2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:

Greg Childs, WR, Arkansas

Childs was once thought of as a future first-round draft choice in the NFL, but his career at Arkansas never took off. His best years--and they were productive--came as a sophomore and junior. In 2009 he caught 48 passes for 897 yards and seven touchdowns. In 2010 he made 46 receptions for 659 yards and six scores. Near the end of his junior campaign (which was already stalled by an ankle injury), Childs suffered a torn ACL and he was never the same. As a senior he played in just nine games and had 21 catches for 240 yards and no touchdowns.

When healthy, Childs is a serious talent. The Warren, AR native has great size at 6'3'' and 217 pounds. As his statistics from the two healthy campaigns suggest, he is a real red-zone force. Childs generally runs in the 4.5s of the 40-yard dash and he has been clocked as fast as 4.45 from that distance. He has good hands and an ability to make plays after the catch. The problem is that Childs does not have elite speed and the injury history will not help him in that department. Childs is not a lock to get drafted, but he has to be worth the risk based on his potential and he could help himself at the combine.
