Southern Miss Golden Eagles linebacker Jamie Collins put on a freakishly amazing shot at the 2013 NFL Scouting Combine on Monday with some unreal numbers and a combine record.
Collins shined as one of the best athletes in Indianapolis and the 6-foot-3, 250-pound linebacker was consistently among the top performers in every drill for his position.
He started off the day by recording a 4.64 40-yard dash, which was among one of the best times for the linebackers. Immediately after making a good first impression, Collins nearly leaped out of the building with his broad jump of 11-feet-7 inches. The broad jump set a combine record.
If that wasn’t enough, Collins showed off his explosive power one last time in the vertical jump when he leaped 41.5 inches, just one inch shy of the combine record.
While NFL teams have to worry about workout warriors in Indianapolis during the combine, you can be certain that teams and scouts will be looking over the Southern Miss tape to see what they missed with Collins, who is ranked as a top ten linebacker in this class.
Southern Miss went 0-12 last season, but there may be one of the draft’s gems discovered on the winless team.
Here are GIF’s of Collins’ impressive broad and vertical jumps:
