Oklahoma’s Tyler Guyton is someone who’s been up and down draft boards. At some points in the season, he was a first-rounder while at other moments he was a second-rounder. Nevertheless, he’s a solid player who would be a good pickup in the early-middle rounds.

First and foremost, Tyler Guyton’s size and length is daunting in comparison to most offensive tackles. Because of this, Guyton doesn’t have any difficulty generating power. Still, he doesn’t take anything to chance as Guyton works very well keeping his upper and lower halves in sync to generate as much power as he can. In the run game, he even keeps his legs moving to impose his will as much as he can on those lined across from him. Additionally, in both the run and passing games, Guyton plays with active eyes to block whoever may be a threat. 

However, Guyton begins his stance high. From the snap, he only gets taller and his feet only get narrower. Besides this, Guyton also has trouble getting hands-on first despite his size and length. Because of this, his chest is often left exposed giving inside leverage to rushers. From his narrow base and exposed chest, Guyton often experiences trouble against bullrushers, and push-pull moves, and regularly finds his hands on the outside. Lastly, Guyton looks lost when he pulls on runs. His feet are heavy and he appears to be lost in the weeds as he seems overwhelmed reacting to whom he should block. 

Teams will always covet size and length. However, when a player has a number of areas where they could improve, it’s difficult to project how much a certain organization values the intangibles. Currently, Tyler Guyton has Day 2 written on him. While he has a solid baseline, he’ll be a bit of a project for whoever selects him. 


My Two Cents

While he may not have a first-round projection anymore, I was still expecting more from the former Sooner given that he used to have that designation. As I said, the baseline is there, but he’ll be a project for whoever takes him. I wouldn’t draft him until the middle of the third round at the earliest.
