Greg Childs NFL Draft prospect notes

Greg Childs
6'3, 217 pounds | Wide receiver | Arkansas

First word:
While Greg Childs won't win many 40-yard dash contests, he's an efficient wide receiver who knows how to get open. Childs' games is similar to that of Mike Williams of the Buccaneers (without the off-field problems coming out).

Childs has good size, good hands and solid leaping ability. The knock on Childs is that he's not great in any one area. Because of that, he may never be a No. 1 wide receiver in the NFL.

He also missed the final five games of the season due to a torn patella tendon. Before the injury, Childs was never known as a top athlete at receiver so it will be interesting to see what effect this has on his game.

Games viewed: Georgia ('10), Texas A&M ('10), Auburn ('10), Alabama ('09), Georgia ('09), LSU ('09)

Bold statement: Fans won't be excited if their team drafts Childs, but they'll get a steady, reliable wide receiver.

Notes:

• Has nice size and build for the position. Knows how to use his frame to get space on jump balls.

• Displays better body control than some of the other big receivers in this class. Can contort his body to make a tough play on the ball.

• Childs is really good at high-pointing the ball and making the most out of a bad throw.

• Above-average as a route runner. Doesn't always make tight cuts. Is best on corner and drag routes where he can fake a defensive back.

• Doesn't have the kind of speed where he can simply blow past defensive backs on vertical routes. Can be caught from behind.

• A step slow out of his stance, which could hurt him more at the next level where the play speeds up.

• Is strong after the catch and can be hard to bring down.
