Childs is probably only now recovered from a 2010 right knee injury, but he pushed himself through the 2011 season anyway, catching 21 passes for 240 yards. By the time of the February Scouting Combine he was well enough to run the 40-yard dash in 4.52 seconds and manage a 36 1/2-inch vertical jump. But he considered his March 7 pro day a coming out when he ran 40 yards in 4.41 seconds and had a vertical jump of 41 1/2 inches. "It was just mainly showing everybody that I was healthy again, showing I was 100 percent again," Childs said after the on-campus workout. The injury was to his right patella and required surgery in 2010, otherwise he probably would have been in the 2011 draft. Instead, he struggled through the 2011 season, missing only a little action.

Childs is an extraordinary target due to his unusual combination of size, speed, jumping ability, long arms (34 1/8-inch) and, finally, huge hands, (10 1/8-inch).

Big fan of big dice rolls at this point, which is why this pick is a ton better than a FB/TE pick....this guy could make a difference if healthy.

Too big and strong for most defenders at this level to test him in press coverage. Good lateral agility to avoid press and make them pay due to good acceleration and better straight-line speed than he's often credited with possessing. Eats up the cushion, showing better agility and precision as a route-runner than most receivers of his size. Hands: Soft, reliable hands. Shows the ability to extend and pluck outside of his frame. Can track the ball over his shoulder, though he likes to turn back to the ball when he can.

Excellent concentration and good body control. Good arm length and hand strength to snatch passes high and wide, as well as slightly behind him. Capable of making tough grabs with defenders clinging to him. Good toughness to take a hit and hang on. Appears to possess a strong vertical to go along with his excellent size, though he doesn't often enough use each to his advantage. Has to do a better job of timing his leap and snatching the ball at its highest point against NFL-caliber cornerbacks.

LOL at the hate for this guy. He was a 1st round talent in 2010.

I like that Spielman stayed away from the more extreme projects like Streeter. Guys like Childs and Wright have upside, but also have the ability to contribute right off the bat.
