Draft Scout News
08/20/15 - S Landon Collins (knee) will not play on Saturday against the Jaguars. Collins has been unable to practice this week after suffering a sprained knee in last week's preseason opener.
08/15/15 - S Landon Collins has a MCL sprain according to head coach Tom Coughlin, who added that there's a good chance that the rookie will be out of action for "more than one week." Collins told reporters after the game that he banged his knee on a play in the first half.
06/22/15 - S Landon Collins, selected by the Giants in the second round of the draft (33rd overall), signed a four-year contract Friday (June 19).
05/04/15 - New Giants safety Landon Collins, the team's second-round pick, has temporarily been assigned No. 27, previously worn by Stevie Brown. However, Collins is hoping that once he comes in for the Giants' rookie minicamp next week, he can get a specific and different number. That number would be 26, famously worn by the late Sean Taylor during his days at the University of Miami. "When I talk to the equipment manager again, I will do that," Collins said at his introductory press conference, perhaps unaware that the number is already in use by running back Orleans Darkwa. "I'm going to ask for it."
Up until this year, No. 26 was worn by former safety Antrel Rolle, who signed with the Bears during free agency. If Collins ends up getting No. 26, it would be only fitting to try to continue the tradition of solid play and leadership that Rolle was known for during his five-year stint with the Giants. "He's a big safety too. He's fast and a great guy," Collins said when asked about Rolle. "He knows the game very well." Like Rolle, Collins is confident that he can ensure there is no drop-off during the upcoming transition from Rolle to the younger generation. "I came into a lot of places. I came from Dutchtown. I came in right after Eric Reid. Going into Alabama I came in after Mark Barron and Ha Ha Clinton-Dix and Vinny Sunseri," Collins said of the perceived pressure to replace Rolle. "I had plenty of big shoes to fill, so I'm going to definitely fulfill those shoes and keep it going." - The Sports Xchange
05/04/15 - A closer look at the Giants' six picks: Round 2/33 -- Landon Collins, S, 6-0, 228, Alabama...The Giants traded up seven spots to grab the best safety on the board, thus filling a glaring hole on the roster. While Collins, like incumbents Nat Berhe and Cooper Taylor, lacks NFL starting experience, he is projected to be in the lead for one of the two openings at the position in the starting lineup. - The Sports Xchange
