2018 NFL Draft: Top 10 RBs New York Giants should target
By Henry Buggy
#2 – LSU RB Derrius Guice
Miller lists Guice as the “Best Power” of this year’s running back prospects, which comes as no surprise to anyone that has watched LSU play over the past two seasons.
The Tigers 5-foot-11, 218-pound running back is in the top five of almost all NFL draft analysts Big Boards and is likely to be a first-round selection should he decide to forego his senior year.
Guice was unable to match his impressive sophomore numbers in 2017 but still accounted for 1,253 yards and 11 touchdowns despite battling a knee injury. LSU’s lead running back would bring some much-needed physicality to Big Blue’s backfield but is highly unlikely to still be around at the start of the second-round.
While Guice is not the same level of talent as his former teammate Leonard Fournette, the LSU prospect will make an immediate impact at the next level. ESPN’s Todd McShay has the Seattle Seahawks selecting Guice with the No. 24 overall pick in his first 2018 Mock Draft.
