Collins was the 52nd pick, taken in the second round of the 2001 draft.

Collins played 480 games over eight seasons with the Jazz, starting 216 of them. Although not much of an offensive threat, Collins was a solid center known for his position defense and hustle.

His best statistical season came in his rookie year, when Collins averaged 6.4 points and 4.2 rebounds.

Wow, Eaton was a beast. I forgot what a monster he was.

This article could have at least given an honorable mention to the 1979 draft pick (Paul Dawkins) who made the team while the #1 pick that year (Larry Knight) was waived and never saw the court. Dawkins was a 10th round pick and probably the only player ever taken in that round to ever make an NBA team. He had a productive rookie year on a poor Jazz team. Also there were other noteworthy low picks such as Greg Deane out of the Universty of Utah who made the team and contributed.
