2024 Exclusive Sneak Peek: Trey Knox

2024 Exclusive Sneak Peek: Trey Knox, TE South Carolina

Welcome to the Exclusive Sneak Peek: Trey Knox, a 4-star recruit from Murfreesboro, Tennessee, attending Blackman High School. After high school, Knox became a Razorback, committing to the University of Arkansas.

Knox’s college production doesn’t indicate anything special. Neither do his measurables. However, it is possible he can stick at the next level if he can build upon his solid pass blocking and continue to be a plus-option for quarterbacks in the receiving game. Knox is also a very good athlete. As a former national high jump champion in high school, Knox can high-point the football well and potentially develop into a nice red zone weapon.

Knox will need plenty of development at the next level, but it’s possible he can become a solid piece of an NFL offense in time.

Pre-Draft Analysis

Expected Draft Capital: 7th Round

Ideal Landing Spot: Tennessee Titans

The Titans have three 7th Round draft picks and not much behind Chigoziem Okonkwo at tight end. Drafting a later round dart throw at the position, especially one that could develop into a solid NFL contributor makes sense to provide some depth for a hopeful offense.

The Titans get a chance to work out Knox in a complementary role that could expand should he show promise. We know backup TE Josh Whyle offers the most value in the blocking game. So Knox can be a true receiving TE threat while Whyle works the blocking angles from inline and in the backfield. With Chig free to operate both inline and out wide, Kox offers the Titans more looks in 3-TE sets to continue to create mismatches for a developing Will Levis.

Knox gets the opportunity here to step on the field in year one as a package option. Learning behind both a great receiving TE and a great blocking TE can help him curate a more well-rounded skill set to bring to the table as he develops. Know is unlikely to start in the NFL right away anyway, so going to a young team with less pressure to win right away and building his game from the ground up offers him the best chance at long-term job security.
