Pos: 
Formerly unknown prospect who burst onto the scene in 2018 and now grades as a priority free agent. Patient and displays good pocket presence and overall awareness. Effectively commands the offense, challenges in the vertical game and gives receivers a chance to come away with deep throws. Senses pressure, remains poised and does not panic. Buys as much time as necessary for receivers, knows where pass catchers are on the field and generally makes proper decisions. Keeps his eyes downfield and consistently looks for the open wideout. Sells ball fakes, spreads the ball around and throws with an over-the-top delivery. Throws the ball away and doesn’t take bad sacks.
Neg: 
Does not have a big downfield arm. Doesn’t pick up yardage with his legs. Can be all over the place with his downfield accuracy.
Analysis: 
Cornelius stepped under center as a first-year starter and did a terrific job in 2018. He's a practice-squad prospect who must add bulk to his frame and improve his arm strength if possible.
