Much like Ra’shede Hageman in 2014, the Falcons knew they would be getting a project player when they drafted Jalen Collins in the second round. Hageman seems to have figured things out entering into year two, and Collins may turn out that exact same way. if that is the case, you can expect Collins to struggle more times than not in 2015.
Collins was beat quite often against the Titans including a 30-yard touchdown pass completed on him. Collins is very raw and will need some time to adjust to the speed of the NFL. Let’s hope his adjustment doesn’t cost the Falcons’ defense in 2015.
