Just my 2 cents, but, I think when it gets this close to the draft, teams look for a reason NOT to draft a guy. Something to justify to themselves, and maybe fans, picking another player. This could offer teams that justification even though it may turn out to be nothing other than he happened to date someone who was murdered later.

It would be nice if he fell to 31 or better yet 44!

Because either his agent has fronted him money or banks will take the risk since they know what he's about to be worth

why would you hire one if you had nothing to do with it and are not a suspect, that is raising a red flag for me.....

All these players involved in questionable activities its quite the indictment on our society. Only one post mentioned the poor woman that lost her life. Another child orphaned. I wonder if Collins is the father? Crummy timing if he is not Involed.

Re: La'el Collins falling due to murder probe?

What's really scary, dirty is when teams put stories out on a prospect in hopes that he'll fall in the draft...

If there was anyway to prove it, they should bring the hammer down on those teams for it, compensate the player for potential lost earnings...

He'd have to be missing lots of cog wheels up there if he decided to make this happen right before one of the best days of his life.

I don't believe he drops though, teams are compensated in that event. It's not like a complete waste.

Advances from his agent most likely. Gifts, money from endorsements, family, etc. as well. How do you think all these athletes are all blinged out and in fancy attire prior to signing a contract?

Just my 2 cents, but, I think when it gets this close to the draft, teams look for a reason NOT to draft a guy. Something to justify to themselves, and maybe fans, picking another player. This could offer teams that justification even though it may turn out to be nothing other than he happened to date someone who was murdered later.
I concur.

Papz...

Heard you know how to pick LBers?

We called you out in another post but didn't hear from you...

What are your thoughts?

Re: La'el Collins falling due to murder probe?

I think this was the least I've ever followed football during the off season in the past 20 years. I don't even want to speculate, google, and regurgitate someone else's info to use as my own. I honestly have no clue beyond the top few position prospects... will be looking forward to all the scouting reports you guys post afterwards.
