Dawson Knox, a talented tight end for the Rebs, was picked in the 3rd round by the Buffalo Bills. The Bills used the 96th overall pick on Knox to bring him up to Buffalo, where he’ll be catching passes from Josh Allen for the foreseeable future.
At Ole Miss, Dawson amassed 605 career yards with the Rebels. He only compiled 39 receptions, so, the 6-foot-4, 250-pound Knox is most certainly a pick based on his potential at the next level more than his actual, tangible performances in college.
Knox joins the likes of Greg Little, A.J. Brown and D.K. Metcalf as Rebel players to be drafted on Friday night.
Best of luck to Dawson Knox with the Buffalo Bills!
