Derrius Guice walked onto his new home field taking cellphone video of his surroundings and waving to fans.

It’s the kind of moment he could have had on stage at the NFL draft had he gone in the first round as projected. Instead [url=http://www.giantsfootballauthentic.com/will-hernandez-jersey-authentic]Will Hernandez Game Jersey[/url] , the LSU running back slipped to late in the second round amid some off-field character concerns and will now give the Washington Redskins a very motivated rusher.

”I already ran angry and now I’m going to run angrier than ever,” Guice said Saturday. ”It’s going to be tough for a lot of teams to bring me down.”

In getting a run-stuffing defensive tackle in Alabama’s Da’Ron Payne at 13th , a powerful running back in Guice at 59th and Louisville offensive tackle Geron Christian at 74th, the Redskins hope to solve problems in the ground game on each side of the ball. They were worst in the NFL in stopping the run and fifth-worst in rushing.

”I stop the run for a living, so I think that’s going to be something easy,” Payne said.

The Redskins addressed most of their needs in one way or another at the draft, trading down to recoup the third-round pick they traded for quarterback Alex Smith, adding Guice to their backfield and stocking up on defensive depth.

Guice could end up being the best value, considering that the SEC record-holder for most 250-yard games dropped amid reports of an argument during his visit with the Eagles. Philadelphia general manager Howie Roseman denied there was any altercation, and Washington was satisfied enough in its meetings with Guice that it ended his freefall.

”No one wants to hear their name be slandered like that,” Guice said, repeating that he didn’t know where the reports came from. ”(The Redskins) didn’t just go off rumors, they didn’t just hear everything and believe it because they met me. They know me as a person [url=http://www.buffalobillsteamonline.com/lesean-mccoy-jersey]LeSean McCoy Jersey[/url] , so they already know who I am as a person. Just to see a team not let rumors and stuff like that affect their decision to bring me in, I have to give my all to these guys. They changed my life, they believed in me, they trusted me.”

NEED FOR SPEED: Washington added speedy Penn State safety Troy Apke with its fourth-round pick 109th overall to add to a group that already includes hard-hitting D.J. Swearinger and Montae Nicholson. Apke’s 4.34-second 40-yard dash was the fastest among safeties at the scouting combine.

”I think my speed will help with everything,” Apke said. ”I’m going to make a name for myself on special teams first, and then after that, just make my way into playing safety there.”

ON GUARD: Coach Jay Gruden saying that Christian will remain at tackle makes it a strong likelihood that Ty Nsekhe moves inside to fill the hole at starting left guard. That was the Redskins’ one starting job left open going in.

”You can never have too many big bodies,” Gruden said. ”I believe that, and it’s about protecting the passer (and) running the football.”

ROLL TIDE: Taking Payne and then inside linebacker Shaun Dion Hamilton in the sixth round gives the Redskins four Alabama products over the past two drafts. Payne joked that former teammates and 2017 picks Jonathan Allen and Ryan Anderson were more excited about the Crimson Tide defensive reunion than he was.

”It should be a lot of fun,” Payne said. ”Just being able to come in and already have some guys that I know there … they’ll help me out with little things and just guide me in the right direction.”

NEW D: Swearinger was so happy about adding Payne, Apke, fifth-round defensive tackle Tim Settle, seventh-round cornerback Greg Stroman and Hamilton that he tweeted : ”Welcome to the rebirth of the new and improved Redskins defense.” Time will tell if he’s correct [url=http://www.buffalobillsteamonline.com/tre_davious-white-jersey]Tre'Davious White Jersey[/url] , but after injuries in 2017, at the very least, Washington has more depth.

STILL NEED: Tight end depth and a developmental quarterback prospect. Injuries to TE Jordan Reed and Vernon Davis being 34 make it a position to watch well into training camp, along with QB, if the front office wants to start thinking about the post-Smith era.



鈥?The Latest on the NFL draft (all times local):10:25 p.m.South Carolina State linebacker Darius Leonard was the first of six lower-division players taken on the second day of the draft after an all-FBS first round.Leonard went to Indianapolis with the fourth pick of the second round, the 36th overall. South Carolina State is an FCS school.Philadelphia traded up to get the next FCS pick, tight end Dallas Goedert of South Dakota State at 49th overall.The Eagles ended up a spot ahead of the Dallas Cowboys, who are waiting for word from Jason Witten on whether the 15-year tight end will retire to join ESPN’s crew for “Monday Night Football.” The network reported that Witten planned to retire, but Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said the 10-time Pro Bowler hadn’t made a decision.The other second-round pick for lower-division teams was nose tackle P.J. Hall from Sam Houston State of FCS. Hall went to Oakland, as did the first pick in the third round, Brandon Parker of FCS North Carolina A&T. Parker was taken 65th overall.The last two choices were both from Division II schools: defensive tackle Nathan Shepherd from Fort Hays State to the New York Jets at No. 72 overall, and offensive lineman Alex Cappa of Humboldt State to Tampa Bay with the 94th pick. Shepherd is Canadian.10 p.m.The last pick of the second day of the draft was the first player taken from Clemson.The Kansas Chiefs selected Clemson linebacker Dorian O’Daniel with pick No. 100 overall. The Tigers are coming off their third straight College Football Playoff appearance and have been pouring players into the NFL in recent years.The dearth of Tigers in this year’s draft is good news for Clemson. The Tigers have three defensive linemen, including tackle Christian Wilkins [url=http://www.chargerscheapstore.com/derwin-james-jersey-cheap]Derwin James Youth Jersey[/url] , who are possible first- and second-round draft picks and all decided to return to school for another season.Alabama, Georgia and Ohio State all have had five players taken through three rounds.9:45 p.m.LSU outside linebacker and pass rusher Arden Key was considered a possibly top-10 pick after his sophomore season.But last year was a dud, derailed by a shoulder injury and a long time away from the program during the spring because of a marijuana issue.Key slid all the way to the third round and was taken with pick No. 87 by the Oakland Raiders.A second UCF player was taken in the draft when receiver Tre’quan Smith was taken by the New Orleans Saints at 91. Deep into the third round, UCF star Shaquem Griffin, the linebacker missing his left hand, was still waiting to be selected.9:30 p.m.Orlando Brown Jr. is following his late father into the NFL 鈥?with the same franchise, no less.The former Oklahoma standout was taken in the middle of the third round by the Baltimore Ravens with the 83rd overall pick of the NFL draft.Brown Jr. was projected as a first or second-round pick before a poor showing at the combine. His 14 reps at 225 pounds on the bench press were the fewest of any lineman who lifted at the draft. He also had a slow time in the 40-yard dash.The younger Brown grew up around NFL teams after his dad played more than a decade in the league, starting with the Cleveland Browns before the franchise moved to Baltimore and became the Ravens.Known as “Zeus” at 6-foot-7 and 360 pounds, the elder Brown died of a diabetic condition in 2011 at the age of 40. He returned to Cleveland with the Browns in 1999 before three years out of the game after being partially blinded when hit in the eye by a penalty flag.The elder Brown sued the NFL for $200 million, saying the flag incident prematurely ended his career. He settled the lawsuit, came back with Baltimore in 2003 and played three more seasons.Brown Jr. certainly has his dad’s size. He’s one of the biggest players in the draft at 6-8, 360 pounds.9:20 p.m.With a flurry of trades, New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick accomplished what may have been one of his prime objectives in the NFL draft: Making it impossible for his critics to judge the trade that sent Jimmy Garoppolo to the San Francisco 49ers.Garoppolo had been the heir apparent to five-time Super Bowl champion Tom Brady at quarterback. But with Brady playing at MVP level again last season at the age of 40 [url=http://www.dallascowboysteamonline.com/dan-bailey-jersey]Dan Bailey Cowboys Jersey[/url] , Belichick shipped Garoppolo off to San Francisco midseason for a second-round draft pick, which turned out to be No. 43 overall.Belichick wheeled that pick to Detroit for Nos. 51 and 117. Then he sent the No. 51 pick to Chicago for No. 105 and a second-rounder next year. And he sent the Patriots’ own pick in the second round this year, No. 63, along with the No. 117 to Tampa Bay for the 56th overall pick, which they used to select Florida cornerback Duke Dawson.Asked if the dealing had the added advantage of making it difficult to pin any one player as the guy they got for Garoppolo, director of player personnel Nick Caserio said, “You guys will parse that tomorrow. That’s not our job.”9:15 p.m.New Redskins running back Derrius Guice denied reports of being involved in an altercation during his visit with the Eagles and says he doesn’t know about an NFL Network report that there might be another story coming out about him that could be “embarrassing” to him and the organization.After his slide down the draft ended when Washington selected the LSU product 59th overall, late in the second round, Guice expressed confusion about why he didn’t go as high as projected.“It did surprise me because a lot of the things came out of nowhere and weren’t true,” Guice said Friday night on a conference call with local reporters. “I just didn’t understand why me out of all people because I’m great to everybody, I have a great personality and I just didn’t understand why everything just hit so hard with me out of everybody.”Asked specifically about reports that he was involved in an altercation on his visit to Phi.
