You want to know how to contend for a Defensive Player of the Year award?

Well, it goes beyond just having "talent" - a lazy, overused phrase for describing a productive player.

Landon Collins, who finished as Pro Football Focus' second-best safety last season, is not only "talented" but his mindset is what sets him a part from others at his position.

Following the NFL's six-game suspension of Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott, here's what Collins had to say, according to NJ.com's Dan Duggan:

He continued with this, too:

That, right there, tells you all you need to know about Collins' attitude and drive to be the best that he can be, and it's something that certainly rubs off on those around him. 

As the leader of one of the league's best defenses, the young safety is making a statement to the rest of the league, that the Giants, who allowed the second-fewest amount of points in the league last season, have no plans of taking a step backward this season.

Great quote.
