Day one of the NFL draft is already finished with six more rounds left to go. For some draftees, not being chosen on day one is a bit of a disappointment. Also, for fans like Jaime Garcia Dias, who you can find on his personal page, their favorite players don’t always get selected.
Of all the names who were selected during Thursday’s nights first round, one notable person not selected was LSU offensive lineman La’El Collins. A good reason for why Collins didn’t draw the interest of any team last night was due to character and off-the-field issues from previously.
Collins is not in any trouble but regardless being tied to anything that may damage a player’s reputation is of great concern and because of that there’s no certainty that Collins will be selected anywhere in the draft at all. Originally he was slated to be a top twenty pick in the first round but now his stock has fallen tremendously, and this was the talk of many teams over the course of the night.
Now the subject becomes if he should wait to be an undrafted selection or even not apply for the NFL in 2015 altogether. If so he would have to wait until 2016 to enter the draft and avoid any financial problems that may occur. What separates Collins from other players with issues is that they have settled them already, whereas Collins is still up in the air in regards to his future.
