    Well good luck to him. I guess this is a financial decision because he really needed another good year to attract a higher draft status. Injuries have hurt him and poor coaching and a lack of discipline last year pretty much relegated him to back up status.

    Honestly, I'll be surprised if he's drafted.

    Too bad for him. I think he could have put up big numbers under Bielema's system and style of play. Although, I do think he will be drafted, but in the later rounds.

    Looks like a longshot, but best wishes. Who could these other juniors be??

    Williams beat him out, go and take a chance on scoring some dough...

    I like the picture though. Check out the Razorback ball boy taking off down the sidelines as Davis goes by!

    If he wows at the combine, that will help a lot. But with, I think, 2 knee blowouts & a mediocre year after one of them, unless he has a huge combine and/or individual workout, he'll be an undrafted FA. He'll get his chance, though, but where will hinge on the combine or workouts.

    Knile was a fantastic ambassador of the entire program. Stand up and applaud him, what he has done and how he has represented the school. #7 always has a place on the Hill

    Knile will do great. He has endured all types of injuries and B. Petrino fall out. I wish him great success and only wish he would have been able to excell this year. Pretty hard with the cards that he was dealing with. He deserves a great career in the NFL and I feel sure he will have it. God bless and I wish him great success.
