Draft Scout Snapshot:HIGH RISER: DS Rating on 9/1/09: #24 ILB, #505/750 Overall, Projected Rd: 2009 Senior Bowl Invite/Add…2007: Played in all 12 games at the MIKE linebacker spot in 2007, splitting time with senior Corey McKeon...started games against Missouri and Oklahoma State and finished the year with 37 tackles, including 22 solo stops...2006: Appeared ready for a breakthrough in 2006, but he suffered a knee injury in the season opener and was lost for the year...2005: Played in 11 games as a true freshman in 2005, including a start against Missouri, and finished with 11 tackles.
Post-Draft Outlook:BEST PICK: Linebacker Phillip Dillard -- Dillard probably won't be the starting middle linebacker this year, but he has a lot of upside from both an athletic and mental grasp of the game, and could ultimately earn some snaps if the winner of the Gerris Wilkinson-Jonathan Goff battle doesn't pan out.
A closer look at the Giants' picks: Round 4/115 -- Phillip Dillard, LB, 6-0, 245, Nebraska: Dillard has the ability to blossom into a full-time middle linebacker despite being limited to Nebraska's nickel and dime packages as the middle linebacker. - by The Sports Xchange
