Strengths

Towering height/size. Terrific natural athleticism. Very fluid for a player his size. Excellent overall strength. Can get the job done in pass protection simply based on size/athleticism. Pass sets are quiet. Stays controlled with an extremely wide base. Wide to get around in general. Shows an ability to clamp onto rushers and stop them. Does a nice job staying poised and won’t overextend to reach delayed rushers. Will use reach/length to push rushers just enough if beaten by a move. Impressive ability to drop a sudden anchor after guiding speed rushes past the quarterback. Intelligent and aware picking up blitzes and stunts. Good quickness/acceleration at the snap as a run blocker. Quick feet getting to various spots despite size. Outstanding speed and acceleration. Very smooth accelerating to get out in space. Shoves are very strong. Impressive accuracy to connect on interior pulls. Able to overwhelm opponents and is tough to get around on the second level. Mostly played right tackle but has started at left tackle.

 

Weaknesses

Has some general balance issues. Will get forward-leaning late in the rush. Could struggle with pure speed rushes and get into more of a run than slide. Leaves the door open for inside moves. Has had his feet slide out from underneath him. Overall hand placement and technique needs to be cleaned up. Doesn’t latch on and dominate like he should at the point of attack as a run blocker. Pushed back when opponents get to his chest.

Conclusion

Overall, Guyton is a towering offensive tackle with tremendous athleticism and movement skills for his size. He needs to clean up his hand placement to become more dominating as a run blocker, but Guyton has plenty of tools to work with and is difficult to get by in pass protection.
