Joe McKnight   #22 RB

Height: 5-11   Weight: 205   Age: 26

Born: 4/16/1988 Kenner , LA

College: USC

Experience: 4th season

High School: John Curtis Christian HS [River Ridge, LA]









Draft 2010

Pick No.112

Selected By: New York Jets

Round: 4

Pick (Overall): 14 (112)

Pick Analysis: McKnight is an elusive ball carrier that knows how to set up his blockers and does not need a huge lane to run through. He enjoyed his first full season staying healthy in 2009 and declared early to take advantage of that. He finishes his runs off better than you?d expect for someone his size. He is not a power back but does know how to dip his pads to run through arm tackles and will attack tacklers with an explosive burst. He shows a good burst through the hole and while he has good speed to threaten deep he will get run down from behind at times. He can be an effective receiver both out in the flats as well as downfield.
