Pos: 
Two-year starter who finished with 15 receptions for 284 yards and averaged just under 19 yards per catch as a junior. Incredibly athletic tight end with a large upside. Fluid, easily adjusts and nicely tracks the pass in the air to make some incredible grabs. Displays the ability to split the seam and get downfield. Plays with balance. Solid special-teams player who does a good job on return units.
Neg: 
Was never a big part of the passing offense for Mississippi. Drops some catchable throws on occasion. Rarely asked to block.
Analysis: 
Knox is a raw talent with limited playing experience, but he has huge upside. He has the ability to grow into a No. 1 tight end at the next level, but it may take a while for him to get to that point.
