What does it really matter if he knows all the WR positions? I mean come on if thats your reasoning for saying he won't overtake Hester and Bennett then that is a terrible excuse. Knox clearly runs great routes, has amazing speed and above average hands. Added to the fact that unlike Hester he doesn't look afraid to go over the middle to make a catch (the TD pass he caught he knew he was going to get hit and still left his feet to ensure better body position to absorb the hit and make the catch at the same time). No way that Bennett holds this guy down, I mean your making Bennett out to be some super #1 here. What happened last year that Bennett was in 10 games but never even has one reception? What does that tell you? Who was there last year that isn't there this year that was holding Bennett back? Rashied Davis? Brandon Lloyd? Marty Booker? Come lets be serious Bennett had all the opportunity in the world last year to prove what hes trying to this year and he didn't get it done last year so whats going to make him get it done this year?
Knox WILL be the #1 Bears WR by mid-year without question, bare minimum. Bennett is a joke and people are just trying to feed the 'hes going to be the #1 because him and Cutler have a past'. One year together in COLLEGE ball doesn't A. create a bond between a WR/QB nor B. say that this difference this year is because of one year of experience together. Hester will be Knox out for the #1 option FARRRR before Bennett ever will.
