Cordale plays cornerback and predominantly aligns inside. He is a good athlete with regards to quickness and agility in coverage. In the run game, he is an eager tackler when playing inside. He has a lean frame but there’s no hesitancy to tackle in the box. In the passing game, he has played inside, giving him inside/outside flex. He has good speed and can easily open up and run upfield. He has good length and uses his hips to stay in phase with receivers. His eyes can get him into trouble and learning to toggle between man and zone concepts will be beneficial to him. He does, however, have redeeming value in his size, length, competitiveness and speed.
