Power at POA
Power at POA
He has good power at the point of attack. He comes off the ball hard and gets vertical movement in the run game. He also does a good job stopping the bull rush with his toughness and anchor.
I have no reservations about his hands. However, he has drawn some holding penalties due to over aggression. He also demonstrates good latch strength in his hands
His length is good. He offers an ideal wingspan for the NFL game and uses his length as a pass blocker on the edge with effectiveness.
Cordell Volson demonstrates some athleticism while in his pass set and typically plays with good body control. In the running game, he is a nasty, mean finisher. He plays hard from snap to whistle and seemingly wants to end the rep with a knockdown. At this stage, his run blocking is ahead of his pass set. In the passing game, he plays with good latch strength in his hands. He doesn’t have great lateral movement, which will keep him as a right tackle only, but he could develop into an NFL starter with pro coaching.
Ideal Role: Your third tackle with the upside to develop into a starter
Scheme Fit: Zone blocking scheme
Written by Drae Harris
Games watched: Youngstown, UNI, SDSU
Best Game Studied: Central Arkansas (2020)
Balance: He has been on the ground in some of the 2019 exposures. As a result, his balance overall is just average. He also bends at the waist some, which gives him some forward lean.
Pass Set: His pass set is average overall. This is mostly due to having average lateral mobility. He is fluid in his pass set, but playing with a wider base could help this player.
Competitive Toughness: He plays with the demeanor you’d want your linemen to have. He is a mean, nasty finisher who tried to end every rep with a knockdown. He also shows his physical toughness as a run blocker.
Lateral Mobility: His lateral mobility won’t be his best attribute. He will not impress you with his movement skills. However, his toughness and competitiveness help him compete when rushers are the better athlete.
Length: See Above.
Football IQ: He plays with good football IQ. He easily identifies stunts and twists. He can see the games developing and anticipate when to come off when he’s blocking in tandem.
Hands: See Above.
Anchor: He plays with high pad level and is not a great knee-bender. However, I really have no reservations about his ability to anchor at the college level. This could be an issue in the NFL, though.
Power at P.O.A.: See Above.
Versatility: Showcased an ability at the 2022 Shrine Bowl to play effectively four spots along the line. That versatility will certainly aid his stock and help him find the field.
