    Was just about to ask the same question.

    From CBSSPORTS:

    "COMPARES TO: K.J. Wright, OLB, Seattle Seahawks - Like Wright, Collins possesses a unique combination of speed, fluidity and flexibility for his size. However, when Wright came out of Mississippi State, he displayed better all-around instincts and motor than what we've seen out of Collins, who is probably the more gifted athlete. Right now, Collins looks like a developmental project with starting-caliber potential if the fundamentals and instincts can improve."

    He could atleast be solid depth behind ZB, Ayers, and McCarthy... then once McCarthy goes down say Week 6, he can step in as a starter.

    I'm down.. my only concern is that he won't be ready to start at MLB once McCarthy goes down. An unpolished non-first round rookie generally isn't any better than a veteran in free agency.. but at least he would have a lot of upside.
