LSU RB Derrius Guice declares for NFL Draft

LSU RB Derrius Guice declares for NFL Draft

His numbers dropped off slightly in his first and final year as the unquestioned starter, but he still maintained an average yards per carry of 5.3, and he had well over 1,000 yards and 10 touchdowns.

The already-deep running back draft class of 2018 added another top prospect on Wednesday, as LSU's Derrius Guice announced his intention to forego his senior season and enter the National Football League draft in a video message on his Twitter account.

He is projected to go in the first round of the National Football League draft according to analysts.


"It has always been my dream to be able to attend LSU", Guice said in the video. Guice eventually broke through, running rampant for 276 yards against the Ole Miss in LSU's 40-24 win. "Having an opportunity to play for this historic university was truly an honor... nothing will ever replace LSU in my heart because you played a big part in raising me from a young boy into becoming a man". In 2016, he became just the second SEC player to record at least 250 rushing yards in more than two consecutive games. According to Ross Dellenger of The Advocate, Guice holds LSU's career yards-per-carry record (6.5) and has the school's single-game rushing record after torching Texas A&M for 285 yards in 2016. As a prospect, Guice ranks as the No. 3 running back on the position board of ESPN's Mel Kiper Jr., trailing only Penn State's Saquon Barkley and Stanford's Bryce Love.

Guice claimed he hadn't given much thought to his draft status following the Tigers' Citrus Bowl loss last week, despite being projected by many as a first-round pick.
