Shaquem Griffin probably wasn’t expecting to go in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft, but most of the other players who went unpicked while in attendance on Thursday night likely thought they’d be giving NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell a hug.
Running back Derrius Guice is part of that group. The LSU alum was left on the board after the Ravens selected Lamar Jackson to close out the first round.

Three running backs 鈥?Saquon Barkley, Rashaad Penny and Sony Michel 鈥?did get drafted in the first 32 picks. Lanny McDonald Youth jersey Guice will be available when the second round gets underway on Friday night instead and any teams interested in getting him will have all day to offer trades to the Browns for that pick if they are so inclined.
Cornerback Josh Jackson and tackle Connor Williams joined Guice and Griffin in Dallas on Thursday and join them in remaining available for selection in the second round.
That was the coolest thing for me on the visits was being able to see the players, how they interact, and leaving knowing I’m going to fit right in, Darnold said.
Darnold has trained with former Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez, who has advised him about what his future will be like.
Be yourself, just know you’re the face of the franchise, Darnold said Sanchez told him.
Last month, Ross told reporters that his players will be standing for the anthem in 2018, primarily because Ross believes that kneeling is bad for business. It instantly became obvious that Ross had won himself a ticket to the festivities. Later efforts to take back the things he’d said about players standing or kneeling didn’t save him from being required to make a commitment to tell the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth, and then to embark on facing question after question aimed at proving that the NFL collectively decided, in coordinated fashion, that players at the forefront of the anthem protests are as bad for business as the protests themselves.
Rosen would be able to team with former UCLA running back Paul Perkins and offensive lineman Damien Mama, his high school teammate, with the Giants, and also knows the Jets’ Williams well.
Allen developed an immediate bond with new offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates, describing him as a great dude, and said new Giants coach Pat Shurmur and offensive coordinator Mike Shula are fantastic people who have a firm grasp of what’s going on.
