Demitri Knowles, WR/KR, Virginia Tech – 2016

Postseason events: Tropic Bowl.

Positives: Was a redshirt senior with a lot of experience. Runs with above-average speed and adequate quickness. His hands are all right, though inconsistent. Fair vision and effort after the catch. Not easy to bring down, and can drag tacklers to the end zone. Fair downfield blocker. Makes adequate decisions on kick returns.

Negatives: Inconsistent hands – can extend for passes away from his body pretty well at times, but will also drop some where he has to extend. Needs more effort on off target passes. Runs with long strides that limit his ability to make crisp movements, and he won’t stay squared when making cuts – slipping often. This deficiency also extends to his route running, and he isn’t very deceptive in his routes. A bit of a lazy stem on hitch routes. Has to dial down a lot to stop his momentum and change directions. Doesn’t explode out of his breaks. Fair balance after contact. A little slow to make decisions on the move on kick returns.

Projection: Undrafted free agent.
