Player Profile: Andre Dillard (OT Washington State)


Andre Dillard

Offensive Tackle

6’5”, 306 lbs.

Overview: At 306 pounds the Washington State product is considered to be a starting LT tackle in the NFL’s pass-happy league. The senior Dillard has strung together a few solid seasons and has shown his ability to protect the QB’s blind side at the pro level. His current projected rounds to be drafted are the 2nd or 3rd.

Pros: Dillard has quick feet for his size and is able to head off edge rushers before they make their move to get off the block. In instances where he’s gotten beaten off an initial block, he has shown the ability to recover and keep the pocket clean in order to give his QB enough time to execute a play downfield. Without a doubt his pass-blocking ability will be what pushes him into a starting role in the NFL.

Cons: He is not a superior run blocker or a terrible one either. He has shown ability to be quick and sustain his block but will have to work on the strength and consistency of his run-blocking capabilities to deliver the complete package. Even if he never transforms into a superior run blocker, he is at least serviceable in that regard and can compensate with his athleticism and quick feet.
