BIOGRAPHY: "Four-year starter awarded all-Conference honors the past three seasons while being named to several all-America teams. Senior totals included 87/1,310/20 after 79/1,057/14 as a junior. Sophomore numbers included 91/1,247/21."

POSITIVES: "Ultra-productive college receiver with marginal upside for the next level. Uses his hands to get off jams at the line of scrimmage, sells routes, and nicely works back into the clearing to make himself an available target for the quarterback. Displays good awareness, consistently finds a way to get separation from defenders, and easily adjusts to the errant throw. Displays outstanding eye/hand coordination, a sense of timing and plays with a large degree of quickness. Easily adjusts to the errant throw down the field, displays soft hands and effectively uses his frame to shield away defenders and protect the ball. Fights hard to make the reception and plays with excellent body control."

NEGATIVES: "Does too much unnecessary body catching, which leads to dropped passes. Lacks strength and may have difficulty handling the jam or battling large opponents at the next level. Does not possess the second gear. May not have the mental makeup to be a special teams player at the next level."

ANALYSIS: "Dillard was a tremendous college player whose stats were inflated by the system he played in. He offers a good degree of pass catching skills and is likely to be over drafted in April, yet he has marginal size and poor speed. Dillard has a skill to fit in as a fourth or fifth receiver at the next level, and it would enhance his value to an NFL organization if he changes his attitude toward becoming a punt returner."

PROJECTION: Third/Fourth Round
