This upcoming NFL season is a giant one for tight finish Dawson Knox.
The No. 1 in his place group on the Payments’ roster, Knox has to have marketing campaign if he needs to stay round in Buffalo for the lengthy haul. Or no less than, as a starter.
This offseason the Payments, to this point, opted to not exchange him. He’ll be rolled again on the market in 2021. Getting into the third yr of his professional profession, Buffalo may look to get extra manufacturing out of the tight finish spot if Knox doesn’t show to be a starting-caliber participant.
If one was to ask Bleacher Report how Knox will fare on this dialogue subsequent season, it’s not outlook for him. B/R just lately pegged one participant on every NFL crew’s roster that may disappoint. Knox was the choose for the Payments:
When the Buffalo Payments used a third-round choose on former Mississippi tight finish Dawson Knox within the 2019 draft, they seemingly envisioned getting a dependable pass-catcher out of the choice. Sadly, whereas Knox has proven some playmaking capacity, reliability has not been his best power.
Knox has simply 676 receiving yards and 5 touchdowns by way of two seasons, regardless of enjoying with certainly one of final yr’s most prolific quarterbacks in Josh Allen. Whereas it could be straightforward responsible his goal share for the shortage of manufacturing—the Payments are loaded at broad receiver—Knox has to bear a lot of the blame.
Any onlooker from western New York is aware of the difficulty with Knox. The issue is his fingers within the NFL. Drops have been an issue.
Beforehand a quarterback in highschool, Knox moved to tight finish in school and performed in a proficient offense which included the likes of DK Metcalf. Maybe an absence of touches again then has held again his growth as a move catcher, however he nonetheless has had three NFL seasons to get it going and he hasn’t.
Projecting ahead to subsequent offseason, the Payments could possibly be able to make use of a excessive draft choose or spend on a decent finish in free company if the salary cap goes up. That may simply be the ultimate piece to place Buffalo’s offense excessive as nicely.
