I guess it would go by preference. I personally wouldn't take either Jones or Eifert @ #17. But if I had to choose between your scenarios, I would actually go with Eifert-Collins. There isn't as big as a gap as you think between Jones & Collins. Collins has heaping upside compared to Jones. Jones might be more NFL ready but neither see the field at OLB year 1 here. I think talent wise, your combined comparison is pretty close.

Now compare Eifert, Hunter, Lemonier to your two name package above. I think clearly more value exists in the three player package.
