Packers, UDFA. S. Cal.: Above-average size. Average hand size. Son of former 49ers RB Wendell Tyler.
Positives: Good balance after contact. Sets up blockers well. Fair hands. Adequate upper-body strength.
Negatives: Below-average speed and burst. Below-average routes and hands. Has trouble tracking passes over shoulder. Had alcohol-related problems in April 2011. Kicked off team for 2011 for comments about getting paid by school but reinstated in August. Hurt at end of 2011 season.
Projection: Enters one of the thinnest RB depth charts in the league, and that may be his only hope to make a team. Would still be 4th-best RB in camp, at best. Doesn’t have NFL skills.
