Scouting Report on La'El Collins

by Barry Every - 10/13/2010
  • SpeedBlue Chip
  • SizeBlue Chip
  • StrengthBlue Chip
  • AgilityDivision I Player
  • Foot QuicknessBlue Chip
On the Hoof: Collins has a massive upper body and huge hands. His lower body is leaner and more athletic.
Needs Improvement: Could add some lower-body weight. Collins needs to keep his head up when run blocking for safety reasons and better visibility. He could improve hip flexibility.
Most Impressive: Very powerful offensive lineman that is a smashmouth run blocker but light enough on his feet to excel as a pass protector. He has a versatile body, which will allow him to play almost any position along the offensive line.
Conclusion: I can see him getting early playing time somewhere along the offensive line. He should have a long productive future because of his tremendous overall athleticism and versatility.

Barry Every is a Football Recruiting Analyst for He has worked in the recruiting offices for Mark Richt at the University of Georgia, Bobby Bowden at Florida State University and Mack Brown at the University of North Carolina
