LSU RB Derrius Guice is out on an official visit to the Philadelphia Eagles on Friday.
Per Draft Analyst's Tony Pauline, Guice has at least one big backer on Philadelphia's staff, that being RB coach Duce Staley. Given that the Eagles don't pick until the end of the first round, they might be slightly priced out on the LSU standout, at least barring a trade. Another interested party as we approach one month remaining until draft showtime is the Buccaneers, who rolled the 5-foot-10, 224-pounder through a private workout on Wednesday. Mar 16 - 4:23 PM

Rotoworld's Josh Norris has confirmed the Bucs will put LSU RB Derrius Guice through a private workout on Wednesday.

The Bucs have an obvious need at the position, and Guice has a chance of being on the board in the late first or early second round range. The Bucs pick No. 7 in the first round, so they could move up from their second-round slot and grab a talented running back in Guice. Expect the Bucs to put a number of other ball carriers through similar workouts.
Mar 14 - 10:50 AM's Daniel Jeremiah and Bucky Brooks ranked LSU RB Derrius Guice as the seventh best running back prospect of the past three seasons.

Guice is one of three members of the 2018 class to make the list, joining Penn State's Saquon Barkley and USC's Ronald Jones. He also is the second LSU Tiger to make the list, as Jaguars star Leonard Fournette ranks second on the list behind only Barkley. As Jeremiah and Brooks write: "How did LSU not win more games?" Guice currently projects as a late-first, early-second round selection.

The NFL is investigating questions asked to LSU RB Derrius Guice during NFL Combine interviews.

On Sirius XM, Guice states he was asked about his sexual orientation and "Hey, I heard your mom sells herself. How do you feel about that?" This is an ongoing issue in the NFL and has been reported in previous years, like with Dez Bryant, Eli Apple, Nick Kasa and others. If the goal is to get a prospect off balance in an interview, you would think the highest level of a profession would be able to figure out a different method.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports LSU RB Derrius Guice completed a formal meeting with the Steelers at the NFL Combine.

Guice is the name predominantly mentioned as the second best ball carrier in this class, and he did nothing to disprove that at the NFL Combine after producing a 4.49 forty. He elected to skip agility drills and likely will complete them at LSU's pro day. There are few teams with obvious running back needs in the back half of round one, but Rotoworld's Josh Norris has heard of a few that have already shown interest in Guice.

LSU RB Derrius Guice was listed as one of the "winners" of the Scouting Combine by Draft Wire's Michael Middlehurst-Schwartz.

Guice (5'10/224) was the "other" running back to watch with Saquon Barkley getting the (justifiable) hype, but the former LSU star more than held his own in Indianapolis. "The hard-nosed Guice ripped off a 4.49-second 40-yard dash and looked smooth, fueling comparisons to a young Marshawn Lynch," wrote Middlehurst-Schwarz. He helped solidify himself as one of the first running backs off the board, and he has a real chance of going in the first 32 selections.

Walter Football passes along that LSU RB Derrius Guice met with the Buffalo Bills at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Guice (5'10/224) does not outwardly seem like the cleanest fit in Buffalo given that they already have LeSean McCoy roaming the backfield, but no harm in talking with the LSU standout. Beyond the Bills, the Dolphins are one team believed to be intrigued by Guice. He ran a 4.49-second 40-yard dash at the combine on Friday and will be in the Round 1 conversation this spring.
Mar 4 - 8:51 PM

Dolphins beat writer Armando Salguero says Miami likes LSU RB Derrius Guice "a lot."

Guice produced a 4.49 forty during Friday's Combine activities as well as a 31.5-inch vertical but elected to skip the other events. Guice's 2017 was a lost season due to a thigh bruise, but he finished strong and has plenty of top tape while backing up Leonard Fournette.
Mar 3 - 9:09 AM

LSU RB Derrius Guice ran the 40-yard dash in 4.49 seconds at the NFL Scouting Combine.

A fine time for Guice, who checked into Indianapolis earlier this week measuring out at 5-foot-10 1/2 inches and 224 pounds. He also managed 15 reps on the bench press on Thursday. Guice is a bulldozer of a back and his top-end speed is more than sufficient for NFL work. We have questions about his versatility and ability as a receiver out of the backfield, but he'll be in play for a Day 1 selection this spring.

LSU RB Derrius Guice compares himself to Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch.

When asked to compare himself to a current NFL player. "Beast Mode," Guice replied. "The Skittle man." Guice measured in at 5-foot-10 1/2 inches and 224 pounds in Indy. He's currently in the middle of his 40-yard dash runs. The first unofficial run came in at 4.49. "I see anger. I see somebody that refuses to go down," Guice said of what he sees when he watches Lynch play. "When I run, I really think about him every time and when I go back and watch him, I'm like 'I really run like this dude, man.' It's crazy."
Mar 2 - 1:48 PM

LSU RB Derrius Guice unofficially recorded 15 reps on the bench press at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Guice is a compact back at 5-foot-10 1/2 inches and 224 pounds, but his strength -- at least in this particular test -- did not stand out on Thursday. His 15 reps were considerably fewer than the 29 bar hoists put in by Penn State's Saquon Barkley and Georgia's Nick Chubb. He'll try to make a stronger mark in speed and agility drills upcoming.
Mar 1 - 6:21 PM

LSU RB Derrius Guice arrived at the NFL Combine at 5-feet-10 1/2 and 224 pounds.

That is lead back size for Derrius Guice who uses that size to punish defenders on contact and create extra yards. Guice boasts 9-inch hands, 30 3/4 inch arms and a 72 3/4-inch wingspan. Expect Guice to complete a full workout in Indy after dealing with a deep thigh bruise this season.

On the Rotoworld Football Podcast, Josh Norris explained that LSU RB Derrius Guice is on the Thomas Rawls - Marshawn Laynch spectrum of player.

Norris explains this by stating Guice can thrive on contact, is an aggressive runner and frequently adds a few extra yards on final contact. That is quite different than the style that Saquon Barkley and Ronald Jones present. Classifying a player on a spectrum is important as it offers a range of outcomes.

Rotoworld's Thor Nystrom writes that LSU RB Derrius Guice "[s]eems like a player who’d have been drafted higher a decade ago."

"I just assumed I’d rank him as RB2 behind Barkley, which is where most others have him, but I found myself underwhelmed," Nystrom wrote of his tape study of the 5-foot-11, 216-pounder. While Guice brings plenty of thump and power to the table, the analyst was less impressed by his speed as well as his ability as a pass-catcher. Nystrom ranks him as the No. 4 running back prospect in this class. The NFL Scouting Combine figures to be a crucial stage for Guice. We do not view him as a guaranteed first-round selection.

Feb 17 - 2:15 PM Analyst Bucky Brooks projects the Steelers to take LSU RB Derrius Guice with the 28th pick in his latest mock draft.

A couple of things to keep in mind. First, LeVeon Bell is a free agent, and there have been some reports that the Steelers would consider letting him leave if they can't sign him to a long-term deal, or use the franchise tag again to bring him back for just one more year. Second, Guice is really good, and while he's probably not going to be as good as Bell -- very few can be -- he could help replace the production. As brooks writes: " Guice gives the team a solid backup plan for [Bell's] potential departure this year or next year."
