Re: Texans sign LB Cameron Collins to practice squad
Biography: Two-year starter used at both linebacker and safety. Senior totals included 55 tackles and 4 tackles for loss after he had 39 tackles and four tackles for loss as a junior. Posted a career-best 70 tackles as a sophomore. Never recorded an interception in college. All-academic performer four straight years.
Positives: Athletic defender with an undeveloped game. Breaks down well, effectively uses his hands to protect himself and does a solid job diagnosing the action. Gets depth on pass drops, moves around the field well and fluid out to the sidelines.
Negatives: Inefficient, takes too many steps getting to plays and overpursues the action. Possesses more of a short-area burst that he cannot sustain. Marginal skills in coverage.
Analysis: Collins looks the part and showed flashes of dominance as a sophomore yet never took his game to the next level. He's a size/speed prospect who must start to transfer his athletic skills onto the football field on a full-time basis.

Not sure where this guy fits in our defense.
Doesn't seem to fit the OLB model you would expect.
