Refining his game
Knox has one glaring weakness and that is his dropped passes, all of the stats brought up earlier in the article back his struggles.
Other than the drops, Knox didn’t struggle in many other areas, he was relatively well rounded at the tight end position. His run blocking holds up quite well, and he runs solid routes to gain separation but just struggles to bring some catchable balls.
Bringing in only 56% of the passes thrown his way was good for third worse among tight ends, and due to his drop rate, it’s not the most surprising.
On a crucial third down versus the Ravens, Knox has a brutal drop here, he’s not even contested and blatantly drops it, a huge contrast to his one handed catch later in the game.
In the next clip Allen and Knox, have perfect timing on the back shoulder throw and it should be a simple catch, but once again Knox fails to come up with the relatively easy catch:
With more reps the second year pro should be able to shore his catching up, in the offseason there is no doubt that Knox has been working on his hands often. If the tight end from Ole Miss can refine his hands and make the routine catches regularly he has the potential to become a dangerous player for the Bills offense.
