With less than three months left for the 2024 NFL Draft, all 32 teams, well, except for the two that have a somewhat important game to play next week, have turned their eyes on the prospects.
Senior Bowl, as always, is an excellent chance for scouts to lay their eyes on potential prizes to bolster their roster for next season. The Philadelphia Eagles, who have three picks in the first two rounds of the draft, are among the teams looking for talent in Alabama as they try to replenish their aging veteran core.
One name that is on Philadelphia's radar is offensive tackle Tyler Guyton from Oklahoma.
Eagles Meeting With OT Tyler Guyton During Senior Bowl
There have reportedly been several offensive lineman standouts in this year's draft class who are expected to be drafted in the first two rounds. The Eagles, who potentially could lose a few key members of their offensive line, are considering replenishing coach Jeff Stoutland's personnel with a high-upside lineman.
Guyton, who was recently mocked to Philadelphia with their No. 22 overall pick, said he's meeting with the team and has been talking to fellow Sooner Lane Johnson.
Despite only being a one-year starter at Oklahoma, Guyton has elite physical and athletic tools. With his towering 6'7" presence, he can bring power and intensity in both pass protection and run blocking. His youth and inexperience can be a concern but Stoutland U can easily get him up to speed. He was called the "most gifted offensive tackle in this draft class" by Senior Bowl director Jim Nagy, after all.
There will be plenty of water under the bridge until April. Perhaps Guyton's standout performance in the Senior Bowl will put him out of Philadelphia's reach in the draft. But he would certainly be a solid high-upside choice for the Eagles come draft day.
