5 Instant-Impact Rookies In The 2015 NFL Draft

Amari Cooper

2. Landon Collins, S

There have been some booms and busts when it comes to Alabama safeties over the past couple of drafts, but Collins displays the tools that suggest he is going to be the force that teams interested in him expect.

Collins will be a run-stopping safety to sure up the back-end of a defense. He was a four-year starter with the Tide, and his 2013 season helped him to truly stand out as an elite single-high defender.

We expect Collins to come off the board at No. 9 to the Giants, but there will be teams in the latter half of the first round anxious to grab him.
