Washington Redskins: Derrius Guice a steal on Day 2

  • LSU’s Derrius Guice speaks at February’s draft combine

In what was among the most shocking draft-day slides in recent National Football League history, former LSU running back Derrius Guice - considered by many to be a top-20 pick - fell to the Washington Redskins with pick No. 59 on Friday night. A few picks later, Guice would end up being selected by a familiar face in the Washington Redskins at No. 59, and while some questioned the decision by the Eagles to pass on the running back, it appears there may have been a legitimate reason behind the decision.

"Why is LSU RB Derrius Guice sliding?"

Widely considered the draft's second-most talented running back behind Penn State's Saquon Barkley, Guice called the past two days nerve-wracking.

A versatile runner who can win with power in-between the tackles and make people miss in the open field, Guice has the speed to take carries the distance and excelled when he was asked to catch the ball out of the backfield. "He's quite the character", Gruden said. "Some incidents in college teams found out about that were not reported".

Guice joins the Redskins on the heels of a productive collegiate career in which he rushed for more than 3,000 yards.

Guice denied reports he got into an argument with Eagles general manager Howie Roseman and assistant head coach Duce Staley during his pre-draft visit to the defending Super Bowl champions. "Lucky to get him, this is a hard-nose runner". But the Washington Redskins put a wrinkle in the cloth.

Personally, I believe if the Ravens take a running back in this class, I think it will be on day three of the draft. But what else did they get?

That visit was at the same time Da'Ron Payne, the team's first-round selection, was visiting.

The Redskins, without a third-round pick due to the Alex Smith trade, chose to move back from No. 44 in a swap with San Francisco, adding that third-round pick.

Washington then used the 74th pick, in the third round, to select Louisville offensive lineman Geron Christian.
