He began as a safety. Oregon used the 4-2-5 alot. So fairly soon in his 2010 year, he was actually used as a "hybrid" safety/LB until they felt his size would be better served full-time at the LB position.

Ruud has the potential to be a very nice pickup providing injuries haven’t limited his range and burst, he’s not a speed guy.
One of the knocks on him coming out of Nebraska was his lack of take-on ability to play inside. He’s more of a run and hit LB which worked well for him in Tampa’s scheme. Some scouts felt he was best suited to play will in an even front.

Ruud definitely has it between the ears, very smart and instinctive. He had no trouble adjusting to three different defensive coordinators and four different defenses at Nebraska. Finished as their all-time leading tackler, set a school record for tackles as a junior and was defensive MVP his senior year.

If he still has the physical skill set he should be able to help us in coverage. Like others have said in early post, could be looking at a platoon situation with Dobbins.

If he has anything left, Wade will know how to put it to use.

He played safety in the Pac-12 at or near 6'-4" and 240? Color me intruiged at least.

Ruud is a better player going backwards than forward. I think what they will do is on base downs, it will be dobbins and james, but on obvious passing downs, it will be ruud. He is really good at understanding route concepts. Since so often the texans run 4-1-6 against a pass down, he will get snaps there. Neither dobbins nor james are as good vs pass and ruud. In todays game, a passing game hurts more than running the ball.

YEP. I feel so good about our decision-making as an organization right now. We had nobody at LB that would not get exposed against the top QBs when the playoffs near. This move solves that issue.

Probably intrigued by his athleticism and size. Bring him in to get some extended work in with him and see where it goes.

If he doesn't work out, who cares...

I just pulled out the Winsonsin/Oregon St. game.
I figure the game against the Badgers is as good as any to watch Collins.
Wisconsin's offense is as close in scheme and talent to an NFL team as you can get (at the collegiate level.)
Pro-offense. Good QB (Wilson - starter for the Seahawks). Big and strong O-linemen. Good TE. Good RB. Good receiving corp.

Collins doesn't look half bad, but I don't think he can make it in the pro unless he improves by leap and bound. A very long shot!
His best bet is to play very very well on ST.

I see a trend toward increased use of hybrid safety types to counter the increased use of tight ends in today's offenses.

I rewatched the PS game against the Saints; Rudd looks healthy and ready to play.

It's just that he's been playing quite a bit of 4-3 LB of late.

I think he needs to learn the playbook, that's all.

He still looks like a pretty good player to me.
