Redskins pick LSU RB Derrius Guice in 2nd round of NFL Draft

Derrius Guice fell in the 2018 NFL Draft, leaving many scratching their heads.

Guice is a fiery competitor and plays with his heart on his sleeve, so it's no surprise that his passion can get out of hand sometimes.

But Guice did eventually have his moment and was selected by the Washington Redskins 59th overall.

Guice said falling in the draft will only increase his motivation. Other than the chance of Guice possibly in round one, I don't think they're going to stray too far from their roster needs in the early rounds. One example cited was Guice's Sirius XM radio appearance in March in which he said teams asked him during interviews at the NFL Scouting Combine about his sexual orientation and his mother's work habits, a claim for which the NFL failed to find evidence in a lengthy investigation that followed. "I have a great personality and I just didn't understand why everything just hit so hard with me out of everybody", Guice said on a conference call.

David Krejci had three assists, Kevan Miller pitched in with two assists and Rick Nash and Riley Nash also had helpers as well. Both teams paid their respects to the victims of the rental van attack in Toronto that killed 10 people and injured 15 more.

"I was watching my phone and it got down to two minutes and I thought it had passed", Williams said. "I can't wait to be unleashed on the field". He does have durability concerns, which combined with the reports of off-field problems likely contributed to him not being drafted higher. Insider Ian Rapoport added there were incidents in college that teams found out about that were not previously reported.

Guice was also a first-team All-SEC back in 2016, earned second-team honors in 2017 and ranked fourth among SEC backs with 1,251 yards during his final season.

He made news in March during an interview on SiriusXM Satellite Radio when he said one National Football League team at the scouting combine asked if he was gay and another club asked if his mother "sells herself". We tried to get to know them as a person and see how they fit in and we felt like he'll fit in just fine. The Redskins grabbed him well after the hard-running power back had departed.
