Ourlads' Profile:

2016 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about MALIEK COLLINS: Nebraska, 6017 311 4.97. Junior entry. Two-year starter and team captain from Kansas City, MO. An interior penetrator with light feet. Forces the quarterback off his spot and out of the pocket. Locks out, plays square, and skates down the line in the run game. Good screen instincts. Holds his ground on the line of scrimmage versus a double team. Uses leverage and lower body power on his bull rush. Gets cut every so often but bounces up and sprints to the ball. Explosive first step quickness. The big fellow can run and make open field tackles or run a play down from behind. Plays with a lot of energy and awareness. Quick to read and react. Can get driven off the ball if he loses his knee bend. Has a sudden hit and spin move that he uses rushing the passer. Good agility through traffic laterally or working up the field. Explosive short area tackler who runs through the ball carrier. Plays with a consistent effort and high motor. 2015 stats: 29 T, 6 TFL, 2.5 sacks, 1 PBU, 6 QBH. Edge speed:left 2.20, right 2.15. OSR:11/ 28. Fourth/fifth round. (A-33 1/8, H-9 1/2, BP-25, 10-1.76).
