Zyon McCollum is the definition of a huge cornerback. He missed the final three games of last season, but was a beast in the first nine games he did play.
The Galveston, Texas native earned All-Southland Conference Awards as a second team member in just 9 games. He finished the season with 23 tackles and broke up 11 passes.
Zyon is one of the best cover corners in the Southland conference and he has been amazing since coming to SHSU. As a true freshman he played in all 14 games, starting 10. He finished with three interceptions to become the first Bearkat freshman to have 3 interceptions since 1973.
In 2018, the huge corner would continue to showcase his skills. He was a first team All-Conference player and made the All-Academic team. Zyon started all 11 games and finished the season with 44 tackles, and added another three interceptions.
Check out his film above and you will see why we think he is a legit NFL prospect.
NFL Draft Diamonds Scouting Notes
I am a big fan of Zyon McCollum, I know I need to fix his name in my highlights above, and I will do it when I get home, but let me tell you this kid is a big time play maker. When I watch his film I see flashbacks to the old school Seahawks. The Legion of Boom that is. Richard Sherman and Brandon Browner. McCollum is a big corner who is physical and fast. I think NFL teams will watch his film and see him in person and fall in love. The kid has a legit chance of hearing his name called in the 2021 NFL Draft. – Damond Talbot, Owner, NFL Draft Diamonds
