2024 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Tyler Guyton (OT – Oklahoma)

2024 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Tyler Guyton (OT – Oklahoma)

With being more than halfway through the College Football season, FantasyPros will be taking a look at early NFL Draft scouting reports before the Combine in March. Here’s a look at Tyler Guyton.

2024 NFL Draft Scouting Report: Tyler Guyton

Tyler Guyton (OT – Oklahoma)

6’7″ – 327 lbs.

Background:

Originally attended Texas Christian, where he redshirted after one appearance in 2020, and totaled 27 snaps in 2021 before transferring to Oklahoma. Last season, he started four games at right tackle (essentially five) after starting the opener on the left side, totaling 401 snaps in which he allowed two sacks. Reprised the starting right tackle job this season.

Positives:

Few offensive linemen in the league have his combination of size/bulk; has excellent weight distribution through his lower body. Fires out with some urgency in the run game. Has enough short-area quickness to not be pigeonholed as a phone-booth guy; able to glide up to the second level and at least force defenders to take some inefficient angles. Able to pull across to the left side and crack opponents. Functional strength is where it should be given his size. Shows solid grip strength inside and keeps his feet churning to sustain and generate push, respectively. Able to generate some torque with his upper body. Generally works hard to stick with his guy through the whistle. Was often trusted to play on an island on passing downs. Plays with good knee bend and effective width in his base; avoids getting too narrow. Actively fires out his hands in pass protection, and is able to place and reset effectively. Drops an early anchor at the line when dealing with power.

Negatives:

2023 has been his first full season as a starter. Can get a bit flat-footed in pass protection, and struggles to get going again and stay connected through the snap at times, especially when working against counters. He has some tendency to lower his head when defending against speed on the edge, and can also lunge when trying to stay engaged in the run game at times. Plays on his heels occasionally in pass protection. At times, understanding of positioning in the run game could be improved with some subtle movements to better wall off defenders from the ball carrier. Has only a little bit of experience at left tackle, and none at guard.

Summary:

A big, tough, strong right tackle with better short-area quickness than anticipated and relatively advanced hand use given his lack of ideal starting experience, he should be among the first handful of blockers chosen in the draft. Could fit in either a gap or zone scheme (the Sooners mix in both relatively equally) and will most likely end up as a right tackle in the pros as well. With time, could be a plus starter if he improves his balance.

Grade: Round 1-2
