Dawson was always a project. 

 

His college stats:

And his 2 years with the Bills:

There can't be many starting TEs who, in 2 NFL seasons of posting pedestrian stats, have exceeded the final 2 years of their collegiate production.

It was interesting to hear Q. Morris say that being a tight end was similar to the QB position in that he needed know the responsibilities of the other offensive players on each play.

Let's hope he picks something up. It's hard to watch such mediocrity from someone with his athletic gifts.

throw him more passes and he catches more

I find it interesting that they will help the competition. I wonder how their teams feel about coaching your opponents?

I don't see any difference from any of the offseason camps run by other positions.   Didn't Jerry Rice start this trend, and it was an honor to be invited to train with him?

A lot of players work out with opposing team players. Been happening forever.

I see it as professionals dedicated to perfecting their craft and taking a step toward their future when their playing days are over. Many will become coaches somewhere.

It was actually Walter Payton.

Buffalo Bills looking for Dawson Knox, tight ends to 'elevate' in 2021
 

</snip>
 

He said Anderson works with several professional athletes, using things like touchpad challenges and a machine that shoots pingpong balls, making them curve (and more difficult to catch).
 

"I was with him every day for about six weeks or so," Knox said. "Some of the stuff was crazy. It would work your eyes in a way where you'd feel like you're almost hypnotized. I felt like my progress from my first day with him to my last day was pretty great."
 

</snip>
 

"I want to get to the point where I am that weapon for our team and Travis is the best in the league right now at what he does," Knox said. "But it just comes from watching film and getting on the field and starting to feel out some of the stuff that he can see pretty quickly. It's really not just running your route and being in the right spot. It's how well can you adjust on the fly? How well can you read coverages when the ball is snapped? Because defenses are so good at disguising coverages and safeties are moving around and linebackers are showing blitz and then they're dropping out.

"So it's just being able to catch on to some of those things, which I felt like I was able to do more and more as the year went on. ... I definitely feel confident that I'll be able to do that this year."

Until proven otherwise, this is the weakest position the Bills currently possess.  I’ve got no faith in the guy from Wyoming, and Sweeney is coming off illness and didn’t play last year. Even guys like Smith or Kroft would be upgrades.
