Draft day is supposed to be a dream come true for young men every spring. For former LSU left tackle La’el Collins, this week has turned into quite the opposite.

On Tuesday, news came out that police want to speak with Collins regarding the murder of a 29-year-old pregnant woman, Brittney Mills, whom Collins knew and may have been romantically linked to. The Baton Rouge Police Department has said that Collins is not a suspect.

On Wednesday, The Advocate (Baton Rouge, La.) reported that Collins left Chicago, the site of the NFL draft, to tend to the matter. There is a possibility he could return to the draft by Thursday night, according to that report, but as of Wednesday night Collins had not met with investigators. According to a separate report from The Advocate, Collins’ interview with police will not take place until after the draft.

On top of that, the NFL’s view of the potential first round pick seems to be getting a bit murkier. According to a report from MMQB.com’s Peter King, some teams are now reconsidering whether or not they want to get involved with the prospect at all.

Per King’s report:

…One team I talked to that is interested in drafting a tackle in the first round is now re-thinking whether Collins will even be on its board on Thursday night. This team’s thinking goes: How can you draft a guy who’s being sought in connection with the death of a woman, even if police are saying now he isn’t a suspect? He needs to be exonerated by Thursday. Fair or unfair, Collins needs to address this today, and with finality.

Leading up to the draft, experts pegged Collins to be drafted anywhere from the fringe of the top 10 to as low as No. 28, but he is a consensus first-round talent. King’s report doesn’t say that Collins will definitely fall out of the first round, but it does sound like Collins might see his stock suffer as a result of this terrible situation he’s now involved in. However, now that we know he won’t meet with investigators until after the draft, his status becomes even less clear than before.

Collins planned to submit to a paternity test after the draft, according to NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport.

If Collins is the father of the woman’s child, which was delivered and is under medical care, teams fear he could be named as a suspect, according to Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio. PFT’s Darin Gantt has reported that Collins and his lawyer have an alibi and witnesses to verify it and hope Collins will be cleared of any involvement.

While Collins’ abilities on the football field are not in question, it now seems as if the NFL is becoming wary of drafting him. With the league’s recent, highly publicized legal issues, including Ray Rice’s domestic violence incident and Aaron Hernandez’s murder conviction, teams appear to be less willing to take a chance on a player that could have legal issues on their hands.
