2012 Outlook: Super Sleeper (high risk/potential)Last updated on Aug-17-2012 by Rob Warner
The Vikings selected their 2nd Arkansas WR when they nabbed Childs with a 4th round pick in April's 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 has the potential to see some snaps on the outside as a rookie and has the size to emerge as a red zone threat. Monitor training camp reports as he has big time sleeper potential if he proves to be healthy.
UPDATE: Childs tore up both knees and his season is over before it started. The oft injured WR might never play a snap in the NFL.
