Overview

A two-time first-team All-WAC selection, Childs elected to follow the lead of his cousin, former Broncos cornerback Orlando Scandrick, in leaving after his junior season for the opportunity of NFL riches. Childs leaves Boise State second all-time in receptions (168), though his 1,999 yards rank only 11th in school history. That also represents scouts' greatest concern about Childs - a lack of speed and elusiveness to make yardage after the catch. Like Scandrick, Childs could surprise in workouts, leading to a late push up the board. Had an arm span of 33 3/4 inches and a hand span of 9 inches at the combine.

Analysis

Strengths

Positives: At least adequate size for the position. Athletic frame with room for additional mass. Good initial quickness off the snap. Has the lateral agility and the hand strength to slap away the initial punch in press coverage. Good balance and agility as a route-runner. Can sink his hips and change directions quickly as a route-runner. Best attribute might be his hands. Soft hands to pluck the ball out the air. Can extend and catch outside of his frame. Good body control and concentration to make the tough reception despite tight coverage. Knows where the sidelines are and can drag his feet. Negatives: Questionable straight-line speed and lacks the explosiveness out of his breaks to generate consistent separation from NFL-caliber cornerbacks. Lacks the elusiveness to make defenders miss and turn underneath routes into long plays. Was suspended for the 2007-08 Hawaii Bowl and again for the 2008 season opener (against Idaho State) for undisclosed violations of team rules.
