LSU's Derrius Guice entering National Football League draft

LSU's Derrius Guice entering National Football League draft

Following a junior season that saw him put up almost 1,400 total yards and 13 touchdowns, Derrius Guice has announced that he'll forgo his senior season at LSU and enter the 2018 NFL Draft. Since taking over for Leonard Fournette as the Tigers' starter this past season, it was nearly a foregone conclusion that Guice would enter the draft.

Guice announced his decision late Wednesday afternoon in a video posted on Twitter. He'll likely be ticketed for a selection on Day 2 of the draft, though a rise up to the first round with a strong evaluating process shouldn't be counted out.

"My heart and my DNA is made up of this handsome city of Baton Rouge, and its university of LSU", said Guice, who grew up in south Baton Rouge. The junior rushed for 3,074 yards and 29 touchdowns on 471 career carries, starting most of the past two seasons for his hometown Tigers.




Guice got off to a quick start this past season, topping the 100-yard mark in each of the first two games and combining for four touchdowns. He had five 100-yard performances this past season, including a 276-yard effort against Ole Miss.

That season, Guice also set the single-game school rushing record with 285 yards against Texas A&M.

Guice, just 20 years old, played three years for the LSU Tigers of the Southeastern Athletic Conference. He immediately profiles as high as the second-highest graded runner in the draft behind Penn State's Saquon Barkley.
