RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

There was no outlook written for Nick Collins.

2011

Collins is a better real-life safety than he is a fantasy IDP. Because he’s a standout in coverage and does a good job anticipating quarterbacks and route runners, teams avoid throwing his way. For that reason, Collins gets an unusually low number of tackle opportunities for a safety. He had just 53 in 2009 and only 70 last year. Of course, Collins’ lack of tackles is somewhat offset by his interceptions. His total of 17 in the last three years is impressive, but it’s tough for owners to get only four or five productive games from an IDP over the course of a full season.

2010

Collins doesn’t deliver as many hits as other top IDP safeties, but he’s one of the league’s better ball-hawks, with 13 interceptions the last two seasons. A series of nagging injuries (calf, chest) slowed him last season, which may have contributed to his low tackle numbers (47 on the year). With good health, he should be able to deliver a few more hits in 2010.

2009

Heading into the 2008 season, Collins was regarded as a solid-but-unspectacular defensive back, with a resume featuring three seasons of decent tackle numbers and little in the way of anything else. But last season a new facet of his game emerged – ball-hawkery, in the form of a career-high seven interceptions, three of which he returned for touchdowns. Now entering the final year of his rookie contract, Collins could benefit from Dom Capers’ new Packers D, where his range and speed will be relied upon. An improvement in tackles would boost his stock, which is dependent on interceptions.

2008

Collins may be at a make or break point in his career. He's always had a lot of potential, but has never made it to the next level in his development. He's solid, but not spectacular and will be pushed by Aaron Rouse for playing time.

2007

Collins improved in every statistical category in 2007, with his finest performance coming at the last game of the season where he recorded two interceptions against the eventual NFC Champion Bears, returning one of them for a touchdown. Collins is a big-hitter with a lot of speed, and with a few more game-changing plays per season, he'll be a regular in pro bowl discussions.

2006

Collins started at safety in 2005 as a rookie and held his own. He has a lot of potential and will try to build on his solid rookie season.

2005

Collins, the Packers second round draft choice in 2005, has looked very good in camp and will begin the season as one of the starting safeties. He still has a lot to learn but is a tremendous athlete.
