Redskins pick LSU RB Derrius Guice in 2nd round of NFL Draft

Redskins select DT Tim Settle in Round 5

Redskins selected LSU RB Derrius Guice with the No. 59 overall pick in the 2018 National Football League draft. A few picks later, Guice would end up being selected by a familiar face in the Washington Redskins at No. 59, and while some questioned the decision by the Eagles to pass on the running back, it appears there may have been a legitimate reason behind the decision.

After the combine, Guice told SiriusXM Satellite Radio that one team asked him if he was gay and another asked if his mother "sells herself".

The NFL launched an investigation but later issued a statement that said it could not find any credible evidence of the questions taking place.

Senate confirms Mike Pompeo as next secretary of state
With the world watching, civility in that debate will enable our next Secretary of State to serve our country well. Bush, Grenell worked closely with John Bolton, who served as USA ambassador there for 18 months in 2005 and 2006.

Seen as a sure-fire first-round pick leading up to the 2018 NFL Draft, the past several weeks have been filled with rumor and innuendo surrounding Guice. "He's quite the character", Washington coach Jay Gruden said, per ESPN.com.

Derrius Guice #5 of the LSU Tigers rushes for yardage during the game against the Florida Gators at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium on October 7, 2017 in Gainesville, Florida. 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. Six running backs had been taken ahead of him by that point, including three others from the SEC.

Unfortunately, he struggled to stay healthy himself as a junior, rushing for 1,251 yards and 11 touchdowns on just 5.3 yards per carry. So, what are they getting in Guice? "Can't really let my personality shine like normal", the record-setting LSU running back continued. He does have durability concerns, which could have contributed to him not being drafted higher.
