AJ Dilton Boston College RB | 2020 NFL Draft Profile

88 out of 100

2nd Round Selection

Dillon is an angry young man on the football field and is a joy to watch. He fights for every yard and is incredibly hard to tackle. He uses those huge thighs to push his big frame through one defender and onto the next. He gains the hard yards, averaging only 4.9 yards per carry in 2018. Which was down from his 5.3 yards per carry in 2017. These numbers say two things, he would play better in front of a great O-line and he isn’t afraid of grinding out the yards for his team. He knows how to find the right lane and pushes his foot to the ground and takes every crease he can. He is an excitement machine and will be on everyone’s radar come April 2020.

Tries to be too fancy at times. Spins around players instead of just putting the head down and ploughing through defenders. Will get in into trouble in the NFL. Professionals won’t fall for it more than once.

When Available

75-yard TD. Impressive.

Dillon is a good RB, not a great. The more he continues to grow as a player, the better he will become. He has a high ceiling and doesn’t leave anything on the field. He gives his all every week. NFL teams will respect this. Look for him in the late 1st, early 2nd rounds.
