BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter began his career at running back. Senior-year totals included 87 tackles. Posted 33/2/3 as a junior.
POSITIVES: Strong, run-defending safety who.s at his best in the box. Fast up the field, quickly closes to the action, and likes to hit. Above-average athlete.
NEGATIVES: Struggles when the ball is in the air and does not have a good feel for coverage. Gets caught out of position and does not consistently take good angles to the action.
ANALYSIS: Dillard improved his game last season in only his second year in the defensive backfield. He has shown enough to be given consideration in camp as a conventional strong safety.
PROJECTION: Undrafted Free Agent
