BOISE, Idaho -- Wide receiver Jeremy Childs will enter the NFL draft, leaving Boise State after his junior year and as the school's No. 2 all-time pass catcher.

Boise State coach Chris Petersen made the announcement Tuesday. Childs was the Broncos' leading receiver last season, catching 72 passes for 802 yards and seven touchdowns. He was a first-team all-Western Athletic Conference selection for the second consecutive season.

Childs finished his Boise State career with 168 catches for 1,999 yards and 17 TDs.
