Storming the SEC in his first season as a starter in 2010, Knile Davis exploded for 1,322 yards rushing and 13 touchdowns, as well as 19 catches for 136 yards and a lone receiving touchdown. Handling over 200 touches without showing signs of wear and tear, but rather building momentum as the season went along, Davis flashed his workhorse skill set, elite physical tools, and well-rounded game as a pass catcher. Davis' instinctive and decisive running style, matched with patience to set up and cut off of blockers, allowed for success as both a perimeter and between-the-tackles runner.
When pressing the edge, Davis does an excellent job of locating the cutback lane, planting and accelerating off his cuts, and reaching the 2nd level. Possessing subtle elusiveness to not give tacklers an direct target to strike, Davis constantly shrugged off arm tacklers to and through the hole, accelerating out to the 2nd and 3rd levels of the defense for big plays. Physically, Davis is an elite talent, with plus coordination, fluidity as a runner, change of direction skills, and impressive lateral agility for a back his size. His size/speed combo and instincts as a runner, will make him a sought after commodity should he declare for the upcoming draft.
