LSU RB Derrius Guice, other Tigers, surprisingly fall in the NFL Draft

Redskins select Louisville OL Geron Christian in Round 3

We're nearly through two rounds of the 2018 NFL Draft and former LSU star running back Derrius Guice, one of the top tailbacks heading into the event, still hasn't been selected.

As a sophomore in 2016, Guice led the SEC in rushing yardage (1,387) despite only starting six of the 12 games in which he appeared, garnering first-team All-SEC honors at running back in addition to earning a second-team all-purpose selection from the league's coaches. 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.

Key dropped on some Draft boards after answering off-the-field concerns from National Football League scouts, after taking a leave of absence from the program before the 2017 season started.

Smith said on ESPN , the missed goaltending call didn't mean anything when it came to the final result of the game. The window is now open Friday for James to eliminate the Pacers for the fifth time in the past seven seasons.

Rapoport said that someone within the Eagles organization told him it was the worst meeting with a prospect he had ever been a part of leading up to a draft.

Guice created a strong pushback from LGBTQ advocates with the accusations, claims he made in a SiriusXM interview last month. ESPN's Todd McShay said Guice had issues being on time and teams thought he lacked accountability.

The NFL conducted an investigation and found no evidence that any team asked Guice inappropriate questions.

Guice, in his junior year at LSU, rushed for 1,251 yards and 11 touchdowns on 237 carries.

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. So, what are they getting in Guice?
