NFL Draft results: Knile Davis to the KC Chiefs in 3rd round

The Chiefs first round pick was used on offensive tackle Eric Fisher, their second round pick on quarterback Alex Smith, their first third round pick on tight end Travis Kelce and their second third round pick on Knile Davis, running back out of Arkansas.


The KC Chiefs have a partner for Jamaal Charles. The Chiefs selected Arkansas running back Knile Davis in the round (No. 96 overall) of the 2013 NFL Draft. The Chiefs have backup running back options on the roster like Cyrus Gray so Davis will step in and compete with them. But this is still Jamaal Charles' show.

Important: Knile Davis profile from Arkansas fans

Davis ran a 4.37 40-yard dash at the 2013 NFL Combine and benched 225 pounds an impressive 31 times. The Big Lead breaks down how that performance stacks up to other running backs.

The Chiefs used their No. 1 overall pick on offensive tackle Eric Fisher out of Central Michigan, which many people expected. He will likely play on the right side if Branden Albert remains on the team and the left side if Albert is gone. The Chiefs 2013 second round is in San Francisco (which the 49ers later traded) for the Alex Smith trade. Tight Travis Kelce out of Cincinnati was the Chiefs first pick of the third round. Kelce is a solid blocking tight end who should team with Anthony Fasano (and should make Tony Moeaki slightly worried).
