The Jaguars had targeted Jarett Dillard for quite a while, as they sent scouts to several of his games and met with him at the NFL Combine and attended his Pro Day. The 5'11", 185 lb. wideout was ultra-productive in the mostly defense-void Conference USA.
Scout.com NFL Draft Expert Chris Steuber weighed in with his opinion on Dillard—
Dillard is a reliable receiver who had a prolific collegiate career. He's undersized, but has great awareness and feel for the game. He has quick hands, which helps him get off the line and runs crisp routes. He catches the ball away from his body and doesn't allow too many to get in on him. He has great vision and is fast after the catch. He's tremendously athletic and is explosive.
As a senior, Dillard caught 87 passes for 1,310 yards and 20 touchdowns, and is the NCAA all-time leader in touchdown receptions with 59. Dillard is a two-time Biletnikoff Award finalist and a two-time All-American as he was one of the most productive receivers in NCAA history.
The Jaguars now have a set of very young, speedy wide receivers for David Garrard to throw to, as well as a veteran to mentor them in Torry Holt.
