Even Lil Wayne weighed in as Derrius Guice's NFL Draft stock plummeted

In what was among the most shocking draft-day slides in recent National Football League history, former LSU running back Derrius Guice - considered by many to be a top-20 pick - fell to the Washington Redskins with pick No. 59 on Friday night.

The Washington Redskins ended running back Derrius Guice's draft free fall. Guice was selected by Washington in the second round with pick No. 59.

"It did surprise me because a lot of the things came out of nowhere and weren't true", Guice said on a conference call Friday, according to ESPN.

Guice had been viewed by some as the second-best running back in the draft, behind the Giants' No. 2 pick, Saquon Barkley, but his stock fell leading up to the draft because of to some off-the-field concerns.

"He's quite the character", Gruden said.

Rapoport said that someone within the Eagles organization told him it was the worst meeting with a prospect he had ever been a part of leading up to a draft.

Yes, a player who may be considered the second-best running back in the class almost fell to the third round and could very well be the Redskins' starting running back as a rookie.

Derrius Guice of LSU.

Personally, I believe if the Ravens take a running back in this class, I think it will be on day three of the draft. Sources describe him as immature, high-maintenance. There are still six more rounds to go through - with two of them getting broadcasted tonight at 7 p.m.

The Redskins hope Guice solves their running back problem, something senior vice president of player personnel Doug Williams promised recently acquired quarterback Alex Smith he'd do.
