Greg Childs: "I Will Be The Steal Of The Draft"

In the fourth round of the 2003 NFL Draft, the Minnesota Vikings took a running back out of the University of Oregon by the name of Onterrio Smith. Upon being drafted by the Vikings, Smith declared himself to be the "steal of the draft" for 2003.

The last time anyone saw Onterrio Smith, he was being suspended for a year by the National Football League for violating the league's substance abuse policy. . .prior to which he attempted to get through an airport with a fake penis in order to cheat a drug test. (The Aristocrats!)

That's why we don't talk about Onterrio Smith much any more.

Now, nearly a decade later, another fourth-round draftee of the Minnesota Vikings has declared that he will be the steal of the 2012 NFL Draft. That man is wide receiver Greg Childs and, if he can regain the form that he had prior to his patella tendon injury in 2010, he might just live up to that billing.

Childs made that declaration on the "Vikings Tonight" podcast with Mike Wobschall. I love Childs' confidence here, and I certainly hope that this declaration turns out better than the last time a Minnesota Vikings' rookie made it. I'm really looking forward to Childs getting out onto the field this season.

Give the podcast a listen. . .good, quality stuff from the folks at Vikings.com.
