Overview

One of the most productive receivers in college football history, Dillard's 50 career touchdown catches from QB Chase Clement set an NCAA standard. He has 60 total touchdowns in this career and his 257 catches for 3,614 yards (14.1-yard average) over the past three years speaks to his production. The three-time All-Conference USA and All-American lacks great speed and size, but not all successful pro receivers look like track stars on the field. Had an arm span of 32 inches and a hand span of 8 1/2 inches at the combine.

Analysis

Strengths

Positives: Productive receiver with long arms and adequate size. Very reliable hands, snatching the ball away from his body. Can free himself off press coverage using his hands and quick movements on the line. Excellent route-runner as he stays low in his cuts, sells the jerk route well and does not round off out-cuts. Good vision and a naturally elusive runner with the ball in his hands. Lulls defenders to sleep off the line, then takes off down the seam. Adjusts to throws to his outside shoulder. Negatives: Lacks great athleticism and explosiveness off the line. Lacks the pure speed to separate from corners or safeties. Has trouble getting to corners and linebackers to block at the second level. Gets knocked off his routes too easily. Won't win many battles for the ball in the air because of relatively weak hands and vertical, although he can shield the defender. Likely a slot receiver. Must adapt to a new quarterback after building a great relationship with Clement.
