    Just listened to johnny know in an interview, he said he ran an unofficial 4.25.
    Johnny Knox (02/27/09)
    his interview is at the bottom of the interviews, very last podcast, we have got to get this player in the draft. Like Hostile likes Duke Robinson and I do too, this is one player i really like.

    I just wish the guy was a inch taller and not so slim. Love the raw talent but he makes me nervous.

    Put him at Punt return and kickoffs..anyone know if we at least talked to the guy? His speed alone will shoot him up the rounds.

    Knox's hands and adjustments to the ball in flight are even better than his straight line speed - our video was shot in winds with gusts up to 30-40 mph, but you cant tell because of his adjustments - very Welker-esque. Danny Amendola did that at the Texas Vs The Nation practices last year, too.

    Welcome to the board RS!! Your insight & observations on these players are going to be in high demand. Welker-esque hands AND world class speed certainly have me interested.

    thats why i like him, he adjusts to the flight of the ball extrememely well
    cowboys had a player like that way back during late 70's and early 80's tony hill

    thats why i want this kid, he is hungry too

    Well the guy is bigger and faster than Desean Jackson.

    I'd love for us to open the roster up for the type of player we were hoping for in Skyler Green.

    Not sure that Knox fits that description. Have been reading up on him more and some of his negative tendencies include running backwards or sideways when returning punts. He is more natural/physical as a receiver than as a returner.

    In either case, it could be correctable and I am going to add him to my board. You have convinced me Joe!

    Bat im not sure about his ability on punt and kickoffs, it maybe like some said that he isnt too good on that, but to a degree that is correctable.

    I just think with his adjustments to the football, and his deep speed, he can help the cowboys.

    Just like a guy that posted about the video links, he said something along the lines where knox adjusted to the football and caught the ball in 30 to 40 mph winds,etc.

    Johnny knox reminds me of a young Tony Hill, only slightly smaller, but does have deep speed. I think at one time, knox ran a 4.25 like i read it was posted.

    To me, thats what this team needs a wr with deep speed to stretch the field. I would be happy with knox or mike thomas. Only thing im wary of with thomas, he is real short, even shorter than johnny knox, not sure how he would hold up at wr.

    I would take either in the 5th. Knox actually reminds me of Oakland's Johnny Lee Higgins (except Knox has better hands & Higgins played more explosively_even tho Knox has greater timed speed). LOL, I guess he doesn't remind me of Higgins after all. They do have similar body types I guess.


    Thomas is short, but he is thick. Kind of reminds me of Kevin Williams.

    Knox kind of reminds me of Santonio Holmes

    same body type, same speed, measurables are pretty much the same, although Holmes' body control is a bit better

    thats a good analysis of knox comparing him with holmes

    another way to look at knox, i dont think he has the red flags that holmes had either

    so thats a plus
