Nate                           Collins
A First-Team All-ACC selection as a senior, bursting on the scene in 2009 at Virginia, finishing the season with 77 tackles, and team-highs of 10.5 TFLs and six sacks...Struggled at times to produce in his first three seasons in Charlottesville, almost matching his career numbers with a stellar senior campaign...Good pass rusher with the versatility to play both inside and out...Has a penchant for slipping past blockers and disrupting things in the backfield...Fights off blocks well to make plays against the run...An emotional player thaty gives maximum effort.
