"Standing 6'1", 239 pounds, Dillon clocked a 4.56 in the 40-yard dash and a 4.29 in the shuttle. His athleticism (38.3-inch jump) and strength (40-foot toss) were also on display, earning him SPARQ (speed, power, agility, reaction and quickness) ratings MVP honors for a second-straight year."

Freshman 2017.  1500+ yds Rushing

Sophomore 2018. 1100+ yds 

Junior. 2019.          1600+ yds

 

RB isn't high on my "Colts need" list, but A.J. Dillon is the perfect complimentary RB for this Team. Even at 249lbs he's still running a 4.5 40-yd and he doesn't get injured like Mack bc of his size.

I like Dillon, but he is what he is, a between the tackles RB with zero value to the passing game.

Idk about "zero value" in the passing game. He would be able to set up Play-action.

Remember Darius Leonard weight out of the draft was 234 and he was a beast and was everywhere. Now he drops down to 218 and bam injuries/

Yes...   I’m sure this is EXACTLY what the Colts would do.   Especially since they’ve never done it.   Not under Ballard.    I’m not even sure it happened under Grigson?

 

What RB have the Colts done this with? And suddenly that player lost weight and became injury prone?   Care to name someone.    Has this happened to ANY player regardless of position?  Name him.
 

I appreciate the season is disappointing and you’re not happy.  But please try not to make up stuff to vent with...

How did he wind up at Boston College?  

I honestly don't know. I was surprised that he was originally going to go to Michigan. I hadn't heard that before today.

Lol. What’s injuries has Leonard had besides the concussion. Leonard said he wanted to lose weight for this season because he felt the extra weight caused his ankle issue last year.

I'd put a huge grain of salt on what players say their weights are...it's an area where it's human nature to exaggerate, not only in sports but especially in sports.

 

I remembered how ridiculous it was when Pat Williams was listed a "317" lbs every season when reality is more like 340-380.

True, a lot of players stats show them to be one weight but in reality they're heavier. I do take it with a grain of salt. That said, A.J. himself was interviewed and stated he wanted to stay under 250lbs so it wouldn't affect his speed, so I'm willing to give his weight the benefit of the doubt since it stated by him.

Where is AJ Dillon being projected to go in the draft?  If we could get him with a mid to late round pick I'd be all for it.  However, we have more pressing needs to address in early rounds like defensive line, wide receiver and maybe a quarterback.

I'd prefer to have Zack Moss, RB, Utah for that between the tackles guy that has been used frequently as a receiver too.

Or JK Dobbins... Bigger version of Hines and can handle 20+ carries a game

From what I've seen, a lot of draft people have him in the 4th or 5th Rd. After the combine he will probably Rise. His size & speed will probably push him to bottom-2nd thru 3rd Rd, IMO...

    • It's almost as if playstyle and traits actually matter. It's almost as if surrounding talent matters, right? Shocking indeed. 
    • 9th by ESPN analytics.   Used Wins Above Replacement as their main metric.   Apologies,  it's a Premium story and I'm never quite sure what I'm allowed to reveal about stories like that.   Remember,  we started off drafting 26th...     and then traded back to 34th where we took Rock.   So, from there our class of Rock, Ben, Parris, Bobby, Khari, Tell and Speed did well enough to have us ranked 9th overall.   With his full staff in place,  we have a front office that seems to have a good idea of what they're doing.
    • It is funny how this "game manager" tag gets stuck on Fromm.  Last year Fromm threw 30 TDs, Love had 32.  Yet, Love is the playmaker and Fromm a game manager.  So this year Love throws 20 TDs and it is blamed on the changes in coaching and players around him.  Fromm through less TDs this year because they had a run orientated team.  But Fromm is a game manager.  Or he has great talent around him.  Couldn't that argument be made for Burrow?  I like your points here.  I like Fromm because he is decisive and accurate and go throw progressions well.  As much as people like to say the NFL is changing you need QBs to make plays out of the pocket, if you look at the final 4 QBs, Mahomes in the only one I would say would do that.  The players who succeed are ultimately the ones who make plays from the pocket.  It always has been that way and always will be that way.  Because it ultimately is about timing.  Guys like Watson make a few nice plays a game but are inconsistent.  I would rather have someone who is efficient and consistenly makes the right throws.
