MLB Phillip Dillard Scouting Report

MLB Phillip Dillard, Nebraska
Pos. Rank: 8 Grade: 6th Round Height: 6-0 1/2 Weight: 245 40: 4.70 Year: 5-Sr.

The Good: Tough, run-defending two down linebacker who gives effort until the whistle blows. Resilient, shows good head for the ball in run defense and rarely off his feet. Flows well to the action laterally, effectively uses his hands to protect himself and goes hard. Remains disciplined with assignments and shows a lot of quickness in the box.

The Bad: Struggles moving in reverse and displays minimal skills in coverage. Does a lot of face guarding and gets beaten by tight ends.

The Verdict: Dillard improved his game significantly last year as a senior and is a two-down linebacker best on the inside defending the run.
