Overview

Tocho is the son of Kenyan immigrants, and has travelled to Africa several times. That worldly experience shows up in his maturity level, as he was a team captain and full-time starter as a senior (37 tackles, two for loss, two interceptions, nine pass breakups). He struggled with injuries in his junior year, missing part of three games and being limited in others while only starting three games on the year (20 tackles, one INT, three PBU). Big things had been expected of Tocho that year, as he was the team's Defensive Back of the Year in 2014 after leading the squad with 11 pass breakups (41 tackles, one INT). He was also the Wolfpack's Co-Freshman of the Year in 2012, starting seven times, making 25 tackles, intercepting two passes, and breaking up three others.

Analysis

Strengths

Compact frame with good play strength. Highly intelligent and will be able to digest an NFL playbook easily. Known for work ethic on and off the field. Veteran cornerback who understands his own strengths and weaknesses. Plays with confidence. Has good field awareness from bail coverage and shows good pattern recognition. Limited false steps when transitioning to the throw. Has played both sides of the field and has experience in press, off and zone.

Weaknesses

Average athlete with below average lateral agility. Fears long speed and will bolster his cushion against certain opponents. Short-strider lacking make-up speed when beaten over the top. His jam can be slow and telegraphed giving receivers a chance to scoot by quickly. A little bumpy in his backpedal. Is slow to turn and find the ball with his back to the quarterback. Needs to come downhill stronger in run support. Stays glued to blocks for too long.

Bottom Line

Tocho has good size and is an experienced press corner with a decent closing burst to the ball, but an inability to carry speed down the field could limit his scheme fits. The football intelligence and instincts are good enough but he has to prove he can run.
