OVERVIEW
Guyton has prototypical size and quickness for the defensive tackle position with the type of frame that could be attractive to teams looking for ends to play in a 3-4 defense. He was a reliable player in his senior year for Cal after not starting many games early on because of the team's depth at the position. Guyton is a fast player with a motor that doesn't stop, which has made him an active player in his senior year and given him sixth-round value in the draft.

STRENGTHS
Guyton is very quick off the ball and when maneuvering in tight spaces. He uses his hands well and has good technique. He is fast to the quarterback once in the backfield and can make disruptive plays early and often. He really sets the tempo off the ball and has the ability to quickly blow back linemen. He is excellent in pursuit in the open field, where his speed really shows up. He is a sure tackler who was around the ball often in his senior year.

WEAKNESSES
Guyton could have value as a late-round pick given his collegiate history. He displayed a lot of traits of an early draft pick in his senior year, but his value is limited because of the short amount of time he has displayed it. Although teams understand Guyton's being caught behind first-round picks Cameron Jordan and Tyson Alualu, they will wonder if he's truly the player with the skills he displayed in his senior year, or just a pretender who showed up to play only once his draft status was on the line.
