Alex Smith doesn’t see “real weakness” in Derrius Guice’s game

With the first full week of preseason games upon us, teams have been releasing their first depth charts of the year and several of them have players listed at spots that make you scratch your head a little bit.
One of those is in Washington, where second-round pick Derrius Guice is listed alongside undrafted rookie Martez Carter behind Rob Kelley, Chris Thompson, Kapri Bibbs, Samaje Perine and Byron Marshall.
Given that the team won’t be keeping six tailbacks or cutting Guice, that seems totally out of whack.
It’s all the more misleading once you listen to quarterback Alex Smith talk about his teammate.
Smith said on SiriusXM NFL Radio that Guice has shown an ability to do everything they ask for from a running back.
“I didn’t know anything about him when we drafted him,” Smith said, via the Washington Post.
“You hear all this nonsense, I guess, that’s out there.
The kid has a smile on his face 24/7.
Pass game, protection, certainly he can run the ball.
I feel like he does a heck of a job in protections, I feel like in the pass game he’s a weapon as well.
