Winston Guy
Winston Guy 6'0 ½”  218 SS/OLB  Kentucky 4.61 [4.69 at the Combine 4.53 at his pro day]   Guy was All-SEC Conference Second Team for the 2011 college football season as voted on by The Associated Press. Guy was a leader in tackles, ranking second in the SEC with 120 stops. The native of Lexington, Ky., also ranked tied for 22nd in the nation in tackles, averaging 10 per game. Guy had eight games of double-figure tackles this season, including a high of 14 at South Carolina and against Tennessee. The senior was named National Defensive Back of the Week for the Western Kentucky game when he had 10 tackles, 2.5 tackles for loss and two interceptions. This is Guy’s first All-SEC selection by league coaches, although he was a second-team pick last year by CollegeFootballNews.com. Guy finished his career at Kentucky with 297 tackles after recording back-to-back seasons of 100 tackles or more the past two seasons.  He is seen by some as a ‘tweener’ he is a better pass defender than most think, but clearly he’s still more effective close to the line of scrimmage.  NFL comparisons Willie Offord and Coy Wire.  I think Guy will be a mid-late round draft selection who will will eventually find his way into a defensive rotation as a SS or perhaps even WLB.
