Guyton does not have a lot of experience playing RT. He only has one year as a full-time starter, but his 2023 tape showed a prospect who has a solid foundation at the position with rare length and athletic, efficient footwork. Guyton also has a good sense of how to effectively use his hands in pass protection. 

Overall, Guyton is a higher-level athlete with the elite physical tools you look for, showing snapshots of dominance with his technique and easy, fluid movement in the run game and pass protection. Guyton glided out of his two-point stance in pass protection with an efficient and comfortable kick slide. He has the balance, body control and range to close down the edge, yet he also has the firm base to anchor and control the speed-to-power pass rush. 

Guyton had outstanding snaps in the run game with his quickness off the snap and his easy movement that belied his power on contact, especially on down blocks, but he also generated short-stroke power on base and drive blocks.

Guyton is a strong prospect, but you must understand his lack of experience position will likely mean that he needs coaching and development before he can become a full-time starter. Given that Guyton has only one year of starting experience and given his size, length and movement, it would not surprise me if NFL teams saw him as a LT.


Guyton was a full-time starter at RT for only one season at Oklahoma, and he does not have much experience playing the position. During his last year in high school, he played on the defensive line, and his only start at Oklahoma in the 2021 season came at H-back. Guyton had only 14 starts at OT in his Oklahoma career
