Scouting Report: Strengths
  • He’s ready for the physicality of the NFL; Collins has a stout build, strong core and powerful limbs to step in right away as a three-down player.
  • Strong tackler. Has good power in hands and can anchor, shed, and chase.
  • Despite his relatively tall frame, he typically plays with a low enough pad level and natural power to push the pocket with the bull rush.
  • Collins has the heavy hands and upper-body strength to win with power. He drops his weight and anchors well against the run, holding up at the point of attack and capable of occupying double teams.
  • Quick off the snap in the pass rush, he has violent hands and a good feel for working inside counter moves.
  • Collins has the strong core and powerful hands to shed blockers, and he shows excellent instincts with the ability to quickly locate the ball.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • He’ll have some issues if asked to take on blocks, but Collins also lacks the kind of sideline-to-sideline range you can build a defense around.
  • Collins struggles to shed blockers and doesn’t show ideal lateral movement skills. Collins also needs to make better use of his length and hands in the pass rush.
  • He’s often slow to react and locate the ball against the run.
