Aviante Collins may be an offensive tackle for the TCU Horned Frogs, but he has sprinter's bloodlines.
And his speed showed when he ran the fastest 40-yard dash by an offensive lineman at the 2017 NFL Scouting Combine Friday. In fact, Collins' time of 4.81 seconds — unofficially timed at 4.75 — was the fastest time by an offensive lineman since the 2013 Combine.
Collins' father Bill was an All-America sprinter at TCU, who won multiple Southwest Conference titles in the 1970s. Collins' brother Lavon was also an All-America sprinter at TCU.
The 6-foot-6, 295-pound Collins also added 34 reps on bench press, tied for second best in his position group.
Collins is a projected late-round pick in the 2017 NFL Draft, but the athleticism he showed at the Combine might boost his stock.
