Derrius Guice, RB, LSU

How does this guy not have a thread? I know he just returned from injury, but this dude is a freaking animal. A lot of scouts and RB coaches that I follow believe Guice is a more natural runner than Barkley. There's a lot of Zeke to his game. TBH, I liked Guice more than I did Barkley coming into this year and still do.

I like him more for this offense than Barkley. Still wouldn't take him in the first round, but if he drops I wouldn't mind getting him in the late 2nd if Hyde walks.

Sources Tell Us: Buzz building again for LSU RB Derrius Guice

The scoop: LSU's Derrius Guice had become the forgotten man at running back in the first half of the season when so much attention was focused on the outstanding play of Penn State's Saquon Barkley. However, Barkley cooled off just as Guice started to heat up over the past few weeks. Scouts haven't cooled on Guice's NFL potential at all despite his quiet first half of the season, and one scout believes Guice is about to "get 'em talking again" with his next two games (at Tennessee, vs. Texas A&M).

The skinny: I struggled this summer when deciding which running back to rank No. 1 at the position between Barkley and Guice. Both players have great size and are exceptionally talented, so I went back and forth until ultimately settling on Guice. There's no doubt the pendulum swung in the other direction with Barkley's impressive start, but Guice is doing a good job of reminding us about what he can do.

It appears that Penn State head coach James Franklin is limiting the wear and tear on Barkley down the stretch (averaging 16 touches in the past two games), but Barkley's production has been very poor by the star RB's standards in the past 3 weeks (averaging 2.9 yards per carry).

Guice, on the other hand, appears to be healthy again after dealing with a nagging left leg injury earlier in the season. He hung 276 rushing yards on Ole Miss, 147 on Arkansas and is expected to load up the stat sheet against both Tennessee and Texas A&M.

The Barkley vs. Guice debate could be more interesting than some might expect if both decide to enter the draft after the season.

Since we are definitely out or Barkley range I wonder where he will land? Have you guys watched him? He is ridiculous. I wouldn't mind landing him at all.

I think he's top 15, a lot to like about him, I do prefer Ronald Jones in our scheme though, I was prepared to overlook that for Barkley but not quite there on Guice

Guice is a monster. The only reason he's not getting as hyped as Barkley is that he's been dealing with a nagging injury all season, but he's every bit the beast that Barkley is. I like that, unlike Barkley, Guice will run through somebody's face.

Daniel Jeremiah is adamant that he sees a young Frank Gore in Guice.

If Guice is the next Frank Gore, he's still not half the prospect Barkley is. He's very tough to bring down, but Fournette was a better player than Guice (by far). Guice had a better Y/C average last year because Fournette got the vast majority of the work against the tough teams on LSU's schedule while Guice got a lot of carries late in games and against the cupcakes on their schedule. Barkley may be a better prospect than Fournette because of his receiving ability.

As a runner, they're close - Guice will break more tackles, but Barkley has breakaway speed.

I think Barkley is better, but also from what I've Seen Guice is more physical than Barkley as said earlier. My guess is the top 3-4 backs go in the 1st this year. I was surpised because you hear almost nothing about him, but I think he may the top back after Barkley.
Guice is an animal. The guy runs like somebody slapped his momma.
