Knile Davis Among Standouts On List Of Arkansas Spring Football Testing Numbers

Knile Davis is proud of the numbers he posted recently as Arkansas tested the speed and strength of players. He just wants the record to reflect those numbers could have been better.

“I was trying to get them to let me do more, but they cut me off,” Davis said. “So I'm just trying to do the best I can.”

Davis, according to numbers provided by the UA, posted the fastest 40-yard dash on the team. He clocked a 4.33.

A 415 bench press was good for fifth on the team. Davis’ 570-pound squat was third among Razorbacks.

Basically, the 6-foot-2, 226-pound running back runs as fast as the team’s wide receivers. He’s as strong as Razorback defensive tackles.

Not too bad for a guy who missed all of last year because of a broken left ankle.

Arkansas went through testing during the days leading up to the start of spring practice. Below are the top 10 marks in 40-yard dash, bench press and squat, courtesy the UA:

Good as those numbers for Davis and some of the other players are, is there a more impressive number than the 4.40 time in the 40-yard dash posted by kicker — !!third string kicker!! — Cameron Bryan?
