Playing a position where blocking and pass catching is not easy , but if you paid attention to the Southern Jaguars you would see a Big guy in number 42 who made it look managable. Dillon Beard and coach Dawson Odums jaguars offense amassed over 23 hundred yards in the air this season and 000 of those yards belong to the 6’2″ Senior Tight End from Baton Rouge. Beard was ranked 10th in the conference in receiving yards per game (40.2) amongst wide receivers and remember he played tight end.
Scouts, Coaches, and GMs, here are the reasons why you should pay attention to 2018 Prospect, Dillon Beard (@TeamKingDilly), a TE from @SouthernU_FB! #2018Prospect#NFLDraft#NFL#CFL#GoJags#SUJags#Football

The Louisiana native looked very good in the third game of the season despite the loss ( 48-31 to Alcorn State). Beard hauled in 5 receptions for 37 yards and he followed that performace up with 3 catches in the 31-14 win Fort Valley State. But his big Games came against in two wins late in October and in the firs week of November.

Big number 42 and his performance this past season was an intrical part of Southern University’s 7 wins and 4 losses. Don’t be surprised if you see him on Sundays next season.
