Draft Rewind 2009 - Austin Collie - Indianapolis Colts

What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about AUSTIN COLLIE: BYU, 6007 200 4.56. Three-year starter. Outstanding production. Led the country with his 105 receptions. Averaged 14.5 yards per catch and had 15 touchdowns. Can make the great circus type catches in his hands. Also took direct snaps from center at times. Competitive receiver that will catch a ball in the crowd. Comes back to the ball. Good route runner. Takes pride in his ability to challenge for an NFL roster spot. Hard working receiver that is just as effective without the ball. Demonstrates the ability to make the catch, secure the ball, and avoid the tackle. Finishes plays and falls forward. Can play in a variety of alignments. Smart. Can adjust to blitz. Well built and durable. Plays fast. No hold up on press coverage. Comes out of turn smoothly with a burst to separate. Will be a 24-year old rookie. Was on a two-year mission. OSR:21/38. Third/fourth round. (A-31, H-9, VJ-34, SS-4.24).
