Collins Signs With Dallas

Offensive tackle La’el Collins was a projected first round pick until police requested to speak to him about a crime in Baton Rouge, Louisiana. Collins was reportedly not a suspect.

Collins’ draft stock plummeted, and he went undrafted. However, one week after the first round of the draft, the Dallas Cowboys signed the former LSU Tiger to a three-year deal, according to CBS Sports NFL Insider Jason La Canfora.

25 teams reportedly had interest in Collins, who could play immediately at left guard in Dallas.

After adding cornerback Byron Jones in the first round (27th overall), the Cowboys drafted defensive end Randy Gregory in the second round (60th overall). Gregory was a potential Top 10 pick before off-the-field conduct sank his draft stock.

The Cowboys found a way to acquire three first round talents with one first round pick.
