Brandon Knight went undrafted in the NFL for a reason. Knight didn’t have the ideal size or length great tackles have to transition to the next level. Moving him inside was likely, and at guard his lack of size and length is neutralized some what, but Knight didn’t have the strength that is typical of most great OGs either.
Knight has the requisite athleticism, playing tight end as a freshman at Indiana. This athleticism and his intelligence made even the center position possible for Knight, but he lacked experience snapping the ball. With no real position Knight could circle as his own at the NFL level, a good college RT didn’t get his name called in the NFL Draft. Has Knight earned a spot on the 2021 Dallas Cowboys 53-man roster with his play the last two seasons though? If he has, at what position would be better for him and the team, OT, or OG?
Next up in the 2021 Cowboys player profile countdown, No. 69 Brandon Knight.
