Jed Collins

Unless youíre a die-hard fan of the New Orleans Saints, you might not even know who Jed Collins is.

Thatís understandable because a season in which you compile four carries for four yards and two touchdowns and catch 11 passes for 50 yards and two touchdowns isnít going to catch the eyes of casual observers.

But die-hard fans and casual observers alike might want to take a closer look at how much Collins meant to the Saints this past season. He had bounced around the NFL since 2008, but had never appeared in a regular-season game. But the Saints brought in Collins and he wound up replacing Heath Evans quite nicely.

In a season in which New Orleans set all sorts of records, Collins quietly played a very big role. He was responsible for protecting Drew Brees and opening holes for Darren Sproles, Pierre Thomas, Mark Ingram and Chris Ivory.

I thought Jed did an excellent job of blocking and when called upon he did more. FB is a really under utilized position but is so key to blocking in some formations.

Collins was a huge part of our success when running the ball, if you watch a lot of sproles runs, and the mark Ingram run vs texans when his TD won the game, Jed Collins made a huge block which stopped the MLB from making a play

Not a player who is flashy, but if you watch the game closely, you see how much he is a part of our success, great pickup by FO

Do the Saints keep both Collins and Hall on the 53 in 2012? Hall played well on ST.
