Professional career[edit]

Jacksonville Jaguars[edit]

Cordova was drafted in the 2004 NFL Draft by the Jaguars,[2] but tore his ACL during training camp and was placed on injured reserve. In 2005, he showed great promise during the preseason with five tackles, but aggravated his injury and was again placed on injured reserve.
