AJ Dillon's a bull ...

Manny in CA : 2/15/2020 1:10 am

Possible 2nd or 3rd day gem.

Perfect compliment to Barkley - Thunder and Lightning
I really like his burst

Definitely runs with power but has some deceptive quick burst speed
As a BC fan I am shocked this

Guy is being projected so late. He is a pre stud. Was hampered by injuries his sophomore year and the by a horrible (and I mean horrible) an situation his junior year. I completely whiffed on Andre Williams so that has to be a fear but when healthy AJ Dillion is one of the best backs for in between the tackle running I have seen in a while.
We need one of those

he's 240 lbs & runs 4.54 40.
they say if you can catch him you can't tackle him and if you can tackle him you can't catch him.
I've wanted a RB that could offer . . . .

the capabilities some attribute to Dillon for a long time. And there's no doubt he's a big, strong man. But the first time I watched him on video there was something that bothered me about his game. And whenever I revisit it, that same thing jumps out.

Now I'm sure it's partly an Andre Williams hangover, and though I can't recall specifically which, some other BC players that haven't worked out. But when I watch Dillon, the first term that jumps out is, ponderous. He looks heavy-legged.

As a RB he has good vision, and can cut, but has questionable balance. And I don't really see the outstanding burst cited. And what is most troubling is if he looks this way against BC opponents, how are those traits going to play out against NFL talent where defenders are much faster and more athletic? I.e., is he just going to get bogged down before he ever gets rolling?

In fairness, I've seen RB's with similar styles and body types succeed in the NFL. Can't recall most, but Jerome Bettis is one. These were players whose positive qualities were so significant that they obviated their shortcomings.

I see Dillon as a 50/50 shot to make it as a RB in the NFL. And likely a boom or bust one.
the offense will be completely built aroung Saquon

He will be on the filed 95% of the time. I'm not spending a premium pick on someone who "may" touch the ball 5 times a game.
No problem with taking a guy like this

As early as round 3 or 4. We need a between the tackles guy that can run it 8-10 times a game and spell Barkley or fill in if god forbid he gets injured again.
Probably Better to Look Beyond a Highlight Film

One game
Notre Dame v BC 2019 - ( New Window )
And  
Angus : 2/16/2020 4:44 pm : link
another
Louisville v BC - ( New Window )
Looks ok

Maybe he could be one of the seventh round picks.
