Chachere (pronounced shah-sur-ray), the son of a former Nevada-Reno defensive end and Arena Football League linebacker/fullback (Derrick), stayed relatively close to his Fresno State home for college. The familiarity of northern California helped him contribute on special teams (one tackle) as a true freshman. Chachere became a starter in 10 of 13 games played in his sophomore year, including the final eight contests. He posted 39 tackles, two for loss, on the year and led the Spartans with eight pass breakups in addition to intercepting two passes in the final three games. As a junior, Chachere was voted first-team All-MWC and team MVP as he used his NFL size and closing ability to pick off four passes (117 return yards) and break up 14 others. He ranked fourth in the country with 1.5 passes defensed a game. Opponents did not give Chachere as many opportunities to make plays in 2017, as he only had one interception and five pass breakups on the year to go along with 46 tackles, two for losses, in 11 starts and 13 games played.

Overview
Chachere is an athletic outside cornerback with average size and speed and adequate short-area quickness to match routes and challenge throws. His 2016 tape was better than 2017 so how teams weigh those two seasons will be critical. Chachere plays with good intelligence and anticipation and generally handles his job. His issues playing the deep ball mean he needs to run well to prove he has recovery potential. He could be a good value on Day 3 as he has the ability to become an NFL contributor.

  • Has traits to challenge more throws than he did this year
  • Loses some early ground when it becomes a footrace
  • Consistent issues with face guard down the field rather than getting his head around
  • Allowed easier touchdown throws in 2017 when losing balance between combination routes
  • Inconsistent tracking deep ball
  • Loafs a little from backside in run support
  • Willing tackler, but goes a little too low at times
