Strengths

Tyson is a big and strong interior force. He can hold up blocks well to keep his linebackers clean. He gives good effort in the open field and displays some athletic ability there. He is strong when locking out against engaged offensive linemen and really shows up there when shedding his man. He can get off a block and ignite a powerful step into pursuit, and is a reliable tackler once there.

Weaknesses

Tyson is nonexistent as a pass rusher. Although it isn't a high priority to contribute against the pass as an interior lineman, Tyson will be hurt by the fact that he doesn't have much scheme versatility, and as a 3 and 5 technique player he will be relied upon to create some sort of havoc for quarterbacks. He is a long strider and doesn't work well in short areas, which limits his ability to be effective against the pass. He is flexible, but this shows up more against the run. The major shortcoming in his play is his late reactions to plays, and he is going to need to learn how to read the flow of offensive linemen at the next level to be effective when slanting and diagnosing plays.
