  • Redskins select LSU running back Derrius Guice with pick No. 59

Redskins selected LSU RB Derrius Guice with the No. 59 overall pick in the 2018 National Football League draft.

Combine that with the fact that the Ravens have shown some interest in a potential first round running back in Derrius Guice, and it becomes increasingly easier to believe the Ravens are open to drafting a running back in this draft.

Guice would hear his name called in that same 2nd Round, thanks to the Washington Redskins at pick no. 59.

Guice gained notoriety in the pre-draft process for his freaky NFL Scouting Combine experience.

Guice was projected by some analysts as the No. 2 running back in the draft behind Penn State's Saquon Barkley, who was picked second overall by the New York Giants.

Mulvaney later said he believes lobbyists swaying the opinions of politicians is an important part of democracy. Administration officials said the rebranding was an attempt to diminish the agency's public profile.

As for Guice, well, he was somewhat befuddled as to where exactly these rumors came from.

The NFL investigated and said this week that it found no evidence any team asked inappropriate questions during interviews at the scouting combine. "He's quite the character", Washington coach Jay Gruden said, per ESPN.com. Chris Thompson is a third-down monster for the Skins, but they could use someone on first and second downs since Alfred Morris is long gone and Matt Jones was never able to fill that role.

Guice, in his junior year at LSU, rushed for 1,251 yards and 11 touchdowns on 237 carries.

Derrius Guice planned to do it up big on the red carpet. Those aren't pedestrian numbers for most backs, but for Guice, they fell short of his expectations. Sources describe him as immature, high-maintenance.

The Redskins hope Guice solves their running back problem, something senior vice president of player personnel Doug Williams promised recently acquired quarterback Alex Smith he'd do.
