Knile Davis enters the 2012 season as the forgotten man.

After leading all SEC running backs in rushing in 2010 with 1,322 yards, which was 125 more than South Carolina's Marcus Lattimore gained that season, Davis is being overshadowed by Lattimore headed into the 2012 season.

The two stars share more than preseason first-team All-SEC designation. Lattimore tore his ACL midway through the 2011 season, and Davis sat the entire campaign after fracturing his ankle during fall camp.

Davis wasn't cleared for contact during spring practice, but he claimed that he was at "100 percent" during his visit with the media at SEC Media Days.

There now is visual proof.

A video posted by the imitable Jordan Stuckey on TheSportsDumpster.com shows Davis reportedly squatting 600 pounds. 

How legit is the video?

Davis himself boasted about the accomplishment on Twitter on Thursday.

Arkansas' success in 2012 hinges on its ability to keep some pressure off quarterback Tyler Wilson, and if Davis can return to form, that will go a long way toward keeping Wilson off his back.

This has to make Hog fans smile.
