It appears that Texas tackle Conner Williams will be the Big 12’s lone representative in Arlington, Texas this month among the 2018 NFL Draft prospects.
The NFL released a full list of draft prospects that will be in attendance at AT&T Stadium when the 2018 NFL Draft takes place from April 26-28. Of the 22 prospects, Williams was the only player from a Big 12 school on the list.
Williams, who hails from nearby Coppell, Texas, is expected by many to be selected in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft after spending three seasons with the Longhorns. His final season with the team in 2017 was plagued by a left knee injury that he sustained against USC in Week 3, forcing him to miss approximately two months of the season.
That time off, however, didn’t seem to affect him much when he returned to the field against West Virginia last November:

Williams declared early for the NFL Draft upon the conclusion of the season. Texas finished the 2017 season 7-6 overall, capped off by a win over Missouri in the Texas Bowl.
