Rolled Newspaper bearing title: "NFL HOT PRESS"

For a lot of the 2023 NFL Draft process, Oklahoma offensive tackle Anton Harrison was not considered to be a consensus first-round pick. However later in the process, Harrison was rising, and he ended up being chosen in Round 1 by the Jacksonville Jaguars. This year, Oklahoma could follow it up with a first-round offensive tackle in Tyler Guyton, who is Harrison’s replacement. Multiple team sources say they believe Guyton has first-round potential for the 2024 NFL Draft.

The 6-foot-7, 328-pound Guyton is said to be an athletic freak with a special combination of size, speed, length and athleticism. He started five games in 2022 for the Sooners after starting out his career at TCU. In 2021, Guyton played offensive tackle and h-back with the Horned Frogs. NFL team sources say Guyton has all the ability but needs to get more consistent. Considering he has not started a full season yet, Guyton has a lot of upside to grow as he gains experience.

The 2024 NFL Draft is shaping to be a strong year for offensive tackle talent, and Guyton could be a riser in this class. If he continues to impress on the field, he should rise as a workout standout in the months leading up to the 2024 NFL Draft. Guyton is creating a buzz with area scouts, and multiple team sources state Guyton has first-round potential for the 2024 NFL Draft.
