Andre Dillard on the cusp of being a top 10 pick

Baseball’s losing streak is extended, plus other links.

NCAA Football: Oregon at Washington State James Snook-USA TODAY Sports

The calendar has turned to April which means it’s less than a month until Andre Dillard and potentially some other Cougars hear their names called at the 2019 NFL Draft.

If the latest projections are accurate, Dillard won’t have to wait long for his name to be called. Dillard has been cemented in the first round of mock drafts since the season ended, but he might be on the rise.

In his most recent mock draft, Chad Reuter of NFL.com projects Dillard as the No. 11 pick to Cincinnati. That makes Dillard the third offensive tackle drafted. Whether he goes this high remains to be seen, but at this point Dillard appears to be a lock for the first round.

Dillard’s status is fairly secure. The rest of the draft-eligible Cougs are less so. No other Cougs are included in Reuter’s four-round mock draft. Quarterback Gardner Minshew seems likely to be drafted as well, but his projections have ranged all the way from the third or fourth rounds to the sixth or seventh rounds.

In less than four weeks, we’ll know the fate of the next generation of NFL Cougs.
