Name: Tyler Cochran
Weight: 206 lbs.
High school: Orchard Lake (MI) St. Mary’s
Class: Fifth year senior
Jersey number: #30
Last year: I ranked Cochran #58 and said he would be a backup safety and special teamer (LINK). He played in twelve games and made 2 tackles and 1 fumble recovery.
TTB Rating: N/A
Cochran has turned into a steady special teams contributor over the past couple seasons. He has played in 15 games during that span with 3 tackles and 1 fumble recovery, which came last year against Rutgers.
So far Cochran has not played safety in a game, and it’s unlikely that he will this season, either. Michigan brought in a few 2020 scholarship safeties with the new signing class, and there are some talented players already in the program.
Prediction: Backup safety, special teamer
