BIOGRAPHY: Three-year starter who totaled 49/8.5/3 as a senior after 41/4.5/2 the prior year.
POSITIVES: Explosive, dominating interior lineman who takes over games when focused. Solid athlete who displays lateral movement skills, keeps his feet moving on contact and drives blockers off the ball. Plays with good lean and possesses top overall body strength.
NEGATIVES: Must develop more moves as he tends to solely lower his head and bull-rush opponents off the ball. Marginal skills as a pass rusher. Does not chase hard to get involved in the action.
ANALYSIS: A lineman who can be a dominant force on the inside, Tyler is known as a player who turns it on and off. Does not give consistent effort on the field, nor does he properly condition himself off it. Offers a great amount of upside, yet must first get serious.
