Overview

Tyler had an up-and-down senior season at USC, which was really a microcosm of his career with the Trojans. He started the year suspended because of an off-field incident in the summer, and then came back to start for the Trojans until he began splitting time with a younger running back. Marc is the son of Wendell Tyler, former UCLA Bruin and L.A. Ram. Marc is a big back who runs with power but also displays finesse in his game. He will need to play special teams to make it early on in his NFL career, but a team could take a shot on him in late rounds to come in and compete for a backup position.

Analysis

Strengths

Tyler is a natural runner who has vision once he gets through the hole. He understands how to keep defenders off him; Marc is a natural with deciding when to side-step and when to run with power. He is a good runner between the tackles and can use his leg strength to drive through tackles. He is deceptively shifty in the open field and can make people miss. In the passing game, he understands how to run routes effectively. He works well as an emergency option when plays break down. He has natural hands and is willing to step in front of linebackers when pass protecting.

Weaknesses

Marc was running at a different speed in the past year. He has constantly dealt with keeping his weight down, and it can effect his movements at times. He doesn't display much of a burst, whether it be coming through the hole or trying to get the edge. He is a smooth mover but has a difficult time getting up to full speed. He will never be a threat to take it the distance.
