ANALYSIS: Not many players start every game in their college careers, or even stay in college long enough to accomplish such a feat. But Mardy Collins is one of the few who has, and he had no problems playing heavy minutes -- 37.2 as senior and a whopping 39.2 as a sophomore. A fluid player who is fundamentally sound, Collins is a coach's dream in that he simply gets the job done in a workmanlike fashion and does not commit a lot of turnovers. Collins is not a big-time scorer, as he averaged 16.8 points per game as a senior and a slightly better 17.5 points per game as a junior. Collins did shoot his highest percentage as a senior at 43 percent, and his percentage rose every season. He also has good elevation on his shot and a smooth release that could allow him to improve in the future as a shooter. With a keen understanding of how to play as a point guard, Collins knows precisely how to run half court sets, and he uses his height to help him make the passes he needs to. While not a flashy playmaker, Collins is an above average ball handler with an array of hesitation dribbles. He utilizes his long arms well to play the passing lanes well, as his 2.8 steals a game in his junior and senior seasons can attest to. Temple never seems to have great shooters, which would explain Collins' four assists a game last season. While he does not possess a great first step, he is a crafty player who is capable of creating his own shot. Free-throw shooting is a concern with Collins. As a senior, he only shot 60 percent from the line. In the beginning of his career, he would appear to be an ideal NBA backup point guard, which should land him in the mid-to-late first round.
