Devonta Freeman – Frank Gore – Marshawn Lynch



Guice is a violent, physical runner that sets the tone for an offense by attempting to punish defenders. He doesn’t have home-run speed or top-end explosiveness, but the LSU product has above-average quickness and an assortment of moves to deploy in the open field.
