Cotton Bowl 2012: Arkansas' Greg Childs Wants Big Finale

Arkansas' Greg Childs didn't have the sort of senior season that he might have hoped for: he caught just 16 passes for 192 yards after averaging 47 catches per year in 2009 and 2010 and compiling more than 1,500 yards between the two years. But Childs' demeanor hasn't changed much, and he's looking forward to a big performance in the 2012 Cotton Bowl against Kansas State that could boost his 2012 NFL Draft stock.

"I'm just waiting my time; it's coming real soon," Childs said. "It's going to be a show."

Childs has dealt with the aftereffects of a knee injury that cut his 2010 campaign short after eight games, and has only slowly built back to the combination of size and speed that made him a terror for SEC defenses to deal with, and has been passed as a target by Jarius Wright and Joe Adams. Arkansas hasn't quite lived up to expectations, either: the Razorbacks went 10-2, but lost in dispiriting fashion to both LSU and Alabama.

But a big game in the Cotton Bowl could improve Childs' mood, and probably help Arkansas' chances of taking a lofty perch in the 2012 preseason rankings.
