Overview

Guy is a big safety from Kentucky who, not unlike last year's draft gem Randall Cobb on the offensive side, was a defensive jack of all trades for Kentucky throughout his career. He played corner as a freshman before moving to safety for his second and third years, and ultimately ended up at outside linebacker. Projects as a safety in the NFL and has the special-teams ability to contribute early; late-round value.

Analysis

Strengths

Guy is an excellent player in run support, makes a lot of plays off the edge and could be an effective sub-package zone blitzer in his pro career. Drag-down tackler, but usually in position and good with pre-snap reads. Seems to have the savvy and athletic ability to start at various positions.

Weaknesses

As a safety, Guy will struggle early in zone coverage and recovering on deep balls. After playing the last year of his college career in the box as a linebacker, there will be obvious hitches in his technique and transition when aligning 10-15 yards deep as a safety. He lacks instincts when playing the pass and has trouble recognizing when a ball is thrown and triggering his feet to get there.
