2013 NFL Draft Results: Knile Davis Highlights

The Kansas City Chiefs continued to load up on the offensive side of the football, selecting RB Knile Davis with their second pick in the 2013 NFL Draft.

Davis had his ups and downs at Arkansas. He got off to a fast start but then saw his career derailed by injuries and questionable ball security. At the NFL Scouting Combine, however, Davis was able to display his athleticism, running a 4.37 in the 40-yard dash.


Davis is a bruising back who has struggled with injuries since high school, lost his entire 2011 season due to a broken ankle, and failed to look like the same player in 2012 as he was in 2010. In Indianapolis, Davis put together one of the best workouts of any prospect at the position, so a team might grow fond of his athletic upside. His power and burst in the open field make him tough to stop when all his parts are in working order; but this has proved to be a struggle for Davis.


Here are some highlights:

This kid sure is fast. He could be dangerous in Andy Reid’s system.

    VERY decisive with the football in his hands. He’s a North-South guy and will hit the hole quickly. I’m warming up to this pick.

    • Suzi Conger

      Hi Stacy…. he’s pretty impressive when healthy; I am concerned that his prior health/injuries issues might be chronic….well, time will tell..

      • Stacy D. Smith

        That’s saying a lot though. Davis’ injuries have been an issue since high school. The kid’s a pure athlete though. His measurables are off the charts.

  • ArrowFan

    He looks to big and to fast what a waste of a pick!

  • Chief Hokie

    Holy shitaki this kid is explosive. I’m lovin this pick except for that RB is not a pressing need. I already think we have something special in cyrus gray, but why the hell not add another RB, we are the chiefs!

      cyrus is a nice runner, but he isn’t a power guy, this kid can run the ball with power, he may also have that incredible game breaking ability, but he can be put in on 3rd and 1 and knife through for the yardage.

      lot of people claiming KC didn’t need a HB, Im not understanding that thought process. if Charles goes down, or even needs a break or a play off, people are OK using gray who is a 6th rd pick with promise who didn’t play last year over the man Im about to mention, the terrible Shaun Draughn.
      now the team needs a starting ILB

    Andy Reid needs to learn how to use a RB first. He had McCoy and opted to throw with Vick.
