One of the top offensive lineman in this year's NFL draft may not be a part of the draft after all.
According to Fox Sports' Jay Glazer, LSU offensive tackle La'el Collins is trying to pull out of the draft in order to resolve the situation surrounding the death of his ex-girlfriend:

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported on Wednesday that Collins is being sought out by police regarding the murder of his ex-girlfriend, who was pregnant at the time of her death.
At this point, it doesn't look like Collins will hear his named called during the first round of the regular draft, whether he's officially a part of it or not.
