2012 NFL Draft: Trio of Arkansas wide receivers come off the board in round 4

Tyler Wilson and the Arkansas Razorbacks lit up the SEC with a dangerous aerial attack this past fall, largely due to the presence of a dangerous trio of wide receivers. Joe Adams, Greg Childs and Jarius Wright made life easy for Wilson and the rest of Arkansas' offense all season long.

Now, the three pass catchers are all moving on to the NFL, as each was drafted in the fourth round of the 2012 NFL Draft. Adams was taken off the board first by the Carolina Panthers, while the Minnesota Vikings took Wright and Childs off the board later in the round. All three have had various degrees of injury trouble that held them back during their collegiate career.

I can't ever remember a time where three wide receivers from one school got taken off the board in the same round of the same draft.

One of the top quarterbacks in the 2013 NFL Draft class, Tyler Wilson will have his work cut out for him working with an entirely new set of wideouts next fall in addition to working with a new head ball coach. He'll be an interesting prospect to track this season.
