NFL Draft 2012 Results: More On Seahawks 6th Round Pick Winston Guy

Winston Guy was a jack-of-all-trades at University of Kentucky. He started out at cornerback his freshman year, moved to safety for sophomore and junior years and finally closed out his college career at outside linebacker. He is projected to be a safety in the NFL but also will log some quality minutes at special teams.

He has a solid knowledge of routes and displays intelligence on the field, which makes up for his lack of flexibility in coverage. He has a tendency to do a more wrap-up style of tackling in the open field than just flat out knocking his opponents to the ground, and this can lead to extra yards often.

Guy has some solid speed with a 4.62 40-yard time. He has good straight-line speed that helps that 40-yard time be a bit quicker at times.

Tough run-defending safety who is best between the numbers. Explodes up the field, effectively uses his hands to protect himself and quickly gets to the ballcarrier. Displays a burst to the action, easily changes direction and aggressively lays his shoulder pads into ballcarriers. Works hard in run defense and is fast bearing down on ballcarriers.

He is a versatile defender who should be an asset on the special teams from the get go for the Seahawks. With a change in tackling style he should be seeing time at various defensive positions for the Seahawks.

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.
