Derrius Guice's stunning fall in the draft

Derrius Guice's stunning fall in the draft

When the Philadelphia Eagles were finally on the clock during the end of the first round in the 2018 NFL Draft, early speculation was the team would use the No. 32 pick on former LSU running back Derrius Guice. Guice was selected by Washington in the second round with pick No. 59.

"He was described to me as high-maintenance, as immature, someone who did not handle his emotions well", NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported shortly before Guice was drafted.

"It did surprise me because a lot of the things came out of nowhere and weren't true", Guice said on a conference call.

The NFL investigated and said this week that it found no evidence any team asked inappropriate questions during interviews at the scouting combine. For weeks, there had been plenty of chatter surrounding the possibility of Guice joining the Super Bowl champions since the interest seemed to be there for both parties, but it looks like the Eagles had different plans in mind. "He's quite the character", Washington coach Jay Gruden said, per ESPN.com.

Derrius Guice #5 of the LSU Tigers rushes for yardage during the game against the Florida Gators at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium on October 7, 2017 in Gainesville, Florida. General manager Bob Quinn did not get into specifics except to say that for some teams there were some questions about Guice.

Guice does have durability concerns, which could have contributed to him not being drafted higher.

At this point, six running backs have been taken - Barkley, Rashaad Penny, Sony Michel, Nick Chubb, Ronald Jones II and Kerryon Johnson.
