03/24/13 - 2013 Arkansas Pro Day: Arkansas hosted 29 NFL team representatives, including the Miami Dolphins quarterback coach and the Jacksonville Jaguars running back coach, on its pro day on Friday. Drills were run indoors on FieldTurf. Twenty-eight people participated in the pro day, 23 from Arkansas. Knile Davis, RB (5-11 1/4, 222) - He looked real good catching the ball. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com
03/16/13 - Arkansas RB Davis out to prove health, talent...Perhaps more than any of the workout participants, Davis is a wild card entering Friday's on-campus pro day and next month's NFL draft. The problem for the Texas native, though, is there's no way he can answer the one question everyone has. Can he stay healthy? "You can't prove that you're not going to get hurt," Davis said. "That's why I don't understand the injury-prone tag. You can't say someone's injury prone, because anyone on the field can get hurt. You can have a hot No. 1 pick, and he can get hurt, too. And then someone who's been hurt can never get hurt again. There's no way to prove it."
There's no way to fully shake the label, as the former first-team All-Southeastern Conference running back knows all too well - given an injury history that dates to high school. All Davis can do is prepare for auditions such as Friday, when he's expected to run routes and catch passes from Wilson, and hope for a chance. "I'm a realist; people have short memories," Davis said. "The media, coaches, it's `What have you done for me lately?' So, yeah, I definitely have something to prove. I have something to prove to myself that I can play at the next level." - AP Sports
12/14/12 - Arkansas junior running back Knile Davis will pass up his final year of eligibility to enter the 2013 NFL draft. Davis, a Texas native, will train in Dallas for pre-draft workouts at a facility owned by Olympic sprint champion Michael Johnson and will be represented by Mike Conley Sr., CollegeFootballNews.com reported Wednesday. After rushing for 1,322 yards and 13 touchdowns in 2010, Davis missed the following season after suffering an ankle injury in August 2011. This past season, Davis returned but struggled under a new coaching staff that took over following the Bobby Petrino scandal, rushing for 377 yards on 112 carries and two touchdowns as the Razorbacks went 4-8. Davis' 4.33-second speed in the 40-yard dash and his 6-foot, 226-pound frame make him a solid prospect in what is being considered a lean year for running backs in the draft. - The Sports Xchange
12/12/12 - Arkansas junior running back Knile Davis has decided to forego his remaining eligibility and enter the 2013 NFL Draft, according to Rich Cirminiello of CollegeFootballNews.com. After missing the entire 2011 season due to a broken ankle, Davis could have received another year of college eligibility in 2013, but has decided to go pro instead of returning to Fayetteville. He has hired Mike Conley Sr. to be his agent.
Davis was a First Team All-SEC performer in 2010, leading all conference running backs with 1,322 yards (6.5 yards per carry) and 13 touchdowns. After sitting out the 2011 season rehabbing his ankle injury, he returned in 2012 but didn't look the same, finishing with just 377 yards on 112 carries (3.4 average) and two touchdowns.
Davis worked his tail off to return from injury, but he ran too hesitant and indecisive this past season, including issues with ball security. He was caught stopping his feet too much, routinely looking to bounce runs outside and not running with much conviction. But NFL scouts are hopeful he can return to his 2010 form. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
