NFL Network: “Potentially highly embarrassing” issue caused Derrius Guice’s slide

LSU running back Derrius Guice lasted until Washington chose him at No. 59, even though he had the talent to be a Top 20 pick. And the league’s own media outlet is explaining that Guice has something embarrassing in his personal life that scared teams off.

Mike Mayock hinted on NFL Network early in tonight’s second round that something was coming out about Guice, but he didn’t say what it was. About an hour later, Mayock elaborated.

“He’s a first-round talent,” Mayock said of Guice. “He had several issues getting to different buildings and meeting with teams. He missed some flights. They didn’t like his attitude. The NFL investigated and cleared him. He fired his agent. It was a tumultuous offseason for this young man. He did not put his best foot forward. Now today I’ve had several text messages from general managers telling me there’s another investigation out there that could be potentially highly embarrassing to the kid and maybe to the team that selects him. That’s why he’s sliding now.”

Whatever this “potentially highly embarrassing” issue is, it’s something Washington thinks it can handle — but apparently something other teams wanted nothing to do with.

  1. Personally I am shocked that the Redskins have picked this young man. I was also surprised this morning when the sun appeared, I was worried that it was going to be dark all day.

    The Redskins have nothing to lose. They are already about as embarrassing a franchise as you can get.


    The Gruden family is average at coaching.

  3. It would figure that the Redskins would draft trash – that is what they’ve done recently – horrible off season – this team has not improved itself in this draft.

  4. Soooo, since you other team fans wanna talk about other teams drafting trash, so what did he do…….you probably should find out before you trash the guy. Not a Washington fan, just a people fan. Find out what he did first before you start throwing stones.

  5. This guy is going to turn out to be a knucklehead and a humongous headache for Washington. He may have gotten by with that at LSU but I bet his teammates in Washington won’t put up with it.

  6. Hmmm, maybe they unearthed racially-insensitive tweets from when he was in high school..

  7. when I look in the mirror and remember all the immature things I did
    when I was 15 to 18
    we forget our mistakes and are quick to judge others
    We want perfection from others, but expect them to forgive our imperfections

  8. This year Guice saved a trapped woman from a smoking car, putting himself in
    serious danger. I think he deserves a break until we hear something definitive.
    Hell, I’d yell at the Eagles brass too. They were probably singing that lame “Fly,
    Eagles Fly” song

  9. All this dissing on Guice, yet the Browns draft a kid, WR Callaway, that flunks the drug test AT THE COMBINE, got busted for drugs and drug equipment, and hangs around with known drug dealers nothing is said….SHEESH!!!
