Player Overview

Although he might be considered the ?other? defensive end on the roster right now behind James Gayle, it won't take too much longer for Collins to gain more praise for his pass rushing ability. He finished second on the team in sacks last season (6.0), just one behind Gayle. Collins flew under the radar as a prep recruit and redshirted his first season in Blacksburg. He played in every game as a reserve in 2010, recording 25 tackles, 6.5 tackles for loss and 5.0 sacks. Along with Gayle, Collins became a starter last season as a sophomore and impressed in his first season with the first-team defense. He finished 2011 with 57 tackles, 9.5 tackles for loss, 6.0 sacks, one interception and led the team with 29 quarterback hurries, earning All-ACC Honorable Mention honors.

Strengths Weaknesses

Collins is a balanced rusher with the aggressive drive and relentless nature to put pressure on the backfield and create havoc around the ball. He lacks ideal size and doesn't always appear to have a plan, but closes in a flash and is still developing into the player he can be.--Dane Brugler
