His lateral agility allows him to string plays wide and he has proven to be an effective tackler on the move. Tyler plays with a good motor and is best when he can chase down plays from the backside. He is adequate to find the ball and shows urgency getting to it once he locates the pigskin. King could be more stout at the point of attack, but even when he is engulfed by the offensive tackles, he will continue to fight until the whistle.
He seems to be a player that is similar to Brady Smith. He's not very big, nor does he seem like a great pass rusher, but he seems like a hard worker that tries to overcome his size. He doesn't look like a guy that is going to more than a Brady Smith type on the next level. If he can put things together, he seems like a guy that can start and be a 4-6 sack guy, but nothing more. The fact, that he's going to have to improve in order to reach that plateau doesn't bode well for him.
