It appears that La'el Collins' agent is attempting to withdraw him from the 2015 NFL draft, citing the ongoing investigation into the murder of a woman known by Collins. Collins left Chicago to be questioned by police. Note that Collins is not a suspect in this case, and that other people are being questioned as well. Collins' agent views this as a way to give Collins a chance to recoup some perceived loss of draft day value and target the supplemental draft. Source here.
Our thoughts are with the family of Brittany Mills (the young woman who was killed), Collins, and all who are dealing with this tough moment. This tragic event is yet another reminder that life is about more than just football. --Mike B
Update: the NFL has rejected Collins' attempt to withdraw, so Collins will be available in the 2015 NFL Draft.
