KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP)

The Kansas City Chiefs drafted Arkansas running back Knile Davis with a compensatory pick in the third round Friday night, grabbing a bulldozer to take some of the load off Jamaal Charles.

Davis has a nice blend of size and speed, resulting in comparisons to former Razorbacks star Darren McFadden. But the knock on Davis - and one of the big reasons he fell late into the third round - is that he's dealt with a number of injuries throughout his career.

He's struggled with ankle trouble going back to high school.

The Chiefs drafted offensive tackle Eric Fisher first overall Thursday night, then had to wait until the first pick of the third round before selecting again. They took Cincinnati tight end Travis Kelce with that choice Friday night.
