Originally posted by Travisty13:I know OTC has mention Greg Childs numerous times as a guy we should keep an eye on in the later rounds (which I agree. He was Ark.'s #1 WR before injuries got the best of him.) But he has heck of a pro-day. He ran the 40-yard dash in 4.40 and 4.39 seconds, had a 40 1/2-inch vertical jump, and a 10-foot-7 broad jump. Also impressed a lot of scouts in the positional workouts. I hope we go Hill in the 1st and snag someone like Childs later in the draft. We need as many big (Childs is 6'3), fast WRs as we can get imo. He also had huge hands (10 1/8''). With his size and speed, he'd be a great addition later the draft. I'm sick of seeing 6'0-6'1 WRs that can't get any separation.
I think that workout could put him as a lock to be taken with the first five rounds. I'm a believer that he is healthy now. With Hill likely to be out of reach (I am doubtful he makes it anywhere near our pick now), the middle rounds are looking much more attractive to land a WR.
Just did a little reading and it's being said that Childs now will have a shot to go as high as the third, or probably the 4th round. Wow.
