Strong Points: Very good edge size to go along with outstanding speed and overall athleticism. Strong showing at the combine. Long arms. Flashes as a pass rusher and run defender. Flashed being able to close off blocks.
Weak Points: Doesn't play up to his athletic ability. Lacks instincts and can be slow finding the ball. Inconsistent hand use. Despite size and athleticism, he isn't overly aggressive. Lacks awareness in coverage. Doesn't play with strength and often gives ground.
The Way We See It: Looking at the athletic numbers Hollins put up in Indy, we would think he should be a premium-round player. The problem: His athletic numbers don't match his production. He does flash and will make plays he should make, but that's it. He ran 4.51, jumped out of the building and did 25 reps of 225 pounds, yet he's a very average player. The biggest problem as I see it is that Hollins lacks instincts, causing him to guess and not play with aggressiveness. Instincts are innate, and I don't see this issue changing. A club will take him earlier than my grade with the hopes that he can turn into a player ... it won't happen.
