Dawson Knox Playing on Friday!

Recommended Posts

He's definitely on a snap count.  I'm guessing a couple of full drives or the equivalent.

With all due respect to Mr. D’Arcy, that’s straight up sacrilege dismissing Stan Gable like that. 

 

Gable is easily top three of the nerd bullying jock archetype of the 80’s. 

 

First obviously being Johnny Lawrence of the cobra kai. 

 

Maybe top five since Ogre has to be up there too. 

 

 

Right I don't know if you can use Revenge of the Nerds villains at least half of them ended up on the side of the protagonist later on.

I feel like this guy is going to be the next draft / training camp hero that does nothing. Sincerely hope I’m wrong but I’m just not ready to believe that a guy that never scored a TD in college is all of a sudden going to be some game changer in the passing game.

i would never, ever disparage the name of stan gable.  he had moxie for bullie.  he wasn't straight muscle like the brother from weird science, but rather knew the art of making someone's life terrible.

   Ogre (Donald Gibb) used to spend a lot of time in LV and would share a brew with fans upon occasion.  He used to do a lot of henchman roles on shows like the A Team.

What if he's not as good as Sweeney? This board will explode.

 

no one will care and one preseason game wont determine that.

 

the only thing that matters is a winning season and whoever it takes is irrelevant.

Hope they run some sets with him and Sweeney on the field at the same time and send them both out on routes

I hope you’re wrong.  Beane has done a pretty good job drafting in his brief tenure.  I’d like to think they spotted something with this kid, and he was just grossly underutilized in college.  The way they went up to get him in the 3rd (plus reports from mini camps) gives me more confidence that this kid will be good.

I'd be perfectly fine with it because the way I see it, they are both going to be good pro's in this league.

 

I think they both have really good potential in being true #1 TE's in this league.

I'm eager to see how he does.  That photo, though -- sure doesn't look like a TE to me.  Gronk has more muscles in one arm than he does in both.

He did 16 reps on the bench press at the combine.  Hock had 17 🤷‍♂️

 

He had the 2nd best 3 cone time (7.12) and an impressive vertical (34.5). Also ran 4.59 40 at his pro day which would put him 3rd among TE’s behind Fant and Caleb Wilson.

 

He’s a gifted athlete.  I’d say average strength for his position with above average athleticism.  Can he play though?  Beane must think he can....

I think Dawson Knox is going to be an excellent player for the Bills for years...

But it's hard to think of a name that makes me want to punch a guy in the face more than "Dawson Knox". Sounds like a prep school villain from an 80s movie.

Image result for 80s movie villain

 

Dawson “Stan Gable” Knox supposedly hates NERRRRDS!!!!!!!!!

It’s not his fault he had a couple NFL WR’s on the team and a so-so QB. If they had thrown to him more, who knows where he might have been drafted?

I hope I am too. And I have a ton of faith in Beane & co they way they’ve re-tooled this team, but can’t hit on them all. I can get on board with “under utilized” in college but his lack of production is really jaw dropping. I mean for a skill position player who was actually on the field to never score a TD is just hard to comprehend. I’ll hope to be pleasantly surprised.
