2018 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about DERRIUS GUICE: LSU, 5104 224 4.52. Junior entry and two-year starter from Baton Rouge, LA. It would be an understatement to say Guice had a rough upbringing and the success he is experiencing is extremely admirable. After losing his father when he was five and a life filled with poverty and family issues, Guice showed maturity and determination beyond his years over his three year career at LSU. As a true freshman in 2015, he showed big play ability as Leonard Fournette’s backup. That evolved into every down danger for opposing defenses in 2016, as Fournette went through an injury-riddled season which opened the door for more opportunity for Guice. He responded with a team-leading 1387 yards and a SEC-leading 7.58 yards per carry. His running style screams anger, determination, and hunger. Foot speed is a plus along with his forward lean and pad level, allowing him to consistently fall forward for extra yards. Rarely goes down on first contact, will shake, wiggle, and power through arm tackles with active feet and grit. Once in the open field, his long speed is rarely caught from behind. Only two fumbles lost in his 534 career touches. Mainly a straight line rusher who lacks the loose hips and late wiggle in traffic. While he does show speed and explosion, the quickness and agility aren’t on the same level. Shows a limited, straight line running style. What he creates on his own comes via toughness and breaking tackles, but not as much via movement. The overly physical running style could shorten his shelf life in the NFL and it won’t be easy to shake from NFL defenders the way it was in college. His athletic ability combined with that approach assures at least some success in the NFL, but a lack of diversity to his game may limit him. 2017 stats: 1251 yds, 5.3 ypc, 11 TD, 18 rec, 124 yds, 6.9 ypr, 2 TD. OSR:10/29. First/second round. (A-30 3/4, H-9, BP-15, SS-DNP).
