Biography: Two-year starter who led Minnesota in rushing as a senior with career-best numbers of 51 receptions/760 yards/4 TDs. Junior totals included 46/705/10.
Positives: Well-built possession receiver who's been consistent the past two years. Comes back to the ball out of breaks, extends his hands and consistently makes the reception away from his frame. Plays with good body control. Effectively finds the soft spot in the defense.
Negatives: One-speed receiver who does not get separation down the field or show a second gear. Tends to slow into pass routes.
Analysis: McKnight has done well the past two years on an inconsistent Minnesota offense and could be the fifth receiver for a West Coast offense.
