Redskins rookie Derrius Guice has already shattered any character concerns anonymous reports tried maligning him with on draft day.

And for the 31 other teams who passed on him, it may prove to be "the biggest mistake of the 2018 draft."

The 59th overall pick will soon get his chance to prove doubters wrong on the field, and he's certainly not lacking any confidence.

When propositioned with a unique request at training camp on Thursday, Guice neither flinched, paused nor second-guessed obliging the fan.

"You can go ahead and put 'Rookie of the Year' if you want to," the fan said, handing over a publicity photo for his autograph.

"You know I'm gonna write that," Guice said. "I'm trying to tell you."

If he follows through, Guice would be the Redskins' first Rookie of the Year winner since Robert Griffin III in 2012.
