The Denver Broncos will be looking for offensive line help in this year's draft after having line issues last season. It appears they are interested in one of the drafts top offensive linemen.
Collins is listed at 6'5 307lbs, and is one of the better run blockers is this year's class. He's a versatile tackle who is capable of playing left tackle, possibly guard, and even right tackle.
Collins said that he met with the Broncos at the Senior Bowl last month, and will again at this weeks Combine.
"I have talked to them. I talked to them at the Senior Bowl. And I will be talking to them this week as well. I think the system they are going to run is great. I feel like I can fit in any system. That’s just the type of player I am," Collins said.
Collins looks at his former teammates at LSU's success in the NFL and expects he will have the similar impact.
"(Cincinnati’s) Jeremy Hill, (New York Giants’) Odell Beckham (the NFL Rookie of the Year), (Miami’s) Jarvis Landry all made big impacts on their team, I feel like I am the next guy to make an impact," Collins said.
The Broncos may need to trade up to be able to draft Collin's in April's draft. According to NFL Networks draft expert Mike Mayock, Collins is his 3rd ranked offensive tackle in this year's strong class. My guess right now is that Collins is a top 15-20 pick, and the Broncos would have to trade up to select him.
