The Packers added Boston College RB A.J. Dillon in the 2nd round of the 2020 NFL Draft. Dillon served as his team’s workhorse in all 3 seasons on campus, registering rushing lines of 300-1,589-14, 227-1,108-10 and 318-1,685-14. His 4,382 career rushing yards and 38 career rushing scores are both school records. Dillon crushed the Combine, running a 4.53-second 40-yard dash at 6’0 and 247 pounds to earn a 97th percentile Speed Score. He also posted 96th and 97th percentile marks in the vertical and broad jumps, finishing with a 97th percentile SPARQ score. Dillon doesn’t look like an uber-athlete on tape, though. He needs a runway to hit top speed and has very little wiggle. He’s also a near-zero in the passing game, totaling just 21 receptions over the past 3 seasons. Dillon joins Aaron Jones and Jamaal Williams in Green Bay’s backfield. HC Matt LaFleur has been hesitant to make Jones a feature back — and this pick likely means that will continue. Longer term, it's worth noting that both Jones and Williams are set to become free agents next offseason.

Injury Predictor

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.
