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.

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