Greg Childs, WR, Vikings
2013 Outlook:Last updated on Jun-21-2013 by Rob Warner
The Vikings selected their 2nd Arkansas WR when they nabbed Childs with a 4th round pick in the 2012 draft. He has ideal size (6'3, 220), but injury concerns caused a draft day slide. Childs suffered a knee injury in October 2010 and never fully recovered during his senior 2011 season (only 21 catches for 240 yards). He led the Razorbacks in nearly every receiving category as a sophomore in 2009, finishing with 48 catches for 894 yards and seven touchdowns. His junior year was even more impressive as he had 46 catches for 659 yards before tearing the patella tendon in his right knee in the 8th game against Vanderbilt. He proved his health at a March 7 pro day by running a 4.41 forty and posting a vertical jump of 41 1/2 inches. Childs tore up both knees last offseason and his rookie year ended before it started. The oft injured WR could end up on the PUP list for 2013, but has shown some impressive progress this offseason despite the horrific injuries last season. The odds are strongly against Childs making an impact, but he was once viewed as 2nd/3rd round talent before the rash if injuries.
