The Buffalo Bills have traded two fourth-round picks in the 2019 NFL Draft to move back into round three. With the 96th pick that they acquired from Washington, the Bills selected tight end Dawson Knox from Ole Miss.

Knox, 22, had an underwhelming college career from a statistical perspective, catching only 39 passes for 605 yards and zero touchdowns in his career with the Rebels. A former high school quarterback, Knox worked his way into Ole Miss’ starting tight-end spot, although he was overshadowed in the passing game by teammates D.K. Metcalf, DeMarkus Lodge, and A.J. Brown.

Knox is a stout tight end, standing at 6’4” and weighing 257 lbs. He is a solid athlete whose potential outweighs his production at this point in his career. Lance Zierlein of projected him as a second-round pick, so the value is good for Buffalo at this spot. He will compete right away for reps with newcomer Tyler Kroft and incumbent tight end Jason Croom in Buffalo’s offense.
