Collin has been invited to the NFL Combine!! combine is for the 300 or so best college football players in the nation. Quite an honor! Hopefully he can join Brandon Brooks as a Miami graduate playing OL in the pros! LOVE AND HONOR!

    Always nice to see Detroit-area guys do well. Best of luck Collin. You've already made Miami proud.
  • BluesmanBluesman Wealthy Alum
    He is a massive human being and very nice. Spoke with him after the Ball State game.

    Great to see that the sacrifice and commitment he gave to the school and the program gives him this shot.  This is his opportunity to show others what we already know.  Sometimes in life, all you need is a chance and he earned it!  Here is to hoping you have a great couple days in Indy.  Love and Honor.

    I've seen Colin projected around the 4th-5th rounds
  • BluesmanBluesman Wealthy Alum
    One article had him as the 6th or 7th best OT in the draft. Definitely top 10. Great to see. No coincidence the Miami team does better when we have NFL quality OL.
  • I remember him getting quite a bit of playing time in 2013 when the line was awful, I'm glad he was able to develop as a player and finally taste some success this past season.

    Well, if you love him so much, why don't you marry him?

    I've wasted so much time on this thing. It is the best.

    Anyone hear or see how Collin has done at the combine? 
  • BluesmanBluesman Wealthy Alum
    23 reps which honestly isn't great for an OL, 25 inch vertical, 97 inch broad jump. No 40 time, so maybe he didn't run it. Projects as a guard in NFL.

    Given our DE void was just bouncing at lunch and found this tape of Colin (moving great at Combine) and Trawick (deadlift 625#!) at JT highlights.

    Further down Rokeem schooling Dbs and showing his quick feet @ Senior bowl.  Not sure maybe this has been posted, but JT's a good source of player news.

    So Buchanan is possibly a 4th to 5th round pick. Anyone else looking at possibly catching on as a free agent?

    Rokeem Williams?  J.T. Jones?

    Free Agents in this order:

    1) JT
    2) Rokeem
    3) Gearing 

    2/3 is tie, IMO, never know...Rok is 6-foot~0.5 and 200# with mid to low 4.4 speed after training, likely get a shot, JT appears to be a lock @ being signed.  I suspect the Bengals, PITT or Browns will at least look at Gearing.
