The Kansas City Chiefs selected Arkansas Razorbacks running back Knile Davis with their third-round pick of the 2013 NFL Draft (96th overall). Davis has the size and speed (6’0, 227, 4.37) to be able to contribute his rookie season. However, with fellow RB Jamaal Charles the workhorse of the offense, Davis could give Charles a breather while providing some power running in combination with Charles’ explosiveness in the open field. Andy Reid and the coaching staff are excited about the possibilities that Davis brings to the table. The rookie running back talks about what he has learned in his first OTA. “Just little things like keeping my arms pumping, he [ RB coach Eric Bieniemy] calls it ‘arm in the square’ because I had a tendency, when I first got here, to drop my arms and I would slow down, but he’s shown me little techniques to help me get out of my cut, run faster, how to stretch the field and showing me the different concepts of why I’m doing it; not only did he tell me the detail and correct it, but he let me know why I’m doing it and I put it all together. The NFL is big on knowing what you need to do and knowing why," Davis said, via Reid Ferrin of KCChiefs.com. "The main thing to me is just learning everything, because when you know what you’re doing, the game slows down on its own and you can focus in on what you need to do. The small part that I do have in the offense, I just want to get that right. I don’t want to make any critical mistakes. I just want to do my part and help the team in any way I can this year."
