Buffalo Bills: 5 players with the most to gain in 2020
By Daniel Bruce
Dawson Knox was relatively raw heading into his rookie season and showed that with his inconsistent hands, but also showed some tools that could make him the star tight end the Bills have been craving.
Knox only had 15 receptions in his final season at Ole Miss, which was more because of the scheme and not because of the lack of talent Knox had, which was evident in his rookie season. He finished his rookie season with 388 yards and two touchdowns in his first season, and got stronger as the year went on.
Knox also has a great stiff arm which makes him hard to tackle in the open field, along with his above average speed for a tight end, which is showcased here versus the Cincinnati Bengals:
With Knox being the third option on the offense last season behind John Brown and Cole Beasley, the addition of Stefon Diggs moves Knox to fourth and could result in more space for Knox to make plays. If Knox can improve his hands and become a reliable target for Josh Allen, I can see Knox surpassing 500 yards this season, another season in the league should work wonders for Knox.
Dawson Knox even discussed in an interview with Dan Fetes at 13WHAM what it means to hear his teammates like John Brown discuss the potential he has entering his second season.
