2024 NFL Draft Player Profile: Tyler Guyton

With offensive tackles always in high demand, Oklahoma upstart Tyler Guyton may just be the project piece for your favorite NFL team.  Lacking experience but rated high due to position value, we take a look at where Guyton may land this week. 


Physical Profile:

HEIGHT: 6’8

WEIGHT: 382

HAND: 10 ¼”

ARM: 34 ¼”

WINGSPAN: 82 ¼”


Tyler Guyton demonstrated average to slightly above-average speed at the combine, coming in at plus five seconds in the 40-yard dash with a 1.7-second ten-yard split. He was able to show off impressive vertical and broad jumps in Indianapolis. 


So, with some numbers in mind, what are Guyton’s strengths and weaknesses?


Weaknesses:
  • Guyton’s most glaring weakness is the lack of playing time

  • Sorely missing elite-level leverage, in turn, struggles against top-notch pass-rushing 

  • Typically late off the line, struggles to get to the second level 


Strengths:
  • Great discipline with a high football IQ

  • Impressive dexterity for his size and range 

  • Solid pass protection with great punches and above-average footwork 


Top draft analyst Daniel Jeremiah said this about Guyton:


“In pass pro, he explodes out of his stance and has the range to cover up speed rushers. He is very fluid and smooth in his redirect versus counter rushers.”


Projection:

Tyler Guyton is a clear project piece. He will come into the league with a superb set of skills and abilities. However, his lack of experience and struggles blocking for runners will hurt his draft stock. All things considered, Guyton, though raw, will eventually boost a pass-first team to the next level.
