When the Green Bay Packers drafted Boston College's AJ Dillon in the 2020 NFL Draft, a lot of fans questioned the decision, especially after they saw starting running back Aaron Jones just finish a career year.
However, Jones is approaching the end of his current contract, and with the short shelf life of NFL running backs, it's always wise to have the next man up ready to go at all times. With the questions around COVID surely to affect the NFL season, that adds further need for depth at the spot.
And when Packers fans get a glimpse of the athleticism of Dillon, it might alleviate their concerns.
Jumping six feet in the air is no easy feat, especially for a running back with such a low center of gravity. If Dillon can showcase this stuff on the field he could end up being a dangerous piece for the Packers during his rookie season.
