Name  Austin Collie
Born  11/11/1985
Height  6-0
Weight  204
College  BYU
First Team All-Mountain West Conference performer in 2008 as a junior...Decided to skip his senior season after catching 106 passes for 1,453 yards and 15 touchdowns as a junior...Second Team All-MWC as a sophomore and finished three-year career with 30 receiving touchdowns...At 24 years of age, Collie is one of the oldest players in this draft despite his early entry...Well-muscled athlete who is strong enough to take hits over themiddle...Much faster in game situations than he has shown at workouts...Uses his hands rather than his body to snatch the ball and is a terrific route runner...Gets off the line quickly and has the size to catch the ball over defenders...Not considered a true burner but has made many big plays down the field...Needs to show that he has a killer instinct and prove that his collegiate success wasn't largely the result of BYU's wide-open passing attack.
