Collins has lost weight heading into training camp this season, Bob Condotta of The Seattle Times reports. "He is in phenomenal shape. He showed it," head coach Pete Carroll noted. "He's just clicking out here for us in every drill that we've done throughout every single day that we've been out here. So he's shown really well for himself in competing and all that. He's leaner, he's faster, he's quicker. He's all of that and he knows what's he doing now, so he's really positioned himself well to compete for a spot."

Seattle's running back by committee leaves plenty of mouths to feed between Eddie Lacy, Thomas Rawls and C.J. Prosise, but it's the other six backs on the current roster that will really have to prove their worth during training camp if they hope to remain on the 53-man roster. Out of those six, Collins figures to have the best shot of securing a spot, considering the second-year pro did receive 31 carries last season. Pair that with his weight loss, and Collins seems like the favorite to lock down the No. 4 spot on the depth chart.
