Tyler Guyton, offensive tackle, Oklahoma Sooners

Tyler Guyton has been impressive during the week's practices leading up to the Senior Bowl game. The six-foot-seven, 328-pound offensive tackle transferred to the Oklahoma Sooners in 2022 after playing two seasons with the TCU Horned Frogs.

Guyton's draft stock has been rising recently as some mocks have projected him to be selected in the mid-to-late portion of the first round. According to 247sports.com, he has a 10-inch hand measurement, 34 2/8-inch arm length, and an 82-3/8 inch wingspan.

If Guyton has a good performance during the Senior Bowl, his draft stock will continue to rise. His performance at the 2024 NFL Draft Combine will be anticipated throughout this month. Offensive linemen are scheduled to take part in live drills on Sunday, March 3rd at 1 pm EST.

Daniel Jeremiah has the Eagles selecting Guyton with their 22nd pick in his mock draft on NFL.com.

Quinyon Mitchell, cornerback, Toledo Rockets

Quinyon Mitchell is another player who has met with the Eagles before the Senior Bowl. He has also had good practices leading up to the contest and has seen a rise in his draft stock.

While Philadelphia does need to consider drafting defensive backs, the last cornerback they picked in the first round was Lito Sheppard (2002). That doesn't bode well for Mitchell's selection. It's doubtful they would take a defensive back with their 22nd overall pick this April.

Some mock drafts project Mitchell will be taken before the Eagles are on the clock. Check out the following clip, Mitchell mentions Eagles cornerback Darius Slay as an influence that he models his own game after.

There are several good cornerbacks in this year's draft class and Mitchell is among them. According to his profile at NFLDraftBuzz.com, his strengths are in coverage, man/press, and playing zone. He is one of the corners that could make the Eagles consider using their first-round pick on a defensive back for the first time in 22 years.
