The only that is sure is that until he signs, apparently no one knows what's going on:

there were reports that he met with Ryan. Guess those aren't true

Re: La'el Collins, What Do We Know?!?

And the plot thickens:

Ex-LSU football star La'el Collins has told police he has an airtight alibi in the murder of the pregnant woman suspected of carrying his child ... TMZ Sports has learned.
Sources close to the investigation tell us ... Collins -- who was a projected 1st round NFL draft pick before the double murder -- spoke with investigators and said he has witnesses and phone records that prove he was nowhere close to Brittney Mills on the night she was gunned down.

The reward is greater than the risk. Now if gets his name clear you gotta fight prolly all 32 teams for him.
His agents said they wouldn't sign after the fourth round also (?) I'd of gambled a 7th on him, .

Actually a smart move on his part. if drafted and signed he is stuck in the standard rookie contract locked in for 3 to 4 years with and option year still hanging over his head.

By going undrafted, he signs as a UDFA picking his team and can redo his contract as yearly as the end of the second year. 1.75 mill is not much compared to a first rounder but his pay day all rookies wait for comes 2 to 3 years earlier than every one else drafted

so Lloyd of London here he comes for those first two years and insures the heck out of himself. then payday before every player drafted.

say what they want about the agent. I say Smart move.

now give him all he wants and sign this kid. guarantees all day long

Snagging him would be like getting a little revenge on Roger for the bounty years... It would seem like we got another first... Who knows whrere he signs but at least let us be in the mix.....

Re: La'el Collins, What Do We Know?!?

Other than being drafted in the 1st round the absolute best for him was not to be drafted at all. Now he signs with whom ever he wants and can renegotiate his deal after 2 years, if he was drafted he would have to wait at least 3. All the rest of that stuff about players drafted between this number and that number will not apply if he's as good as advertised.
Teams could have drafted him and it would have been his choice to sign or not but he loses in the long run if that team decides to hold the right to him for as long as possible.
I wish this man all the best if he's is totally cleared in any wrongdoing, he definitely didn't deserve this but he has to take a little responsibility by not making himself available when requested.

If it were me, and I was innocent, I would make a statement, regardless of the draft. Look, I had nothing to do with her death and her unborn child. The last time I spoke with her was _______ and the child is not (or is mine). I want whoever did this brought to justice and will cooperate in anyway that helps to achieve that result.

He didn't do any of this, only saying he has an alibi from what I have read. Guess what? Not being around the crime scene is not saying you had nothing to do with it.

Maybe. But I've learned a little bit about our legal system through my extremely unpleasant divorce - and perhaps the most important thing I've learned through it all is the value of "Radio Silence".

Anything you say can AND WILL be used against you. Lawyers suck. They're trained to spin. Guilty or otherwise (and I sure hope otherwise regardless of where he lands), he's best to go radio silent, and his lawyer is wise for seeing to it.
