Ask any NFL prospect whom they would like to play for in the league, and you'll probably get the standard answer: "Any team."
Ask the same question to Alabama safety Landon Collins, however, and you'll actually get a specific answer.
The Redskins could undoubtedly use an upgrade in the secondary, but they have the No. 5 overall pick, a spot that might be a little rich for Collins based on his draft projections. While he is NFL Media analyst Mike Mayock's top safety in the draft and possibly the only first-rounder at his position, mock drafts project him more in the range of picks 16-29.
What if Collins' stock slipped on draft night, and he were taken by the Redskins in the second round -- would he prefer that? Collins didn't skip a beat in saying he would rather go in the first round.
"No," he said with a laugh. "Not at all."
No word, however, on what team Collins' mother hopes will draft him after a very public response the day Collins signed with Alabama.
