Collins has long been regarded by many as being the best safety in this year’s draft class. Last season Collins registered 98 total tackles, three interceptions and six passes defensed.
McDonald, who measures in at 6006, 203-pounds, registered 35 total tackles last season to go along with two interceptions and 13 pass breakups.
Tull recorded 58 total tackles and 10.5 sacks in 14 games last season. 18 of his tackles resulted in loses and he was credited with nine hurries and two forced fumbles. He was the Defensive Player of the Year for the Southern Conference the last three seasons. He measures in at 6-2, 246-pounds.
As for the 6-5, 271-pound Smith, who many believe will be drafted in either the second or third round, he led his team last season with 15 tackles for loss and 9 sacks. He was selected first-team All-SEC in 2014 for his play.
