Jamie Collins, OLB, Southern Mississippi (6-3, 250 pounds)
Once again, the Patriots draft a highly-productive college player who brings excellent versatility to the table. An terrific pass rusher who also excels chasing down plays in pursuit, Collins should develop into a productive starter opposite Chandler Jones in his second season. Not only will he be a good defensive player in time, but he Collins could be a stud on special teams from the get go.
