Can break down a defense on the drive and dish to an open teammate
Uses his body well in the lane
Doesn't get rattled in big situations
Great strength which helps offset his lack of ideal height
Shot selection is questionable at times
Struggles scoring in traffic
Lacks great lateral quickness on defense which could be a huge liability against NBA point guards
Summary: In a very weak year for point guard prospects, Collins appears likely to be a safe bet for a first-round pick. He has gained plenty of experience during his four years at Kansas and should be able to contribute right away. However, I think he lacks the explosiveness and size to be anything more than career backup.
Player Comparison: Will Bynum. Collins has said that he patterns his game after Bynum, who like the Kansas senior, attended Crane High School in Chicago. Both players can score the basketball and use their strong builds to help make up for their height. Bynum had to work his way into the league where he has become a valuable bench player, the likely role that Collins will hold for the majority of his professional career.
