Bill Streicher - USA TODAY Sports

Safety Landon Collins was a huge pickup for the New York Giants in 2015 NFL Draft, being selected in the second round.

The former Alabama standout and All-American led New York in total tackles (112) and tackles for loss (seven). He totaled nine pass breakups, one interception and a forced fumble.

Collins averaged seven tackles a game this season, with his best performances coming against Dallas, New Orleans, Washington and Carolina. He combined for 37 tackles against all four teams. Collins’ productivity landed him a spot on the NFL’s All-Rookie team, courtesy of Pro Football Writers of America. The list also included his former teammate at Alabama, Oakland Raiders wide receiver Amari Cooper.
