    Jake Knott

    I haven't seen anybody say anything about him yet but when I got a chance to watch the game on Sunday, I was very impressed with how he moved out there. He covered some serious ground and I am very excited to see what kind of player he is going to be in a year or two. Wish we had more LB depth this year so he could have redshirted

    Re: Jake Knott

    He's a little small, but looked like he had good speed. I could see him being a quicker, but smaller Jesse Smith, which would be a pretty damn solid player.

    Speaking of that, has anyone else ever thought Jesse could be pretty effective lining up at DE from time to time?

    I just watched it on espn360 the next morning. Had a wedding the day before so I didn't get a chance to watch it

    As for Knott being smaller, I agree. But he has room to grow and I believe he has some good height. That is why a redshirt would have been huge for him.

    Knott is actually 2 inches taller than Jesse and they weigh the same. The chances of Knott moving to DE are much higher than Smith who is too short, small, and slow to move to DE.

    Re: Jake Knott

    When Knott was recruited the coaches said he had the hip movement of an upperclassman. Even tho he wasn't big name, he had more technique coming in than most of the other guys. Just let him build himself up physically and he will be a regular for his ISU career.

    Interesting. I guess it's just because he's thinner, less muscular or something that I thought he was smaller than Jesse.

    And maybe I'm wrong but I always thought that anyone who plays LB is fast enough to play DE. Even if they are slow at LB.

    Re: Jake Knott

    I thought that Jake looked really good out there. I saw his number on the screen quite a bit as I was wathing the 4th quarter. It was good to see Klein get that fumble recovery, also. I think we have a couple of guys that will be big contributors for the next few years.

    He's not going anywhere. Looked way more like a safety than a DE, he is a weak-side LB all the way.

    Re: Jake Knott

    Who knows. He could put on some weight and become a gamechanging DE for us. Something that we have been lacking since berryman.

    I would think that there are different types of quickness & speed for those two positions. DE you need the quick first step and first move, LB you need more flat-line speed to cover distance around the field.

    They have to be. We don't have too many others at LB.

    Re: Jake Knott

    He'll be fun to watch with AJ Klein the next 4 years. They're playing those two because they will likely start next year with Tuafoou and Lattimer going for the other spot.
