LSU's Derrius Guice entering National Football League draft

Noah Ferguson | 12 Января, 2018, 21:50

That announcement coming via a heartfelt video message from the running back and Baton Rouge-native on Wednesday. Taking over midseason for the injured Leonard Founette, Guice led the SEC in rushing yards (1,387) and yards per carry (7.6).

The already-deep running back draft class of 2018 added another top prospect on Wednesday, as LSU's Derrius Guice announced his intention to forego his senior season and enter the National Football League draft in a video message on his Twitter account.

"Growing up here in Baton Rouge, it was always my dream to attend LSU", Guice said.

He is projected to go in the first round of the National Football League draft according to analysts.

Guice was already assumed to be headed to the 2018 NFL Draft, but today, he confirmed those expectations on Twitter. Guice set the single-season school record for rushing yards in a 285-yard effort against Texas A&M in the 2016 season finale. 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.

Over his career, Guice notched 3,074 yards on 471 carries and scored 29 touchdowns on the ground. He finishes his career with a remarkable average of 6.5 yards per carry.

The top-end prospect is expected to be the No. 2 running back off the board behind Penn State's Saquon Barkley and could potentially go in the top 10.
