Hollins was originally selected by the Denver Broncos in the fifth round (No. 156 overall) of the 2019 NFL Draft. He played one season with the Broncos (2019) before being claimed off waivers by the Rams on Sept. 7, 2020. For his career, Hollins has played in 55 regular-season games with seven starts and has registered 101 tackles (60 solo), 9.5 sacks, nine tackles for a loss, 15 QB hits, three passes defensed, three forced fumbles and a fumble recovery while also posting five tackles on special teams.
