Guy is a big safety from Kentucky who, not unlike last year's draft gem Randall Cobb on the offensive side, was a 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 can contribute early on special teams, giving him late-round value.
As a safety, Guy will struggle early in zone coverage and recovering on deep balls.

What he brings: A versatile player who can line up over the slot at the deep safety position or in the box, but he has some limitations in coverage and will need to be protected in certain situations.
Moved into the new hybrid safety/linebacker position during the spring. Adapted to the new post, which showcased his athletic ability as he made plays all over the field. 2-year starter at safety.
