Guice slides to Redskins

Derrius Guice is Redskins fans choice at RB

NFL Network draft analyst Mike Mayock added that there is another investigation that could potentially be embarrassing for Guice and the team that selected him.

Instead of securing Guice with the final pick of the first round, Philadelphia chose to trade down with the Baltimore Ravens, who would use the selection on Lamar Jackson as a potential successor to Joe Flacco when the time comes.

On the eve of Thursday's first round, the National Football League concluded there was no evidence of any team asking inappropriate questions. But, we know where he ended up now, and it's not the end of the world. "So we'll wait and see and talk to Derrius, but he's assured us there was no altercation there at all".

"We felt like he fit in just fine". He's a good kid.

"I already got enough backlash".

Instead, he saw the likes of fellow running backs Rashaad Penny and Sony Michel follow consensus top back Saquon Barkley off the board.

He rushed for 2,638 yards and 26 touchdowns over the past two seasons for the Tigers. General manager Bob Quinn did not get into specifics except to say that for some teams there were some questions about Guice. Following the Redskins' pick, specifics came out.

Guice has the potential to be one of the best running backs in the draft, yet six others were selected before him.

The trade makes sense for the Redskins, as they always desired to gain a third round pick back, which they lost in the trade with Kansas City for QB Alex Smith.

Gruden expects to keep Christian at tackle, opening up the possibility that Ty Nsekhe moves to left guard, where Washington has an opening.
