Here are the top NFL Draft prospects in the Heart of Dallas Bowl.
Will Grier, QB — West Virginia
Grier had a very good first season with West Virginia, tallying nearly 3,500 yards to go with 34 TD and 12 INT. He also runs well and is relatively accurate. Considering the QB class and room for growth, Grier may be wise to come back to Morgantown for another season to get better and improve his stock. As it stands, most draftniks project a late-round mark for Grier, up to and including the chance he goes undrafted in 2018.
#WVU gets some great news: QB Will Grier is returning for the 2018 season and not entering the NFL draft early. Had a 34-12 TD-INT ratio in his first season there.

David Sills, WR — West Virginia
Sills can be a matchup problem for smaller corners at 6-foot-4 and 205 pounds. He's not a burner (4.57) but is a big target in the red zone and a good bet to win a lot of 50-50 balls. Sills tends to come with a Round 3-4 grade.
Darren Carrington, WR — Utah
The former Oregon Ducks receiver showed explosive ability in Eugene and flashed the same in Utah, but also displayed better route-running ability than in prior seasons. He's a 4.5 runner with size at 6-foot-2 and just under 200 pounds.
Lowell Lotulelei, DT — Utah
Younger brother of Carolina Panthers DL Star, Lotulelei is a horse at nose tackle at 315 pounds. He doesn't have the explosion Star did coming out, but still projects as a Day 3 prospects.
