Alfred Collins

Recommended Posts

Wanted to start a thread on the football board since I feel like we are going to see a lot of this kid the next few years. 

Here is his first career sack from the UTEP game. He is a fucking monster. Has to be one of the biggest DLinemen we've ever had on campus.

Carries 305 pounds as well as is humanly possible. 

Do we think that's what he's actually playing at? I don't really have a frame of reference as I've never been more than 10 pounds past 200 but if you told me he was sitting at 320 I wouldn't doubt it. 

For example, Aaron Donald is listed at 6'1" 284.

Collins has 4 inches on him. Although I'm sure Donald has a much lower body fat%.

Our defensive line is finally looking like a Clemson/bama type defensive line from a size perspective.

Both lines, actually. This is what has been missing.

His build makes him look like a Linebacker until you see how much bigger he is than everyone else. He’s seriously got free trunks for legs. Just an absolute freak. He’s the kind of monster we haven’t been landing nearly enough on the DL.
I hope he takes over the starting 3 tech spot at some point this season. At least one of him, Coburn/Sweat, and Ossai would be facing a single blocker every single play.

Is that Ossai who gets rocked by that RB?

i thought that at first too, but watch the All-22 angle.  Ossai gets held and doesn't interact with the RB at all.  It is a weird camera angle that makes it look that way.

That sideline view is real trippy on it looking that way. I def thought that watching it live, like the rb blew our guy up

Every year I like to fire up NCAA '14 and start a new offline legacy with the updated roster and shit on the computer for a few seasons. I made Alfred Collins a day one starter and I don't really play as anyone else on defense. Based on my projections, we should expect Collins to average a stout 10-12 sacks per game this year.

Chris Warren III also won some Heismans (Heismen?) a few years ago, so maybe my system isn't perfect.

When you played as CW3, did you play hard?


your system is fine.

conservatively, sure. 

He reminds me of JJ Watt but with the speed and skillset of Aaron Donald, and the versatility of Lawrence Taylor.
