Cameron Dillard is a redshirt freshman offensive lineman. Hailing from Canton, Michigan, Dillard did not see any playing time in 2013 and has four years of eligibility remaining.
Dillard earned the Most Valuable Defensive Scout Team Award last season from the coaching staff. He is 6’4” and 297 pounds, an ideal size to help protect Jeff Driskel and the Florida backfield.
The Florida Gators offensive line could have a three or four year starter for the future with Dillard. He has the chance to get some playing time this year with a redshirt season under his belt. With new offensive coordinator Kurt Roper changing schemes once again for the Florida program, Dillard is in the perfect situation. He knows the college atmosphere and pace and can be one of the anchors to help implement Roper’s tactics.
Although he is most likely to have to wait for a chance to play, learning the system from the sideline benefits a lot of players. Of course there are upper classmen ahead of him on the depth chart, but Dillard wanted to be a Gator since he was a kid and has the passion needed to excel on the field when his time comes.
