He had more receiving yards and two touchdowns there but the yards per average drop from 7.6 the previous year to 5.3 in his junior season, meant he was going to drop in the draft. Injuries did affect him and still he had a 276-yard game, and that gave him three career games of 250 yards or more, an SEC record.

This guy has a lot of talent and should have an immediate impact with the Redskins. The fans already love him, he takes the time to sign autographs, invited many of them to the movies and he did well during OTA’s.
Guice will be a player to watch this preseason. If he does well, he could be in line for quite a few carries in the nation’s capitol.
