Nico Collins Fantasy Football Profile – 2021 NFL Top Prospects
Nico Collins attended Clay-Chalkville High School in Pinson, Alabama. Collins was rated a 4-star recruit and the no. 2 WR in Alabama. He committed to play football at Michigan over Georgia and Alabama.
As a true freshman, Collins was limited 3 catches for 27 yards in 2 games. He had a breakout season in his sophomore year in 2018, despite playing alongside Donovan Peoples-Jones, Tarik Black, and Ronnie Bell. Collins put up 632 yards and 6 scores on 38 catches, and was second on the team in receiving yards in 2019 with 729 yards from 37 receptions and had 7 touchdowns.
Nico Collins declared early in 2020 that he had “unfinished business” to take care of in college, which would have indicated a jump to Michigan for his Senior year. Nine months later, Nico Collins appeared to have second thoughts. He stopped showing up to Michigan practices after the Big Ten announced plans to postpone the Fall sports season, and has since signed with agent Drew Rosenhaus which would indicate his intent in declaring for the NFL draft. In the end Nico Collins did not play for Michigan in 2020.
Nico Collins will enter the 2021 NFL Draft as part of a rather deep Wide Receiver class. He projects to be a first round pick in the 2021 NFL draft.

The RotoHeat team likes Collins as a prospect. Nico Collins is a big-play threat vertically down the field, and he possesses good speed and ball skills. Collins was not done any favors by the Wolverines’ passing game during his tenure with the team. His quarterbacks failed to really take advantage of the mismatch he was, especially out wide.
