A.J. Dillon is a bulldozer and ran for over 1,100 yards in each of his past three seasons at Boston College. He is an in-between tackle runner. Dillon moves well for his size and has an insane contact balance. A train full-steam ahead is an adequate description of Dillon. He has a thick lower body and will pick up big yards when Dillon hits the seam. Dillon did have a lot of carries at BCU and will absorb a lot of contacts, so wear and tear is a concern. He also has to battle Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams for volume.
Dynasty Spin: Dillon could find more chances at volume in 2021 as 2020 is the last year on both Williams’ and Jones’ contract. Therefore, the door is open for Dillon to be the bell-cow unless Green Bay signs Jones to an extension. Dillon is going in the late second round or early third in rookie drafts. He is a late 12th round selection or early 13th in start-ups.
