What a talent Knile Davis is. The former Arkansas Razorback stepped up huge for the Chiefs down the stretch of the season. He was a kid that the Chiefs more-or-less took a chance on. John Dorsey and Andy Reid, selected Davis in the third round, which might end up being a steal for the franchise when it’s all said and done.

Davis always had tremendous talent but had issues with injuries and fumbles throughout his college career. Knile saw limited time in the beginning because of what Jamaal Charles was accomplishing, but always showed promise. The first time we really saw anything from him was on his explosive, 104 yard kick off return for a touchdown against the Broncos in Arrowhead. Davis showed an excellent combination of size and speed.

In his first start against San Diego in week 17, Davis made the most of his opportunity. He carried the ball 27 times for 81 yards and 2 touchdowns, proving that he can be a viable option in the case of Jamaal Charles’ absence.

The next week, in Indianapolis for Wild Card Weekend, Davis was thrown into the starting role after Jamaal Charles suffered a concussion on the sixth play of the game. To say the least, Davis did a great job, carry the ball 18 times for 67 yards and 1 touchdown. He also had 7 receptions for 33 yards and a touchdown, proving that he can be a threat coming out of the backfield.

When Knile Davis is healthy, he has the potential to be one of the best players on the Chiefs roster. He definitely proved that he can be a perfect combination with Jamaal Charles in Andy Reid‘s offense. Davis finished the season strong, putting him at number two on the list for 2013. And now, drum roll please- the number one, not so obvious top ten Chief of 2013 is…
