Trevor Guyton to Vikings: Video Highlights, Scouting Report and Analysis
A defensive end from Cal and Redmond, Wash., Trevor Guyton came on strong for the Bears in his final year, registering 47 tackles—12 behind the line of scrimmage—and six sacks, terrific production for a player at his position.
He is a prototypical 3-4 defensive end at 6'3" and 285 pounds, and though he isn't likely to put up huge sack totals in the NFL, he will be successful as an anchor on the defensive line.
NationalFootballPost.com sums up its evaluation of Guyton:
A guy who can fill a number of roles on a defense, but he's a naturally powerful kid who can anchor and overwhelm vs. the run game. Needs to improve hands and awareness, but the upside to make a roster.
CBSSports.com highlights Guyton's positive and negative traits:
Positives: Good not great quickness and change-of-direction agility. Chases, using a long spin move to clear blocks. Low, strong off the line. Played with good leverage, even on the nose, despite average bulk. Hustle defender with a good bull rush inside can close and get home when quarterbacks leave the pocket. Praised for attitude and work ethic.
Negatives: Must improve hand use and read-and-react skills. Lacks the violent hands to shed and can be eliminated by double-team blocks. Might be limited to one-gap systems. Agility isn't a question but misses tackles when he doesn't square and break down.
Guyton may not crack the starting lineup in 2012, but he could become a regular contributor, rotating into the lineup to keep the rest of the men fresh.
Guyton has the raw talent to become an effective starter in the NFL, but that doesn't figure to be this year for the Minnesota Vikings. He'll either be stashed as a backup and/or contribute via special teams while he works on his ability to read and react to the professional game.
