Austin Collie, WR, BYU

Collie is a 23-year old junior who could be the best wideout the vaunted BYU program has ever produced. A huge junior campaign (106 receptions for 1,538 yards and 15 TDs) convinced him it was time to leave. Collie is a sharp, precise route runner who knows how to get open. His football speed is a tad faster than his 40 yard time (ran a slow 4.55 at the Combine). He has quick feet and is more athletic than many believe. Excelling at selling fakes, Collie has very good hands. He lacks prototypical size, but doesn't get shoved off his routes; he gets up and grabs anything thrown his way. He has a good demeanor. Collie lacks explosiveness and initial burst off the line. He will get jammed at the line by physical cornerbacks and he does not achieve separation. Collie tends to run a little upright. He does not like to cross the field and is a suspect blocker, at best. Collie's numbers were inflated by a pass-happy offensive system. Still, the BYU great does have significant upside. He would never be a big play receiver in the NFL, but could find a very good spot as a primary, possession receiver. He is a fifth to sixth round prospect who can pan out in a big way; an intriguing prospect.
