McKnight as an excellent build for an inside/slot WR, he is great in space and after the catch and struggles in pass protection. Any decent coaching staff would have made this move a long time ago. Instead we have arguably our best "playmaker", after kerley, playing special teams only aside from 2 carries a game.
I have a hard time assuming that he is going to be able to make an impact at WR. Who knows if he can even run routes let alone learn the plays? I would rather them let him get more experience at RB.
I think this will be a one game thing like the move to CB was.
I just feel bad for the kid. We are awful at RB and yet they will not give him a chance. It is like a slap in the face.
