New Washington Redskins running back Derrius Guice is looking for an explanation as to why he fell all the way to the No. 59 overall pick, after he entered the draft with widespread speculation that he'd be the second running back off the board.

The Washington Redskins ended running back Derrius Guice's draft free fall.

Guice gained notoriety in the pre-draft process for his freakish NFL Scouting Combine experience.

This comes on the heels of Guice denying said allegations.

"Why is LSU RB Derrius Guice sliding?"

Guice was previously projected as a first-round pick but slipped to late in the second after a tumultuous offseason that included changing agents and fielding what he considered inappropriate questions from teams at the scouting combine.

Guice created a strong pushback from LGBTQ advocates with the accusations, claims he made in a SiriusXM interview last month.

McShay said live on-air Friday night that National Football League executives told him that Guice was "late to meetings" and may have "accountability" issues.

There are some who thought that besides Penn State running back Saquon Barkley, Guice was the best tailback in the draft.

Guice rushed for 2,638 yards and 26 touchdowns over the past two seasons for LSU.

The NFL launched an investigation but later issued a statement that said it could not find any credible evidence of the questions taking place.

Immature. High maintenance. A headache for coaches. There are still six more rounds to go through - with two of them getting broadcasted tonight at 7 p.m. Let's take a look at three backs they could select throughout these three draft days.
