Tyler Guyton, Oklahoma

Another offensive lineman with limited playing experience in college is Tyler Guyton of Oklahoma. Despite only being a one-year starter for the Sooners, Guyton has been a fast riser on draft boards.

Guyton started his collegiate career at TCU but transferred to Oklahoma after two years when he didn't get the playing time he wanted. He burst onto the scene as a senior in 2023, when he started in 10 games and allowed no sacks all season as a right tackle.

Similar to Mimms, Guyton has exceptional physical tools. He is 6-foot-7 and 328 pounds while displaying elite athleticism and footwork for his size. Senior Bowl director Jim Nagy called him the "most gifted offensive tackle in this draft class".

Guyton's lack of experience could potentially be a turn-off for some NFL teams but that would be an advantage for the Cowboys. A player with his physical and athletic tools would normally not fall to No. 24 in the draft.

Like most young offensive linemen, Guyton thrives in pass protection while struggling a little as a run blocker. He could perhaps take a year to fully develop into an elite tackle at the NFL level but considering his upside, you aren't going to do much better than him with the 24th overall pick.
