Pros

Strong…experience in the 34 and played all over the line in he 34…solid burst off the snap…hard worker…fairly productive…anchors well…good motor and pursuit…good use of hands to fight off blocks…pretty good swim move…will drive offensive linemen right into the backfield when he is one on one…good size with a solid base…motor, doesn’t seem to have any conditioning issues…

Cons

Not an elite athlete…though he holds up well vs double teams, you’d like to see him make more plays vs the double teams…sometimes his leverage…could get his hands up quicker if he’s not getting into the backfield…sometimes loses his lane, doesn’t have great natural instincts…in 2011 (at least through November 4th) production came against “lesser competition (not a problem in 2010, and not really a big issue to me now either).

Round projection: Round 3-4. His versatility will help him, his lack of elite measurables will hurt him.

NFLmocks preseason bio

Fourth team pre-season All-Pac 12 choice this summer by Phil Steele, Guyton has been rock solid on the Cal defensive line for the last couple of years. What stands out right away is that since Cal plays a 3-4, you have to assume there will be NFL teams running that scheme looking to fit him in as a potential reserve, a role that he has been very valuable to the Bears in over the last two seasons. He has accumulated 45 tackles, 12.5 tackles for loss, 5.5 sacks, and a forced fumble as a reserve for Cal, and as a senior is getting more of a chance to be a starter. Shows solid burst off the snap but not an elite athlete. At this point, look for Guyton to possibly be a late round pick

Thoughts

I like Guyton and think he is an underrated prospect. I love the versatility he brings, lining up all over the Defensive line for the California Golden Bears. I love how violent he is with his hands and his non-stop motor. Guyton doesn’t have elite athleticism, which is going to hurt his stock, but the more ameatur scouting I do the more I have come to realize that for defensive linemen, motor and hand usage is a key componet to success at the N.F.L. level. If a player works hard and can keep the offensive lineman’s hands at bay they can have success in the N.F.L. level. I think Guyton is a pretty “safe” prospect (if such a thing exists) and could come off the board sometime late in the second day or early on the third day.

Another question about Guyton could be whether or not he is a one year wonder kind of player

Video

The first video is a performance vs Washington State, and in that game he was absolutely dominant. He’s not always that way though, but you can see a lot of what there is to like about Guyton.
