Zaven Collins was a quarterback in high school that happened to play safety and linebacker as well. The four year starter on both offense and defense in high school should explain his athleticism in 2020.
Did you know that Collins rushed for 4,084 yards and scored 54 rushing touchdowns but also threw for 3,056 yards and had 32 dimes for touchdowns in his high school career?
Many are just finding out about the speedy linebacker after a huge play last week on National Television. Well entering this season, Collins played in 24 career games and started 22 of them at linebacker.
Collins has racked up 182 tackles and 17.5 for loss entering his final season. The 6’4, 260 pound linebacker has been a machine in 2020.
This year Collins has 48 tackles, 10.5 tackles for loss, 4 sacks, 1 fumble forced, 4 interceptions, a safety and a touchdown.
Zaven Collins is flying up draft boards. He maybe the biggest draft riser this year. He is working his way into the top 60 players of the NFL Draft, and many are starting to put him over Dylan Moses from Alabama.
NFL Draft Diamonds Scouting Notes
Zaven Collins is a beast on the football field. America is starting to see it for themselves. He seems to be around the football no matter where it is. Four interceptions at the linebacker position is insane. Collins is playing lights out and NFL has been put on notice. Scouts are excited to see this kid up close and personal. He is passing some big names right now at the linebacker position to move up the boards. – Damond Talbot, NFL Draft Diamonds Owner
