Strengths: 

  • Four-year starter
  • Quick feet
  • Explosive lateral quickness gets him to most reach and cut-off blocks
  • Strong character and work ethic
  • High football IQ
  • Pass protection is elite
  • Mirror quickness to stay in front of edge rushers
  • Solid arm length for tackle position

Weaknesses:

  • Not the best run blocker–more scheme based from WSU
  • Experience in different running schemes is limited
  • Punch timing is rigid and expected
  • Want to see more violence in his game
  • Finishing blocks

Analysis: Dillard is a four-year starter at Washington State who excels in pass protection–that would be the case when your system has you pass blocking 85 percent of the time. He has a high football IQ where he should be able to pick up new schemes and tasks with ease–and his character has never come into question. He is very athletic for his size and his feet give him superior balance and lateral quickness. This gives him the ability to stay with most edge rushers. I want to see more violence in his game, specifically in the run blocking department, but that could come with better technique and practice in a running system. He has the athleticism and size to stay as a left tackle for years in the NFL.

Size: 6’5 315lbs
