|Knile Davis has a chance to emerge as the best running back in the SEC. (U.S. Presswire)|
Davis is an elite back who missed all of last season with a broken ankle. He rushed for 1,322 and 13 touchdowns in 2010, however, while averaging a stellar 6.5 yards per rush.
By all accounts, he is fully recovered and stronger and faster than ever. If he can build upon the production he had in 2010 and stay healthy, he'll emerge as the SEC's best back.
Playing for Arkansas gives him a little boost with voters, as the Hog running back tradition is still fresh in voters' minds -- remember that Darren McFadden was a two-time Heisman runner-up. The schedule gives Davis plenty of chances to impress voters as Alabama and LSU come to Fayetteville.
