Bench Press Reps: 21
Collins is a flat out beast in run blocking. His monster frame combined with athleticism allows him to maul defenders after latching on. Despite playing tackle in college, his commended aggression is part of the reason he is viewed as a better suit at guard to begin his career. He has the tendency to over-pursue and lunge at edge rushers which leaves him vulnerable on positioning. He will be an instant plug and play producer, and showed a knack for the guard position during Senior Bowl practices.
