08:17 AM ET 05.24 | With speed and power, there is a lot to like about 6-foot, 226-pound Arkansas RB Knile Davis. [If Davis is healthy] he could put himself in position to be the number one running back drafted in the 2013 NFL draft. Davis is a thick, compact runner with good lateral quickness when he gets up to full speed. And his combination of size, power and explosiveness makes him a bear to bring down in all areas of the game. ... [He has] the ability to break tackles on all areas of the field, run effectively inside because of his size, vision and burst, and he will create in the open field. Therefore, if healthy, Davis has the makings of a first round caliber back and a guy who should be able to carry the load for an NFL offense early on.

He's used to running against those vaunted SEC defenses so he'll think it's much easier when he gets to those wimpy NFLdefenses.

No mention of his knee rehab?

Davis and Lattimore will both be examples showing what good rehab (hopefully) can do. Good luck to both.

I thought the injury bug was chronic with him....if he's hurt every year, the big boys won't spend that much jack on him.

I have my fingers crossed with Justin Hunter this year. I hope that kid can stay healthy.

There is the problem a lot of them face in all sports there is always someone that is just as strong and much faster when you move up to a higher division.

He broke in ankle....no knee injury for Davis.

Still a big quesiton in my mind if he'll be 100% from the broken ankle, but that's easier to come back from than a knee injury, IMHO

Davis is mid second round pick at best, Lattimore will go in the first round.
