- 1983: 22 catches for 236 yards and 1 touchdown.
Cornwell was selected by the Dallas Cowboys in the 3rd round of the 1984 NFL Draft. He didn't have much experience as a receiver, so he struggled executing the offense. He was mainly used for blocking purposes and was the backup to Doug Cosbie. He was released before the start of the 1986 season.
