LSU Tigers offensive lineman La’el Collins has had a whirlwind of a week.
After entering the week as a projected first-round pick, Collins was sought after for questioning by police relating to the shooting death of what is believed to be his ex-girlfriend.
Collins is not a suspect at this time, but the uncertainty surrounding is current situation has led to some teams removing him from their draft boards.
On Thursday, there were reports that Collins may not be drafted until he is exonerated and now there is a new report that is even more shocking.
According to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports, Collins’ agent is trying to pull Collins from the draft so that he can clear his name. Collins would then enter the NFL Supplmental Draft later this summer.
There is currently no precedent for the NFL allowing a player to enter the Supplemental Draft after withdrawing from the NFL Draft due to legal issues hanging over their head.
This is going to be a very interesting situation to watch.
