    4.43 is the short Shuttle, not the 40

    Closer to 4.5 in the 40.

    Dillon played in the shadow of Karl Joseph at West Virginia, but Dillon produced two quality years to close out in his collegiate career. In 2015, he had 55 tackles with eight passes broken up, 7.5 tackles for a loss, and two interceptions. Dillon had 62 tackles, seven break ups and three interceptions in 2014.

    Ah, ok. But still... 28" vertical seems a bit weak.

    CBS Sports: A true box safety that thrives in run support and delivers a thump. Will help on special teams and fight for playing time. Good value here. (Grade: A+)

    ESPN: What he brings: Dillon is an outstanding run defender with the instincts and enough size to hold up when he lines up near the box. He's an above average tackler with good stopping power and the ability to make one-on-one tackles when he's the last line of defense. The former Mountaineer has enough range to cover the deep half of the field, but he's not a ball hawk and there are concerns about his ability to match up in man coverage. -- Steve Muench

    Rotoworld: Dillon (6'1/208) started three seasons at WVU, tallying 18 career tackles for loss with five interceptions and two forced fumbles. He earned second-team All-Big 12 as a senior. Dillon shined at the Combine -- running 4.53 with a 10-foot-1 broad jump -- but athleticism questions arose when he managed a 28-inch vertical and slow agility scores at the Mountaineers' Pro Day. A 'tweener safety, Dillon was an inefficient college tackler and isn't quite a free safety-type athlete. He'll have to earn initial playing time on special teams.

    I like this pick. 6'1 safety that can catch and hit. Hopefully we can help with his tackling
