Bio: 
Three-year starter at right tackle who started all 25 games in 2015 and 2016. Started the final seven contests of his sophomore season. Earned AAC All-Academic honors each year from 2013 through 2015.
Pos: 
Giant offensive lineman best in a small area. Patient, makes great use of angles as well as body positioning and easily seals defenders from the action. Strong, turns defenders off the line run blocking and anchors in pass protection.
Neg: 
Lacks footwork off the edge and balance in motion. Does a bit of catching opponents rather than outright blocking. Gets tall out of his stance and isn’t a natural knee bender.
Analysis: 
Knappe is a size prospect who must improve his fundamentals to have any chance of making it out of minicamp.
