Dawson Knox Scouting Report

STRENGTHS: One look at Dawson Knox, and you will see someone who has rare athletic traits…his body control at the TE position is something to be seen…a very smart player who can run sophisticated routes with a high level of nuance…gets off the line of scrimmage rapidly…a high upside prospect…former QB…smart player…good hands…

WEAKNESSES: Dawson Knox is a below average blocker who has a long way to go if he wants to contend for an in-line role in the offense…plays with poor leverage and a weak lower half…his game as a whole is wildly inconsistent…needs to show the ability to play with punishment and physicality…Dawson Knox is nothing special after the catch…

COMP: Ian Thomas

OVERALL: Dawson Knox is going to be one of the more fascinating TEs heading into the 2019 NFL Draft. Limited production, mixed with a plus-athlete, his value could go either way. Knox certainly has the upside to get excited about, but understand, he is far away from a complete prospect. His draft stock is more volatile than most, ultimately I would expect to hear his name in the 2nd-3rd round of the 2019 NFL Draft.
