    I know we have quite a few Razorback fans like me on here. Jerry has drafted suprisingly few Razorback gems over the years (Jason Peters comes to mind - I felt confident he would be a great NFL OL). Do we take a shot at Adams or Childs? Which one?

    Here's the thing, Adams give you a dynamic punt returner right off the bat. Also a guy you could do some creative stuff with - he's a Reggie Bush type. Childs, on the other hand, is more of the prototypical NFL receiver. He has a chance to be a very solid #2 receiver in this league. So I'm actually kind of torn on which one I'd want. Adams gives immediate juice; Childs could possibly become a long term starter.

    M partial to TJ Graham, who reminds me a. Bit of a guy I liked coming out last year Denarius Moore. Moore had a pretty good rookie year with Oakland.

    The choice is not that easy for me. Adams was arguably the most dynamic college football player last season. I'd put him up there with the honey badger and Richardson.

    For this team, I would probably take Adams cause of his immediate impact on special teams.

    We got alot of guys like Childs, but noone like Adams.

    It does depend on how far they fall, and here's hoping one of them is there in the 4th-5th rounds (most likely Childs will be available later than Adams).

    Adams and Childs still available. Adams is the highest rated receiver left on ESPN's board.

    We never drafted him. The only razorback Jerry has ever drafted was Felix.

    With that said, I'd love to get Joe Adams.

    That was my point. I think Peters went in the 7th round. Jerry should have known his potential, but didn't get him.

    Yeah...

    You can toss Jarius Wright in there, too.

    Apparently there's some kind of medical issue with Adams. I think it was Spagnola who mentioned it today on Talkin' Cowboys, or it was Norm on his radio show. It's all running together at this point.

    I vote Childs just so we can go, "Oooh Childs!" when he makes a play. That would be pretty annoying to the other NFC East fans. :)

    Well I was wondering when this would come up.

    I don't know what they have found out recently, but the thing I can think about with Adams medically is the 'mild stroke' he had 2 years ago. I know he was held out a couple of games for it, came back and was fine but it could be an issue with NFL teams. Here is an article on it:

    http://www.al.com/sports/index.ssf/2011/11/two_years_after_mild_stroke_ar.html

    If this drops him, we could really get a deal late in the draft.

    Interesting. Definitely wasn't expecting to hear stroke. That would definitely qualify.

    Still, I'm changing my vote to Adams. Got bored. Watched a bunch of YouTube clips on Adams. That guy is all kinds of crazy fast with great running instincts. I don't care that he ran 4.55 at the combine. If he's so slow, why's he running by everybody?

    It's clear he doesn't have real natural hands on anything longer than 15-20 yards, but for a slot role he'd be amazing. On returns he'd be amazing.

    I like Childs a ton, but you're right - we do have that type on the roster. We don't have what Adams would bring. Hopefully we haven't removed him from the board.

    Yeah, its something that probably every team knows at this point, and could drop him right into our hands. I would take him in a heartbeat, and think it could make him available in the 5th round.

    Watching clips of him is like watching a video game, but he is limited as a WR cause he doesn't have great hands at the moment. All this should make him drop, hopefully (have I done good trying to drop his stock?!?!).

    ;)
