Davis has both blazing speed and incredible strength demonstrated by the 4.33 40-yard dash he clocked being the fastest on the team and a 415 bench press along with a 570-pound squat while weighing a solid 226 pounds. His squat was higher than any of what was recorded for the offensive linemen and only one O-lineman posted a better bench press.
The star tailback is a definite preseason Heisman Trophy contender and will be by season end if his ankle holds up. Davis already demonstrated his physical prowess and appears to be mentally ready as well.
He recently tweeted:
The 2010 numbers could easily be duplicated or better in 2012. His running ability might be the last ingredient to make just the right recipe for a BCS National Championship contender especially since the Hogs only finished 81st in rushing last season without him. There are weapons in the passing game as well that can take pressure off him with quarterback Tyler Wilson and wide receiver Cobi Hamilton in the lineup.
Despite testing out some impressive numbers this Spring and his previous experience on the field, we all know none of that matters until the season begins. Hog fans will be cringing the first time there is a big hit on Davis when his true test comes on the playing field this September. Hopefully for the Razorbacks and college football, the stud running back will have an iron man season in 2012, because it would be an exciting show for all fans to watch.
