 Draft Scout College Football Player News

  Josh Gattis has worked with some big-time receivers. At Penn State, he helped mold Chris Godwin into an NFL third-round pick. He coached Jerry Jeudy and Henry Ruggs III, a pair of first-round picks, at Alabama. So when Michigan's offensive coordinator dishes out praise, it deserves some paying attention to. And that's exactly what Gattis did last week when the topic of Michigan receiver Nico Collins came up. "Nico Collins, I firmly believe, is one of the best receivers in all of college football," Gattis, who is also Michigan's receivers coach, told reporters in a video conference call on Thursday. "And when you look at it statistically, his numbers match up there."

It's hard to decipher what Gattis was referring to here - a follow-up question was never asked - as Collins failed to finish in the top 50 nationally in receiving yards, receptions or yards per game in 2019. Still, the 6-foot-4, 222-pound Collins put together respectable seasons in back-to-back years, earning honorable mention all-Big Ten honors the last two. This past fall, the Birmingham, Ala., native caught 37 passes for 729 yards and seven touchdowns, leaving a talented and busy Wolverines receiving group in receiving yards per catch (19.7) and per game (60.75). And he did it while navigating injuries. "He was another guy that missed all the offseason last year," Gattis said. "So, when Nico started off the season, he had just gotten cleared two weeks before the season started. "He's a tough kid, because he played the previous year (2018) kind of beat up a little bit." - Ann Arbor News
