Running back Steve Slaton knows he'll be playing at least one more game for West Virginia. His decision about whether to return for his senior season won't come until after the Fiesta Bowl. Slaton, who finished fourth in the Heisman Trophy voting last season, said Sunday he would like to be a first-round NFL draft pick but doesn't know yet where he stands in the eyes of professional scouts. "That's the biggest thing is where I would be. After that, I haven't really sat down and thought about it," Slaton said. "I still have time after this game to think about it. I just want to focus on this game. I don't want to have any bad feelings that I spent too much time worrying about something else instead of worrying about this game." Slaton's numbers have dropped off this season in part because of the addition of freshman Noel Devine to the Mountaineers' already dynamic backfield. But anyone who has watched West Virginia this season can see Slaton hasn't been quite as elusive or explosive.
