CB Henre' Toliver
Instead of going with an obvious choice and another receiver in JoJo Robinson, the fifth and final biggest impact newcomer is a guy you might not know a whole lot about.
Cornerback Henre' Toliver, a 3-star composite and 4-star 24/7 recruit, has an impressive game and plays a position the Hogs need help at.
As bad as the Razorbacks were on defense against the run, they were just as bad against the pass. Arkansas gave up 235.0 YPG through the air, which ranked 72nd in the country. The defensive backs were beaten all year long and were not nearly physical enough.
Toliver plays a physical style. In man coverage, he plays right up on wideouts and looks to jam them to throw them off their routes. That's something the secondary could definitely use.
Arkansas plays a lot of man coverage, which requires being physical and playing up on your man. There were countless times last season where the defensive backs were giving up to 10 yards of cushion. When they did decide to play up, they were often beat down the field.
Because of the way Toliver plays, he is going to get beat sometimes. But, he has good recovery speed and doesn't panic when a receiver gets a step on him. His instincts and reactive quickness are already better than a number of experienced cornerbacks.
Toliver's best attribute by far is his length, which you can't teach. It allows him to break up passes, make more plays on the ball and cover the bigger receivers.
It might not be early on, but Toliver has all the skills to be a key player in the rotation. Out of all the newcomers in the secondary, he is the most ready and most likely to make a big impact in his first season.
