Jamie Collins had a terrific end to his rookie year. 

In the National Slant, Takeo Spikes joined Tom E. Curran to discuss the potential of the 24-year-old linebacker. 

"A guy who can play the pass extremely well," said Spikes. "One of the question marks is his ability to be able to stop the run.  That's kind of give-and-take because it's so hard, and it's rare to find linebackers that can do that."

Spikes believes linebackers are evolving over time.

"You look at linebackers Patrick Willis, NaVorro Bowman, Luke Kuechly." added Spikes. "These are guys that not only can stop the run, but they play the pass extremely well. I think that's what you're starting to see."
