Peter King with Sports Illustrated started off his "Ten Things I Think I’m Hearing About the Draft" article with the La'el Collins situation:
quote:

1. I think La’el Collins, the LSU tackle projected to be a first-round draft choice, has a problem. A pregnant woman Collins apparently knew was murdered last week in Louisiana, and police want to speak with Collins. Police say he is not a suspect. But one team I talked to that is interested in drafting a tackle in the first round is now re-thinking whether Collins will even be on its board on Thursday night. This team’s thinking goes: How can you draft a guy who’s being sought in connection with the death of a woman, even if police are saying now he isn’t a suspect? He needs to be exonerated by Thursday. Fair or unfair, Collins needs to address this today, and with finality.
Collins left the NFL Draft in Chicago Wednesday to speak with Baton Rouge Police about the incident.

Hmmm, interesting a leak that was negative about Mett right before the draft last year and now this bullshite. And the "journalists" running with it trying to make all kinds of crazy implications

I will laugh with glee if the Saints nab him in the late first or second. Those rethinking drafting him are absolutely crazy.
