Default Former LSU CB Jalen Collins Failed Multiple Drug Tests

http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap300...sts-in-college

Here's the article, if you don't want to click the link:

Former LSU cornerback Jalen Collins is viewed as an interesting prospect going into the 2015 NFL Draft but certainly not an unblemished one.

Collins has been knocked by several analysts for his lack of production relative to his skills, and there are concerns about his healing foot, which recently required surgery.

Now Collins must deal with a third issue. NFL Media's Albert Breer tweeted Friday that Collins failed multiple drug tests during his time in Baton Rouge, citing sources with four NFL teams.

As with any prospect, off-the-field issues are going to be examined closely by every club and interpreted in many different ways by each. It can't be a good thing for Collins' stock, though, to have news of failed tests appear less than a week before the draft.

Collins is rated as the draft's No. 2 cornerback in NFL Media analyst Mike Mayock's latest position rankings. He's far from a lock to go in the first round, though.

Five of six mock drafts by NFL Media analysts project Collins to go late in the first round.

NFL Media analyst Daniel Jeremiah said Friday on NFL Network's "Path to the Draft" that the failed tests were something NFL teams have known about "for quite some time," and he believes Collins will be a second-round pick when all is said and done. Jeremiah has Collins landing at No. 45 overall to the Minnesota Vikings in his two-round mock draft.

The New Orleans Saints and Pittsburgh Steelers are among the teams that expressed serious interest in Collins during the pre-draft process, and both teams have needs at the position.


----

So, does this negatively affect his NFL stock? Or since it's been reportedly known for "quite a while", his stock is about where it'll be regardless?

Sooooo. It's college tests, but not the combine test.

And it's finally coming out just a week before the draft, with NFL teams listed as the source?

Yeah, those teams clearly like him quite a bit and are hoping to hurt his stock so they can have a shot at him. It's so clumsy and transparent that it won't work.

Benefits of the team but hurts the prospect the most to where it really hits home within his pay scale to potentially have a few more zeros added. I hate hidden agendas.

Collins is one of the most overrated prospects in this draft

Now that I think about it. Let us all take a step back into the 2013 NFL Draft process for Tyrann Mathieu. Not to assassinate Jalen Collins' character, but where did it go right for him if the same incident comes from the same exact program?

Politics are a wonderful thing to indulge in this time of year when it comes to sports.

Typically this doesn't end up being the case
