Derrius Guice's stunning fall in the draft


NFL Draft, Day One: Guice expected to be selected day two

Wide receiver D.J. Chark, runningback Derrius Guice, linebacker Arden Key, and defensive back Donte Jackson were all taken by teams on Friday night.

Guice is a fiery competitor and plays with his heart on his sleeve, so it's no surprise that his passion can get out of hand sometimes.

Many draft experts project Guice as a first-round selection and the second running back picked in the draft. Now, the Redskins hope to reap the benefits of Guice's precipitous fall. "I'm just not sure that he was the guy with all the other stuff off the field that the Eagles wanted", Westbrook said on air, adding that Guice has "a strong personality".

However, there's no way to confirm what was said by Benjamin Allbright is actually true, but why would football fans think otherwise when seeing how long it took for Guice to come off the board?

"I already ran angry", he said on the radio. "I can't wait to be unleashed on the field". There is another investigation out there that could be potentially embarrassing for the kid and the team that drafts him.

"I've been talking to (my agents) the whole time either and this is all news to them as well", Guice said.

The NFL investigated and said this week that it found no evidence any team asked inappropriate questions during interviews at the scouting combine. "It's all hitting them and me off guard and out of nowhere and we just don't know where it's coming from our how it happened".

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. He immediately becomes Washington's every-down back and paired with third-down superstar, Chris Thompson, the Redskins could have one of the better backfields in the league.

"We felt the trade was needed", Gruden said.
