La'el Collins situation has 'too many uncertainties', Chiefs GM John Dorsey says

The situation surrounding LSU OL La'el Collins is one of the most unique I've seen before an NFL Draft. That's what I told GM John Dorsey this morning and he explained that the Kansas City Chiefs decided to pass on the LSU lineman because of the uncertainty surrounding it all.

"That's an ongoing situation," Dorsey said on Monday morning. "As I sit here, I think he does have the talent to play the game of football, but there are too many uncertainties right now. Right now I'll just pass until I get some more clarity because I like to get all my facts before I make decisions."

If you don't know the situation, Collins is wanted for questioning - but is not a suspect - in the death of a 29-year old woman. Per an NFL.com report:

Collins is scheduled to meet with Baton Rouge (Louisiana) police in connection with the shooting death of a 29-year-old pregnant woman, Brittany Mills. He is not a suspect in the case, and had a previous relationship with Mills. NFL Media's Albert Breer reported Collins will meet with authorities after the draft.

Collins was figured to be a first round prospect before this news came out days before the draft. He ultimately went undrafted and is said to be determining his next course of action.
