COACHES' BREAKDOWN: Corrado is a savvy assist-machine in the midfield with a high soccer IQ - and, indeed, a high regular IQ, as evidenced by completing his pre-dental track at Indiana. In addition to having an excellent read of the game, however, one coach maintained that Corrado was Indiana's best technical player. Corrado has great vision on the field, but will need to increase his range and get slightly stronger to cope with physical play at the next level. The biggest problem facing Corrado's professional prospects, however, is the question of what position he would play at the next level. Ideally he is a central midfielder or would play one of the outside midfield spots in a 4-3-3, but he likely doesn't have the pace to be an out-and-out winger. Corrado has plenty of skill, but is it enough to convince MLS teams to give him such a high-profile role?
