They share the same agent, after all, so the two got to know each other during the pre-draft process and Collins is happy to have Haskins, the 15th overall pick of the 2019 NFL Draft, as a teammate.
The early part of the draft, though, provided some anxious moments for Collins when considering his former team, the New York Giants, picked sixth and was in the market for a quarterback.
"I thought he was going to the Giants, honestly," Collins said on the latest RapSheet + Friends podcast show. "That's who I thought they were going to get, that's who I thought they needed, and they decided to go elsewhere. When I saw we picked him up, I was like, we just stole the best quarterback."
"I'm excited to have him," Collins said. "I know the organization is and other teams are going to be afraid of him."
