The first thing that draws you to Toliver is his excellent size and length at 6'2" and 185 pounds. He's a big cornerback who still has room to add 10-15 pounds.
Toliver has terrific athleticism to play the cornerback position. He's at his best when he can walk up to a receiver and use his long arms to press and bully them at the line. The Florida native has loose hips and is smooth mirroring and coming out of transition.
Toliver plays with solid instincts and anticipation in off-man coverage, where he displays an impressively fluid backpedal. Plus, his speed allows him to carry receivers deep and roam with range when he's asked to play zone.
Toliver's best asset is his short-area quickness, as he is exceptional at planting and driving downhill to close on a play. His long arms help him get his hands on balls, and he plays with a certain subtle confidence that's needed to thrive on an island.
