Report: Davis opts out of last year at Arkansas for NFL draft

The SportsXchange

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.
