Anthony Collins makes a lot of sense in a back-up role.... but if he just needs a change of scenery, could hold the fort down until Williams is ready. 29 years old and not as injury prone as Long or Baker, I'd be happy with a Collins signing. I assume there's enough money left in the pot to make this happen. Maybe Collins is "too good" for the money it would cost for the level of player it takes to replace Martin, so Getts will sign some cast-off practice squad player that was a UDFA out of St.Cloud State.
Solid value pick in the 5th and will be a presence in year 1, for sure. He's not an 'electrifying' back like Gurley or McCoy, but is a dependable bellcow kind of back that will carry the rock 15X a game and wear down a defense. I love how he runs through contact and fights for every extra yard. His knowledge of the read option/pistol makes him a perfect fit. So often players talents are underutilized in wrong schemes. For us, he fits what we want/need out of our RB to a T. I would think he and Cam would have instant chemistry too being byproducts of Malzahn's scheme.
