Bio: 
Three-year starter who earned First Team All-Sun Belt honors as a center in 2016. Started 13 games at left guard as a junior. Made seven starts at left guard in 2014 and was named Honorable Mention All-Sun Belt.
Pos: 
Smallish but hard-working lineman who gets the most from his ability. Displays outstanding vision, blocks with a nasty attitude and works through the whistle. Fires off the snap into blocks, stays square and shows explosiveness at the point. Effective with the shotgun snap, seals opponents from the action and plays smart football.
Neg: 
Lacks bulk and strength at the point and gets minimal movement run blocking. Average skill blocking in motion for a smaller lineman.
Analysis: 
Collins was a hard-working blocker on the college level who did a good job at both center and guard. He leads by example and shows terrific football intelligence, which could make him a serviceable backup.
