Draft Scout Wes Hills News
01/29/19 - It may not seem the most vexing of losing streaks, the eighth NFL Players Association Collegiate Bowl being an all-star game, but after the American team knocked off their National counterparts 10-7 on Saturday at the Rose Bowl, they celebrated as if they had ended an age-old demon. "You could see a group of guys come together today," said Bears defensive coordinator Chuck Pagano, who coached the American squad. "Down seven at the half and come back and pull this thing out. "We talked about it all week, the National team was (7-0) since they started this game. It meant a lot to these kids and it meant a lot to our staff."
The National squad was in familiar position when it took a 7-0 lead in the second quarter on a punishing 4-yard touchdown run my game MVP Wes Hills of Slippery Rock. The game is designed to feature players on the fringes of the NFL draft, and those who might go undrafted and invited to camp. No player may have done more for himself that Hills, who rushed for 78 yards on 10 carries, showing explosiveness and determination. His play during the week of practice earned him an invite Thursday to next week's Senior Bowl. "You dream about calls like that," Hills said. The 6-foot-2, 218-pound Hills went under the collegiate radar despite rushing for over 2,100 yards and 35 touchdowns at New Jersey's Wildwood High School. He had only two offers, to Towson and Delaware. - AP College Football

When he played and was healthy, he was one of the top players in the nation. He still led Delaware in rushing, carrying 88 times for a team-high 728 yards and seven touchdowns while averaging 8.3 yards per carry. He was one of the few players in the nation to have two 200-yard rushing efforts as he gained 242 yards and scored two touchdowns vs. Maine and had 212 yards and two scores against Delaware State. Had he played enough game to qualify (75 percent), he would rank No. 14 nationally in yards rushing per game (104.0) and No. 2 in yards per carry (8.3). Hills also missed all but one game of the 2015 season with a broken foot. - Delaware Football
