As expected, Derrius Guice goes pro; so, who replaces him?

As expected, Derrius Guice goes pro; so, who replaces him?

Fittingly, the social media aficionado made his announcement official with a Twitter video. He was even better as a sophomore, piling up 1,387 rushing yards and 15 touchdowns.

Following a junior season that saw him put up almost 1,400 total yards and 13 touchdowns, Derrius Guice has announced that he'll forgo his senior season at LSU and enter the 2018 NFL Draft. He'll likely be ticketed for a selection on Day 2 of the draft, though a rise up to the first round with a strong evaluating process shouldn't be counted out. "Having he opportunity to play for this storied university was truly an honor".

"The 5'11", 212-pound back rushed for 1,251 yards and 11 touchdowns during his junior season. According to Ross Dellenger of The Advocate, Guice holds LSU's career yards-per-carry record (6.5) and has the school's single-game rushing record after torching Texas A&M for 285 yards in 2016.

Over his career, Guice notched 3,074 yards on 471 carries and scored 29 touchdowns on the ground.

His biggest game this season was against Ole Miss. He also added two more scores as a receiver.

CBS Sports ranks him as the second-best running back in this class behind Penn State's Saquon Barkley, as does Bleacher Report's Matt Miller.

Guice claimed he hadn't given much thought to his draft status following the Tigers' Citrus Bowl loss last week, despite being projected by many as a first-round pick.
