John Collins is an athletic big man that may have an intriguing set of skills.  He is a high motor player that can score on a lot of hustle plays, and he also is a good low post scorer that possesses a great shooting touch around the basket.​

Plus, he also is a very good rebounder and shot blocker, but Collins can also tend to be incredibly foul prone at times.  Right now, Collins has been rising up draft boards due to having a very good sophomore season.  With his skill set, he could end up being a very good player in the NBA.
