  • Derrius Guice is Redskins fans choice at RB

The end of his freefall came Friday night (April 27) when the Washington Redskins selected the LSU running back late in the second round with the 59th overall pick.

Guice made headlines last month in an interview with SiriusXM when he said that in interviews with certain teams at the National Football League scouting combine, they asked inappropriate questions about his sexuality and his mother's professional life.

Wide receiver D.J. Chark, runningback Derrius Guice, linebacker Arden Key, and defensive back Donte Jackson were all taken by teams on Friday night. "I'm just not sure that he was the guy with all the other stuff off the field that the Eagles wanted", Westbrook said on air, adding that Guice has "a strong personality". According to reports from NFL Network and ESPN, Guice later backtracked and told multiple teams in interviews that he was not actually asked those questions by any teams.

He served aboard the USS Canberra, a guided missile cruiser, during the Vietnam War, according to Navy Public Affairs. Some of the crimes occurred while DeAngelo worked as an officer in the Auburn Police Department.

The Detroit Lions, who needed a running back entering Day 2 of the draft, traded up to take Auburn's Kerryon Johnson in the second round with Guice still on the board. "Lucky to get him, this is a hard-nose runner". "The speed never really anxious us because he's just so smart and he's always in the right position to play the ball".

Guice joins the Redskins on the heels of a productive collegiate career in which he rushed for more than 3,000 yards. We met with Derrius. "He's a good kid", Quinn said. He does have durability concerns, which combined with the reports of off-field problems likely contributed to him not being drafted higher.

"I just don't think that they had the best interview with him", Westbrook said.

Newly Drafted Patriots Lineman, Isaiah Wynn, Willing To Play Anywhere
Mayock published a mock draft Wednesday that had the Ravens selecting Jackson at No. 16 overall, behind four other quarterbacks. The leading candidates would be Oklahoma State's Mason Rudolph , Richmond's Kyle Lauletta, and Western Kentucky's Mike White.

During his junior season in 2017, Guice was named a second-team All-SEC selection, as he recorded 1,251 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns on 237 carries.

"I've been talking to (my agents) the whole time either and this is all news to them as well", Guice said. 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. In a surprise move, the Redskins traded the 44th and 142nd overall picks to San Francisco to move back in the order.
