BIOGRAPHY: Two-year starter awarded all-Conference honors after his junior and senior campaigns. Led the team in receiving as a senior, posting career numbers of 76/937/10 while also averaging 9.7 yards on 14 punt returns. Junior totals included 50/632/12 at receiver.

POSITIVES: Collins has shown great improvement in his game the past two seasons, and he has been a productive player whenever he handles the ball. He projects as a fourth receiver at the next level who could be lined up in the slot and used to return punts.

NEGATIVES: Not a physical receiver nor a sturdy pass catcher who can take a pounding and hold onto the ball. More of a one-speed wideout who cannot beat defenders downfield in a foot race.

ANALYSIS: Quick, reliable underneath pass catcher who doubles as a return specialist. Runs sharp routes, quickly gets into breaks and stays low on exit, getting separation from defenders. Immediately makes the transition from catching the ball to running after the catch. Comes back into the clearing to make himself an available target, adjusts to the errant throw, and displays good eye/hand coordination. Makes the difficult over-the-shoulder reception downfield.
