Nick Collins School: Bethune-Cookman
Ht: 5-11 Wt: 206 40: 4.51 Year: 4Sr
Bio: Partial qualifier who played just three
seasons of college football. Started at both
safety spots finishing his senior season
posting numbers of 44.5/6/13. Hauled in seven
interceptions as a junior.
Positives: Athletic secondary
prospect with outstanding size/speed numbers.
Fast sideline- to-sideline, possesses a burst of
closing speed and flashes on the scene. Displays
skill in man-to-man coverage, running downfield
with receivers, reading their eyes, then turning
back to make a play on the ball. Gets vertical
and adjusts to make the difficult interception in
contorted positions. Supports the run or defends
Negatives: Hesitant, indecisive and
not an efficient defender. Too quick up the
field and takes himself out of the action. Slow
locating the ball. Tackles high, which results in
players picking up yardage off initial contact.
Analysis: Possessing outstanding computer
numbers, Collins is a prospect who must start
to translate his athletic skills onto the football
field. A little small for safety, he has potential to
slide over at cornerback and at the very least, a
practice squad player potentially a team's dime
back next September.
