RB Guice opts for NFL Draft over staying in school

As expected, Derrius Guice goes pro; so, who replaces him?

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. In 2016, he became just the second SEC player to record at least 250 rushing yards in more than two consecutive games.

"My heart and my DNA is made up of this attractive city of Baton Rouge, and its university of LSU", said Guice, who grew up in south Baton Rouge. "Having he opportunity to play for this storied university was truly an honor". In sharing time with Fournette, Guice tallied 1,493 total yards and 16 touchdowns at a clip of 7.6 yards per rush back in 2016.

Guice got off to a quick start this past season, topping the 100-yard mark in each of the first two games and combining for four touchdowns.

His biggest game this season was against Ole Miss. He finishes his career with a remarkable average of 6.5 yards per carry. Guice is foregoing his senior season for the National Football League draft. He also rushed for 252 yards against Arkansas, including a school-record 96-yard touchdown scamper.

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.

The Baton Rouge Catholic graduate is expected to be one of the top running backs off the board in the upcoming draft.
