Hollman could not land a scholarship offer after playing his high school ball in New Jersey and then playing at Milford Academy, a well-known prep school in New York. Toledo took a shot on his talent, offering him a preferred walk-on spot. He redshirted in 2014 and played in just two games the following year, making two tackles. The coaches gave him a scholarship prior to his sophomore season and he responded by starting 8 of 13 games (33 tackles, eight pass breakups). Hollman started all 14 games in 2017 (35 tackles, seven pass breakups) and completed his career with the Golden Rockets by leading the MAC with 12 pass breakups (to go along with 43 tackles and an interception).

Overview
Former walk-on who continues to allow the chip on his shoulder to fuel his tenacious play at cornerback. Hollman hits the height, weight and speed markers and has the athleticism to stay near routes on all three levels as a press corner, but his instincts and ball production are somewhat underwhelming relative to the traits and his age could hurt his draft slotting. Hollman's tenacity and traits make him a worthy Day 3 selection with the ability to work his way up from CB4 into playing time.
Strengths
  • Combines good size with great speed
  • Destroyed his pro day with 4.39-second 40-yard dash, 38-inch vertical and 6.81 3-cone
  • Highly competitive demeanor from press
  • Has lateral foot agility to mirror and stall route timing
  • Recovery speed allows him to wait out receiver's release fakes
  • Aggressive crowding outside release against boundary
  • Face guards to congest top of the route
  • Allowed just 40 percent completion rate in 2018
  • Will range and overlap into deep center from Cover-3
  • Dips and slips around perimeter blocks in run support
  • Fearless tackler who sees what he hits
Weaknesses
  • Will be a 25-year old rookie
  • Has tendency to play man over ball on 50-50s
  • Arms are below desired length
  • Needs better eye-balance between route and quarterback
  • Doesn't play with optimal route recognition
  • Can be baited out of position by combo routes
  • More reactive than anticipatory in his coverage
  • Needs to trust technique downfield to avoid flags in NFL
  • Inconsistent positioning tracking deep receivers

"From the standpoint of traits and upside, he's got it. He's tough and fast, he just needs to work on his fundamentals, but he's going to be a starter in the league." -- Defensive backs coach for NFC team
