Trevor Knight is going to have a hard time in the NFL.
The Houston Texans ended up working out Texas A&M quarterback Trevor Knight at their local prospect workout this past Saturday.
Knight threw for 2,432 yards, 19 touchdowns and seven interceptions along with 614 yards and 10 touchdowns on the ground this past season.
Knight finished his college career with 5,856 yards passing, 44 touchdowns and 26 interceptions.
Knight ran an impressive 4.54 forty-yard dash and is known for his athleticism.
While Knight has the speed and quickness to terrorize opposing defenses there are a lot of questions about his accuracy and has a long throwing motion.
Knight’s throwing motion alone will make it very hard for him to succeed in the NFL. The game is way too fast at the next level for him to take his time getting the ball out. It will lead to sacks as well as interceptions, since cornerbacks will have more time to jump all over his passes.

As of right now it would be a surprise if Knight is able to make an NFL roster. If he wants to play at the next level he may have to change positions.
Standing a 6-feet-1, and weighing 219 pounds, Knight could try and make an NFL team as a slot wide receiver.
If the Texans to add Knight to their roster it will likely be as an undrafted free agent. I don’t see him getting drafted.
