Guice would hear his name called in that same 2nd Round, thanks to the Washington Redskins at pick no. 59. NFL Network reports sources describe Guice as "immature" and "high maintenance", noting some of his visits with teams did not go well.

However, there's no way to confirm what was said by Benjamin Allbright is actually true, but why would football fans think otherwise when seeing how long it took for Guice to come off the board?

The NFL investigated and said this week that it found no evidence any team asked inappropriate questions during interviews at the scouting combine.

Seen as a sure-fire first-round pick leading up to the 2018 NFL Draft, the past several weeks have been filled with rumor and innuendo surrounding Guice.

What we do know is that Washington nabbed an elite on-field player with its second-round pick.


The 5-foot-11, 225-pound power back said before the draft he had never been arrested or suspended and thought people were getting on him because was active on social media and liked to play video games. Guice has the potential to be one of the best running backs in the draft, yet six others were selected before him. Those aren't pedestrian numbers for most backs, but for Guice, they fell short of his expectations. He was the seventh running back taken in this draft.

Guice rushed for 2,638 yards and 26 touchdowns over the past two seasons for LSU.

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