NFL draft season is in full swing.

Washington Redskins President Bruce Allen was spotted at LSU’s pro day Wednesday. Allen and the Redskins reportedly were scheduled to meet with running back Derrius Guice , as well.

In the tweet below, Allen can be seen off to the side. 

Guice is considered one of the best running backs in this year’s class. Penn State’s Saquon Barkley is regarded at the top prospect, but will be gone by the time the Redskins pick 13th.

The Redskins have been open about their desire to upgrade the running back position after averaging just 3.6 yards per carry in 2017. Coach Jay Gruden said last month that using an early pick on a running back was a “good possibility.”

Washington has not drafted a running back in the first round of the draft since 1967.

NFL.com has Guice pegged as a first- or second-round selection. The 20-year-old running back ran for 3,074 yards at LSU, and 1,251 yards last fall.
