BIO: Three-year starter that's been used at both offensive tackle positions. Started the past two seasons on the left side after playing right tackle as a red-shirt sophomore. Started nine times as a red-shirt freshman at left guard.
POSITIVES: Hot-and-cold blocker with excellent size and athleticism. Starts with knee bend, a wide base and effective blocking in motion. Strong, jolts defenders at the point of attack then turns them off the line. Plays with good lean, quick getting his hands up and finishes blocks when focused. Gets out on the second level and destroys linebackers.
NEGATIVES: Lacks body control, positioning and balance. Not light on his feet, gets lazy, ducks his head and then gets sloppy. Must improve his footwork and lateral slide abilities. Poorly conditioned football player.
ANALYSIS: Collins, a collegiate tackle who projects to guard, is a lineman with an abundant upside for the next level. While he displays a variety of skills when he applies himself, his college career has been marked with inconsistency and underachievement. Must make football a priority and has the ability to play at the next level but questions remain.
