Redskins Select LSU Running Back Derrius Guice In 2018 NFL Draft

44 pick, there were plenty of talented players left on the board, most notably Iowa cornerback Josh Jackson and LSU running back Derrius Guice. During the interview, the running back told SiriusXM that one National Football League team at the National Football League scouting combine asked if he is gay and another asked if his mother "sells herself".

Asked specifically about reports that he was involved in an altercation with Eagles running backs coach Duce Staley, Guice said: "My trip to the Eagles was great". ESPN's Todd McShay said Guice had issues being on time and teams thought he lacked accountability.

In three years at LSU, Guice ran for 3,074 yards and 29 touchdowns and caught 32 passes for 250 yards and three scores.

Four LSU Tigers have been selected so far after the first three rounds of the 2018 NFL Draft. "He's quite the character", Gruden said.

"We'll keep a close eye on him like we do with all our players, without a doubt", Redskins head coach Jay Gruden said Friday night. "Lucky to get him, this is a hard-nose runner".

Aside from injuries, Guice has the talent to be a workhorse right off the bat in Washington. But teams felt on Thursday night and then Friday again that his stock was really falling and once that happens teams are like, "we can slide back" as the Redskins did and maybe grab him.

"I'm so grateful to be part of this organization", added Guice, who will join a crowded backfield that consists of six running backs, including Chris Thompson, Rob Kelley and Samaje Perine. But, we know where he ended up now, and it's not the end of the world.

The trade makes sense for the Redskins, as they always desired to gain a third round pick back, which they lost in the trade with Kansas City for QB Alex Smith.

Yes, a player who may be considered the second-best running back in the class almost fell to the third round and could very well be the Redskins' starting running back as a rookie.
