Colin Davis Peek (born June 4, 1986) is an American football tight end and is currently a free agent. He attended the Georgia Institute of Technology before transferring to the University of Alabama. Peek signed a free agent contract after going undrafted in the 2010 NFL draft. He was part of the Crimson Tide in the 2010 BCS National Championship.

High school career

A Florida native, Peek attended The Bolles School where he played on three consecutive state championship teams. Coming out of high school, he was rated as a Top 30 tight end by both Scout.com (No. 23) and Rivals.com (No. 27). He chose to play at Georgia Tech for coach Chan Gailey.[1]

College career

Georgia Tech

As a true freshman in 2005, Peek saw action in nine games. However, he failed to record any catches.

In 2006, Chan Gailey decided to redshirt Peek.

In 2007, Peek became a significant player for the Yellow Jackets. He started 11 out of 13 games and ranked third on the team with 25 receptions. He accumulated 248 yards and one touchdown. Season highlights for Peek included five receptions for 35 yards against Boston College, three receptions for 31 yard at Maryland, two receptions for 49 yards against Army, and three passes for 28 yards (including a 17-yard touchdown) against Georgia.[1]

Alabama

Following the 2007 season, Chan Gailey was fired as Tech's head coach. When Paul Johnson was hired as the new coach for the Yellow Jackets, Peek knew his role in Johnson's triple option flexbone offense would be limited. He decided to transfer to Alabama who had just finished 7-6 in their first year under Nick Saban.

Peek was forced to sit out the 2008 season due to the NCAA transfer rule. He was eligible to play in the 2009 Sugar Bowl, but he had to miss the game due to an injured foot.[1]

In 2009, Peek was a member of Alabama's first national championship team in 17 years. Peek recorded 26 receptions for 313 yards throughout the season. Three of Peek's receptions resulted in touchdowns. His third touchdown of the year came against Florida in the 2009 SEC Championship Game and was featured on the cover of the following week's Sports Illustrated issue.[2] Peek caught at least one pass in 10 of 14 games. He did not record any catches in the 2010 BCS National Championship Game.[3]

NFL career

After not being drafted in the 2010 NFL Draft, Peek signed as an undrafted free agent with the Atlanta Falcons.[4] However, he was later cut from the team during the 2010 preseason.[5]
