A Smurf dynamo who looks like the future of the receiving corps, Johnny Knox came out of nowhere fast in 2009.
The Abilene Christian product burst on the field as a dual threat during his rookie year: he could return kicks (1 return for TD, 29 yd avg. ) and he could catch (45 rec. 5 TDs). He made it to the pro-bowl after his first season and offered a tiny redemption for the Jay Cutler trade after the Bears used Denver’s fifth-round pick to get him.
Now Knox is poised for a true breakout year working in the Mike Martz offense. The 6-foot, 190 pound receiver is the perfect fit for the high-flying schemes Martz employs.
On a team with no clear receiving star, Knox must solidify himself as the team’s No. 1 threat during the 2010 season.
