The Washington Redskins chose Alabama defensive lineman Da'Ron Payne on Thursday as their first pick during the 2018 NFL Draft.

Many draft experts project Guice as a first-round selection and the second running back picked in the draft.

He made news in March during an interview on SiriusXM Satellite Radio when he said one National Football League team at the scouting combine asked if he was gay and another club asked if his mother "sells herself".

Instead of securing Guice with the final pick of the first round, Philadelphia made a decision to trade down with the Baltimore Ravens, who would use the selection on Lamar Jackson as a potential successor to Joe Flacco when the time comes.

There are some who thought that besides Penn State running back Saquon Barkley, Guice was the best tailback in the draft. Sources describe him as immature, high-maintenance. Those aren't pedestrian numbers for most backs, but for Guice, they fell short of his expectations. Let's take a look at three backs they could select throughout these three draft days.
