LSU seems to produce running back after running back. After teammate Leonard Fournette was taken with a top-five selection in the 2017 NFL Draft, high draft equity was spent on Guice in 2018 as Washington took him 59th overall.
What can we expect from Guice?
Guice As a Prospect
If Guice had not battled injuries for a good portion of 2017, he may have been considered a better prospect than Fournette was thought of when Fournette came out. After all, in 2016, Guice dominated while Fournette dealt with his own injuries. That year, Guice posted a clip of 7.6 yards per carry with 15 touchdowns on 183 carries. For comparison, Fournette put up 6.5 yards per run and needed 300 carries to rack up for 22 touchdowns in 2015, his best season.
