Just a few short months ago, the NFL Draft featured a running back that dropped down draft boards. Despite being the consensus second-best running back in the class, some strange news -- founded or unfounded as it was -- surfaced and derailed the draft stock of Derrius Guice, a dynamic runner out of LSU.
Behind Saquon Barkley, Guice was expected to be a late first or early second round pick. But given the news, Washington was able to scoop up Guice with the 59th overall pick and as the 7th running back taken. This was a great value for a team seeking an early-down workhorse to complement the speedy, pass-catching Chris Thompson in the backfield.
