Both Wright and Childs were picked in the fourth round of the NFL Draft on Saturday by the Minnesota Vikings. Wright went No. 118 to the Vikings and Childs was picked No. 134.
It was a dream they'd discussed, but figured it was too unlikely to actually come true.
"We talked about this one day, what if we end up going to the same NFL team? It would be crazy," Childs told Minnesota media. "We've been together through elementary school, middle school, junior high, high school, same college team, and now we are moving on in life and we still are going to the same team together."
