First Round

Comparison

Derrius Guice Washington Commanders

Densely built back with a powerful, muscled up lower and upper half. Special athletic traits. Speed, suddenness, explosiveness and burst are all elite. Has the frame and strength to run with power and through arm tackles. Capable of delivering blow as a runner and blocker. Dangerous in the open field with loose hips and acceleration to provide plenty of home-run ability. Runs with good lean and pad level. Hasn’t shown a lot of pass-catching on film. Injuries have cut into production and raise concerns about durability. Significant impact player at a major program and has first round NFL Draft traits.
