Chiefs draft picks: Do you approve of the Knile Davis selection?

New, comments

The Kansas City Chiefs used their No. 96 overall pick in the 2013 NFL Draft on a running back out of Arkansas named Knile Davis. Do you agree with the selection.

USA TODAY Sports

The KC Chiefs had a third round compensatory pick for the loss of Brandon Carr last year. That picked turned into Knile Davis, running back out of Arkansas. Davis has big-time potential with the physical skill-sets you look for in a back, especially one that you're going to play alongside Jamaal Charles. Unfortunately, there's a reason he slipped to the third round and it's injuries.

Davis had a terrific 2010 season, earning all-SEC honors with 1,322 rushing yards on 204 carries and 13 touchdowns. He was hurt the next year -- an ankle injury, which Reid said they weren't concerned about -- costing him all of the 2011 season. In 2012 he struggled in what ended up being a mess of a season for Arkansas (thanks Bobby Petrino!).

This seems like your classic boom or bust pick.
