Top Traits

Power at POA

Power at POA

Cordell Volson

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.

Hand Power

Hand Power

Cordell Volson

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

Length

Length

Cordell Volson

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.

Prospect Summary

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.

FILM EVALUATION

Written by Drae Harris

Games watched: Youngstown, UNI, SDSU

Best Game StudiedCentral Arkansas (2020)

BalanceHe 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 SetHis 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 ToughnessHe 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 MobilityHis 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. 

LengthSee Above. 

Football IQHe 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.

AnchorHe 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.

VersatilityShowcased 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.
