With the two best corners off the board when the Cardinals picked at number 16, Cliff Kingsbury decided to stack his linebacking corps with Zaven Collins one of the most dynamic, exciting defensive prospects in this years NFL Draft.
Boasting the 12th best scoring defence in 2021 Kliff Kinsgbury refused to stand pat on the defensive side and drafted arguably the second best linebacker in the draft. With the 22nd ranked run-defence needing a boost Collins is the ideal player to come in and raise the play alongside last years top pick Isaiah Simmons.
ZAVEN COLLINS IS A STUD LB
Draft Network had this to say about Zaven Collins, “He demonstrated notable growth in 2020, becoming a complete defender and making high-impact, clutch plays seemingly every week. The Belichick disciples and teams that deploy that style of defense are likely salivating over Collins’ skill set and he projects as an impact defender in the NFL that can make plays in a variety of ways.“
The pick leaves Arizona still with a lot of questions at corner that we expect to be addressed early on day 2. Stay tuned for more updates.
