Pos: 
Athletic, explosive defensive lineman who comes off a tremendous season. Displays impressive speed for a big man and easily changes direction. Quick in lateral pursuit and gets outside the box to make plays. Hard-hitting, goes after ball carriers and flashes power. Focused on by opponents, effectively uses his hands and shows a solid closing burst. Attracts a lot of attention in the middle of the line and occupies gaps to allow teammates to make plays on the ball.
Neg: 
Can be easily locked up at the point of attack. Was never the consistent force scouts thought possible. Knocked to the ground too often.
Analysis: 
When focused on his game, Tillery is an impact defensive lineman who can stuff the run, occupy gaps and rush the passer. He possesses good upside and is a scheme-versatile player who will impact a roster if he's focused on football.
