Biography: Though he's undersized to be an NBA two-guard and not enough of a playmaker to be a starting point guard in the pros, Collins is a winner. He helped Kansas dominate the Big 12 during his four years there and won a national title in 2008. Collins had a big part in that success, averaging 13.2 points, 3.9 assists and 2.4 rebounds during his four-year collegiate run. The All-American from Chicago is a gritty player who wants the ball with the game on the line. However, as far as his draft status, Collins may have been better off leaving after a breakout junior season in which he averaged 18.9 points and 5.0 assists to finish among the Big 12's top five in both categories. Those numbers dropped to 15.5 points and 4.5 assists as a senior, though he led the Jayhawks in both for a second straight season. While Collins knows how to get to the basket, he shot a career-worst 42.6 percent this season and is likely to be nothing more than a role player in the NBA. Collins' winning background is a plus, but his lack of size or consistent playmaking skills makes him likely to go in the middle of the second round at best.
