Knight had the Aggies rolling in 2016, winning seven of eight games to start the year. However, he injured his throwing shoulder against Mississippi State and the team finished at 8-5. For the year, Knight completed just 53.3 percent of his passes for 2,432 yards, 19 touchdowns, and seven interceptions. He was the team's second-leading rusher as well, with 614 yards and 10 scores on 102 carries. Knight transferred from Oklahoma as a graduate student after the 2015 season (22-40, 305 yards, two TDs in six games), as two-time Heisman Trophy finalist Baker Mayfield had a grip on the starting job there. In 2014, Knight not only started 10 games (56.6 completion pct, 2,300 yards, 14 TDs, 12 INTs; 339 yards, five TDs rushing) but was a Wuerffel Trophy finalist for his academic and athletic achievements. He sat out three games, however, after suffering transient quadriplegia (a stinger that affects both sides of the body) against Baylor. The four-star recruit from San Antonio actually started five times as a true freshman (59.0 completion pct, 819 yards, nine TDs, five INTs; 445 yards, two TDs rushing).
Looks the part with a muscular, athletic build. Has the ability to hurt teams with his legs or extend plays outside of the pocket before striking downfield. May possess packaged play potential with zone-read capabilities on short yardage. Able to generate velocity on intermediate throws. Kept a clean sheet on his short passing attempts with 10 touchdowns and no interceptions.
One of the least accurate starting quarterbacks in college last season. Operates in the pocket with an excessively wide base as a passer. Has an elongated pitcher's windup and his arm slot drops down slightly below a three-quarter release. Location of his throws is a coin-flipper from snap to snap. Struggles mightily to attack outside the hashes. Lacks anticipation as a passer and allows defensive backs to close out throwing windows.
Knight is a tough guy and a very capable runner, but he's never thrown with any functional accuracy and he doesn't have the anticipation and delivery quickness necessary. Knight is a longshot to make an NFL roster.
