NFL Draft Prospects in the 2018 Camping World Bowl

The bowl season gives fans and scouts alike a chance to analyze NFL Draft prospects against solid competition. The bowl season schedule allows all eyes to be on each game. Here are the NFL Draft prospects in the 2018 Camping World Bowl.

West Virginia Mountaineers Prospects

*Quarterback Will Grier will not play in this bowl game as he prepares for the NFL Draft. He is a projected second to fourth-round draft pick.

*Gary Jennings will not play in this bowl game with an ankle injury. He is a projected fourth to second-round draft pick.

David Sills V, WR

Sills is a former quarterback that was offered a scholarship when he was 14-years-old to play quarterback at USC. Since that time he has become a great wide receiver. At West Virginia, he has 128 receptions for 2,007 yards and 35 touchdowns. This season he has recorded 61 catches for 896 yards and 15 touchdowns.

He is 6-foot-4 and 210 pounds, which is great size for an NFL wideout. Sills has used his size to his advantage with 33 touchdown catches over the last two seasons.

Projected draft range: Second round-fourth round

Yodny Cajuste, OT

Cajuste has overcome a season-ending knee injury two years ago to have two really good seasons at West Virginia to close out his college career. He has been honored by the Big-12 and national media outlets for his play. He is questionable for this game with a leg injury.

He stands 6-foot-5 and 321 pounds, which is decent for an NFL tackle. Cajuste is a good pass blocker and should be selected in the middle rounds of the draft.

Projected draft range: Third round-fifth round

Dravon Askew-Henry, S

Askew-Henry has experience at both corner and safety at West Virginia. In his career, he has 201 total tackles, nine tackles for loss, six interceptions, 10 passes defended and one interception. This season he has 48 total tackles, 4.5 tackles for loss, two interceptions and one pass defended.

At 6-foot and 200 pounds, Henry has ok size for a safety. His experience playing cornerback will most likely make him a free safety fit for most teams.

Projected draft range: Sixth round-undrafted free agent

Syracuse Orange Prospects

Chris Slayton, DT/DE

Slayton has played both defensive tackle and defensive end, but fits in best as a defensive tackle for pro teams. He has 98 total tackles, 29.5 tackles for loss, 7.5 sacks, three passes defended, one fumble recovery and four forced fumbles for his career. In nine games this season he has 18 total tackles, seven tackles for loss, 3.5 sacks and one forced fumbles.

He is 6-foot-4 and 309 pounds, which is solid. Slayton is a candidate to be selected in the middle rounds of the draft.

Projected draft range: Fourth round-sixth round

Eric Dungey, QB

Dungey has battled through injuries and a lot more to be one of the best quarterbacks in Syracuse history. In his career, Dungey has thrown for 9,037 yards, 57 touchdowns and 28 interceptions on 61.2% completion. This year, he has 2,565 passing yards, 17 touchdowns and seven interceptions on 59.8% completion. He has been a good runner at Syracuse too, with 1,971 rushing yards and 35 touchdowns in his four seasons.

The senior has a good build at 6-foot-4 and 225 pounds. Dungey is seen as more than a runner than a thrower, but he’ll get a shot to make an NFL team.

Projected draft range: Seventh round-undrafted free agent
