LSU RB Derrius Guice makes NFL Draft decision

Taking over midseason for the injured Leonard Founette, Guice led the SEC in rushing yards (1,387) and yards per carry (7.6).

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

"My heart and my DNA is made up of this lovely city of Baton Rouge, and its university of LSU", said Guice, who grew up in south Baton Rouge.

Guice leaves Baton Rouge as one of the programs all-time great running backs, accumulating more than 3,000 yards and 29 TDs in his LSU career.

Rob Rang, a senior analyst for NFLDraftScout.com, rated Guice as a top-10 pick before his injury-plagued junior season and still has him ranked in the top 25. "Having he opportunity to play for this storied university was truly an honor". He had five 100-yard performances this past season, including a 276-yard effort against Ole Miss.

The Baton Rogue native caught two touchdown passes and finished with 122 all-purpose yards (98 rushing, 24 receiving) while earning the game's most valuable player, despite the loss. He finishes his career with a remarkable average of 6.5 yards per carry. He also rushed for 252 yards against Arkansas, including a school-record 96-yard touchdown scamper. He immediately profiles as high as the second-highest graded runner in the draft behind Penn State's Saquon Barkley. Guice isn't just a prospect to round out the class, however.
