QB Guiton taking it all in

Bills tryout QB Kenny Guiton, who we profiled in our rookie minicamp practice notes on Sunday, is getting a ton of work being the only quarterback in the camp. It’s a far cry from being the backup at Ohio State. Guiton is soaking up as much as he can even though he’s got an awful lot on his plate over these three days of practices.

“It’s a lot to absorb, but at the same time I’m just trying to have fun,” Guiton told Buffalobills.com. “I’m trying to have fun with the guys around me. I’ve got a number four pick that I’m getting to throw to, some guys who have had great college careers. So I’m just trying to have fun. I’m usually a quick learner so I’m learning and just trying to go out and have fun.”

Guiton felt his timing with the receivers was improved on day two of the minicamp. He hit UB tryout player Fred Lee for a long scoring play that covered 50 yards during one-on-ones.

“That’s a big thing, timing with receivers and everything that’s a big thing just to look good. Especially with routes on air, you want to get it down,” he said. “Saturday I kind of got a feel for all the wideouts and they’re all good and they’re all athletes who can get the job done. So I was out there having fun getting them all down. Once I got them down in one-on-ones I think it showed and it was just pitch and catch.”

A closer look at QB Kenny Guiton

Posted by Chris Brown on May 16, 2014 – 2:37 pm

He was Braxton Miller’s backup at Ohio State, so just who is Bills rookie minicamp tryout QB Kenny Guiton?

Guiton appeared in 22 games in his college career as a Buckeye. In his eight appearances in 2013 Guiton completed almost 69 percent of his passes (75-109) with 14 touchdowns and just two interceptions. He also ran for five touchdowns last season.

Most of his passing yards last season came in games against San Diego State, at Cal and against Florida A&M. In fact he started on the road against Cal for an injured Miller, and was 21-32 passing for 276 yards and threw four touchdowns in a 52-34 barn burner victory. His first two touchdown passes went for 90 and 47 yards in that game both to Devin Smith. Guiton also had 14 carries for 92 yards working the read option. He did miss on some other deep pass attempts and had a fumble in the game, but here’s a look as his plays from that game.

At the Ohio State pro day Guiton (6-2 204) ran a 4.78 40-time, had a 31-inch vertical and broad jumped 9-9. His passing delivery is not long, which is good, and he has the arm strength to deliver long passes on a line.
