Drawing comparisons to James Conner of the Pittsburgh Steelers, Dillon is built like a small bus but has the elusiveness and agility to succeed in the NFL.
You can never have too many offensive linemen in the NFL these days, especially when newly acquired starter Halapoulivaati Vaitai is relatively unproven as a starting right tackle.
At the very least, Herron provides the Lions with depth and competition for Tyrell Crosby. The former team captain for the Demon Deacons lined up at left tackle in 12 of 13 games last season and got a chance to work with Lions’ coaches at the Senior Bowl.
Herron possesses flexibility, agility and solid footwork on the line. And he comes from a family of college basketball players, so perhaps he could post up on a tackle roll-out and find the end zone at some point in his NFL career.
