Two-way lineman who also competed in track and field as a New York prep. Spent two years (2007-08) at Nassau Community College (N.Y.) before choosing Syracuse over Miami (Fla.). Weighed more than 400 pounds upon arriving. Played 10 games in ’09, starting three at right guard. Suspended against Pittsburgh and Louisville (violation of team rules). Reportedly was driving an SUV that was rear-ended by a tractor-trailer at 5:30 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 1, 2009. Tiller was taken to the hospital, but the three teammates in the car with him (including Tampa Bay Buccaneers 2010 fourth-round pick Mike Williams) were unhurt. Police said the truck driver was entirely at fault and no alcohol was involved. Made all 25 starts at right guard over his last two seasons — 13 in ’10 and 12 in ’11. Strained his right hamstring on second 40-yard dash attempt at the Combine.Positives:
Excellent size. Can create a surge in the run game and seeks to finish blocks. Functional short-area, slide pass protector — sets, shuffles and punches. Good anchor strength. Plays hard and competes.Negatives:
Plays very upright and heavy-legged — mechanics get stressed the further he travels. Tends to bend at the waist and will overextend and fall off blocks. Inconsistent technique — footwork needs refinement. Struggled to unlock his hips and appeared very upright in drills at the Combine. Weight has fluctuated in the past and pushed 400 pounds upon his arrival in the program. Character needs to be evaluated.Summary:
Big-bodied waist bender with the sheer size to cover up defenders in the run game and eventually compete for a starting job.
