Nebraska DT Maliek Collins declares for NFL Draft


The Nebraska Cornhuskers pulled off a big win in the Foster Farms Bowl over UCLA Saturday night. They capped off a 6-7 season that was full of success, mostly thanks to their defensive line.

It looks like they will lose a big part of their defense for next season. Defensive tackle Maliek Collins announced in the post-game press conference that he would be entering the 2016 NFL Draft.

Collins sent a message to Cornhusker fans after the win last night and he is pretty grateful for him the last three years.

During his career, Collins recorded 86 tackles, 21.5 for loss, eight sacks, and one forced fumble. He will certainly have a great career in the NFL.
