Biography: Former running back who moved to safety his sophomore season. Senior totals included 53/1/3 after 58 tackles as a junior.
Positives: Tough, physical safety best playing downhill. Quick up the field in run defense, has a burst of closing speed, and shows a physical nature to his game. Quickly finds the ball and wraps up tackling.
Negatives: He struggles in man coverage situations and possesses just marginal ball skills. Does not always take proper angles to the action, is late getting to the play laterally.
Analysis: Corniffe is a well-sized defensive back with poor speed for the next level. He's a strong safety prospect and must make his mark on special teams to have any chance of sticking on an NFL roster.
