Pro Football Focus has WSU’s OT Andre Dillard doing a great Joe Dahl impression; Cody O'Connell grades out high as well

COUGAR THIRD-YEAR SOPHOMORE left tackle Andre Dillard is taking after the man he replaced on the Washington State offensive line, Joe Dahl. Pro Football Focus tabbed Dillard as one of its two “national team” o-tackles for his Week Three performance.

Offensive tackle: Andre Dillard, Washington State 86.1 and Connor Williams, Texas 84.2
“Dillard surrendered just one hurry on 52 attempts in Washington State’s spread scheme and he posted the best run blocking grade of his career," says PFF.

Dahl, now in the NFL with Detroit, was cited often during his Cougar career for allowing a miniscule number of sacks and hurries.  Dillard, in his first full year of starting, is offering evidence he might be cut from the same cloth.

Also making PFF's Pac-12 team for Week Three -- Wazzu left guard Cody O'Connell.  The fourth-year junior is also in his first year of starting at Washington State. 

PFF actually scored O'Connell higher than any Pac-12 or Power 5 offensive lineman on PFF's scale for Week Three, with an 86.5.
