How he fits:

It depends. If he plays receiver, he needs to improve his functional strength, route skills, and overall speed. Once developed though, he would be a tall, athletic weapon for Minnesota quarterbacks to throw to. Another option would be to play strong safety. Tyler has the length, quickness, and big play ability to be the sort of safety Coach Claeys and Coach Sawvel prefer. Just like at receiver he'll need to add more functional strength and speed, but that will come with a regimented program under Coach Klein.
