At BYU Collie redshirted in 2000 and then served an LDS mission to Brazil. As a freshman (2003) he broke a bone in his leg and saw limited action. As a sophomore he played in seven games but recorded no statistics. In his junior season he was named to the Academic All-MWC team and caught 11 passes for 158 yards and two touchdowns. His senior season he had 26 receptions for 437 yards (16.8 avg) and two touchdowns and recorded five tackles.
Despite a lackluster collegiate career, Cameron received an invite to the East-West shrine game and to the NFL combine where he wowed the scouts in the drills. Consequently he climbed the draft boards and was drafted to the Cleveland Browns in the fourth round of the 2011 NFL draft with the 102nd overall pick. Cameron played in eight games as a rookie and had six receptions for 33 yards. In his sophomore season he saw more playing time, but it was his third season where he really broke out. In 2013 Cameron had 80 receptions for 917 yards and seven touchdowns and played in the Pro-Bowl.
Collie was not selected in the 2007 NFL draft but did sign a free agent contract with the Philadelphia Eagles. He participated in summer camp and in four preseason games where he had seven receptions for 81 yards and a touchdown.
Where is he Now?
Collie now works in commercial real estate in Northern California.
