Minneapolis, MN - The Minnesota Vikings are seemingly keeping things in "the family" through the 2012 NFL Draft. Loaded with players from Notre Dame & USC, the Vikings have added a second Razorback with the 134th overall selection of WR Greg Childs.
At 6'3" - 219 lbs, Childs is the big redzone threat that his teammate and Vikings 118th overall selection Jarius Wright is not. Still recovering from a bad Patella tendon injury in 2011, Childs caught 21 passes for 240 yards in his senior campaign. Childs potential shone brightly in his sophomore and junior seasons.
Before sufferring the injury in 2010, Childs was sitting with 659 receiving yards and 6 touchdowns. Couple that with 894 yards and 7 tds in 2009 and Childs is a significant threat added to the Vikings sub-par passing attack.
All in all, Childs finished his career at Arkansas with 133 catches for 2,066 yards and 15 TDs over the course of 44 appearances.
