While showcasing his immense talent during the 2019 season, Dawson Knox wasn’t without his issues. He has to become a more reliable pass catcher to become the undisputed starter at tight end for the Buffalo Bills.
Coming into his first NFL season, Dawson Knox was seen as a raw prospect at tight end. However, now after a full season in the pros, the expectations are higher than most would have expected for the Buffalo Bills tight end.
He has all the makings of a prototypical new age tight end, at 6’4″ and just over 250 pounds, he looks the part. Knox is also very fleet of foot and can beat safeties or linebackers down the seam.
At Ole Miss, the pass catcher was not a huge aspect of their offense and didn’t even catch a touchdown his whole college career. He finished his college career with just over 600 yards in 18 career games with Ole Miss, which is not great in any sense.
The exciting thing about Knox is that he showed many flashes last season when he was still pretty raw in the receiving game but now with a full offseason to keep working, he has the potential to improve drastically.
