LSU running back Derrius Guice declares for 2018 NFL Draft

LSU running back Derrius Guice declares for 2018 NFL Draft”

His departure along with the departure of senior backup Darrel Williams means the top returning rusher for the Tigers is senior-to-be Nick Brossette, who rushed for 78 yards this season.

"He's just a crucial player for our team and he's just been continuing to get better and better and feeling healthier and healthier, so that's been great for us to have", LSU quarterback Danny Etling said of Guice, per the Associated Press (h/t USA Today). 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. "I am grateful and excited to start this new journey". He missed one game and parts of others but had a breakout showing against Ole Miss with 22 carries for 276 yards and a touchdown. 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. 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. Guice is a Baton Rouge native. He immediately profiles as high as the second-highest graded runner in the draft behind Penn State's Saquon Barkley.

Guice joins offensive tackle Toby Weathersby, outside linebacker Arden Key and cornerbacks Kevin Toliver and Donte Jackson as LSU's early entrants in this year's draft class.
