He started 17 of his 45 games at Nebraska. The 6-2, 245-pound Dillard started nine games at weak-side linebacker and another seven at middle linebacker. He recorded 173 tackles (90 solo) with 3.5 sacks and 15 stops for losses.
Dillard is known as a player that elevated his game during his senior season. He's a powerful and physical hitter that is a solid tackler and has a good burst on blitzes to the quarterback. Dillard was scouted as a tough physical player, but only a marginal athlete.
Considering there are not a whole lot of players on the depth chart at MLB right now, he's in good shape to make an instant impact if he's able.
