Former Alabama, and current New York Giant, strong safety Landon Collins makes the list for the first time – and he did so in style.

Not only did Collins make the list, he made it into the upper echelon at the 28th spot.
In 16 games last season, he made 125 tackles, four sacks, and five interceptions -including one returned for an impressive score:

In three seasons with the Crimson Tide, Landon Collins compiled 184 tackles, 8.5 for a loss, five interceptions, three forced fumbles, and a pick six. Collins run-stopping abilities are rivaled by few, and his ball skills were on display throughout the season.
The 28th spot is a great place to land, especially for someone who has been in the league for just two seasons.
