Conference: Mid-American
HT: 5-10
WT: 212
40 Time: 4.58
Biography: Two-year starter awarded varying degrees of All-Conference honors the past two seasons. Senior numbers included a career-high rushing total of 178/921/14 with 17 receptions. Posted 700 yards rushing as a junior and 636 as a sophomore.

Positives: Nice-sized ball-carrier best on the inside. Patient, waits for blocks to develop, and shows a burst of speed. Works runs hard, keeps his feet moving up the field, and shows power in his lower body as well as with the ability to break tackles. Uses an effective straight arm to keep defenders away and stays on his feet off the initial hit.

Negatives: Not an elusive runner who makes defenders miss. Has a tendency to slow into tackles.

Analysis: Collins is an adequately sized back on the inside and a prospect who could be used as a short yardage runner.

Projection: FA
