  • Why does Austin Collie get no respect?

    He led the nation in recieving yet isnt considered a top receiver. I guess you can argue competition but he did well against utah who won the sugar bowl. Crabtree didnt face that great of defense's in the Big 12 and hes still considered a top prospect. Collie should be up there with the top 5

    David Ball, Mike Hass (big fan of both, btw)... Just because he led the nation in receiving doesn't mean he's a great NFL WR prospect.

      I think he needs to better that 4.55 time from the combine. He's a good receiver that i have seen kill a lot of teams out here in the Northwest. A possession receiver with some speed who i actually think may have a nice pro career. My guess would be a 3rd round pick.

        the average time ran by wr's at this combine was 4.6, crabtree is probably going to run around the same time, larry fitzgerarld ran a 4.63 so i hope its not his 40 that is holding him back because it didnt hold others back. I see nothing in Austin Collie's game that doesnt say he wont be a great pro. Hes nothing like Mike Hass, and David Ball didnt even play division 1 i believe
        3rd round pick sounds good but i think he should at least go in the 2nd

            He might turn into a solid slot WR, but this is the draft and he offers nothing to be taken high, good at a lot but not great at 1.

                what does byu or jordyzzz? have anything to do with the fact that he is a good player?.
                What makes you think he can only be a slot receiver?

                  I'm with you.

                  Completely overlooked prospect. Will battle Iglesias as the 8th WR off the board.

                  3rd round probably, 2nd round possibly. I think he'd fit in with the Colts.

                    And the average receiver isn't top 5 by definition (unless there are 10 receivers or less in the draft).

                      Is this a rhetorical question? We all know the answer to the OP....

                      -White
                      -BYU
                      -Average 40 time

                      I love his skillset and I think he's a much better athlete than people give him credit for. He's a complete receiver IMO and I think he'll be a solid #2 in the league.

                      Would LOOOOOOOVE him on the Bucs in round 3.

                        im glad some people realize hes a good receiver, i didnt realize being white and mormon could make you underrated. Kevin Curtis? well he is kind of underrated, although he did choke when it mattered most in the playoffs. Maybe its the Mormon part, cuz people love Welker...well he did bounce around a while before being discovered
                        I wasnt saying he was top 5 in 40 yard speed, just that he had around the same speed as most receivers but is more athletic than people give him credit for. Marques Colston ran a 4.55 and he can stretch the field. Whoever gets this kid is going to get a great receiver, and btw, i hope its not the Bucs that take him hehe, i am a Saints fan, i dont want to scream at my db's twice a year for getting burnt by a player i like. Maybe Sean Payton can pick him up if he falls to the 4th, we dont have many picks and need defense, but hes gotta pick an offensive player each draft and him falling to the 4th would be too great to pass up.

                          I wish he ran a 4.45, because I would have really liked him for the Colts.

                            Didnt Kevin Curtis run a great 40? Big difference. Colston is a physical freak and comparing him and Collie are not even on the same planet

                              Not so sure about that.
