"The Giants were more than happy to trade up to the top of the second round and draft Rolle’s replacement. But Collins remains motivated by the snub. He says the knock against him couldn’t be further from the truth. “I played in the box at Alabama, but I was a safety,” he says. “It was not an ‘in-the-box safety.’ I played free, strong, and played our ‘money’ position, which was our fifth (defensive back) on the field. I was not just an in-the-box safety.”"
