Cardinals select LB Zaven Collins with No. 16 pick in 2021 NFL Draft

Zaven Collins

By Arizona Sports

Isaiah Simmons last year and now Zaven Collins in the 2021 NFL Draft — the Arizona Cardinals added an athletic linebacker to the team for the second time in two drafts.

The Cardinals selected Collins, the Tulsa product, with the No. 16 overall pick in the 2021 draft that kicked off Thursday.

In 32 career games over three seasons with the Golden Hurricanes, Collins tallied 236 tackles, 7.5 sacks and five interceptions.

Collins projects as a future starting mike linebacker alongside Simmons, but he could immediately be used in heavy linebacker packages that call for him to rush off the edge or drop in coverage.
