Cordell Volson OT North Dakota State Scouting Report

Position rank: 16
40-yard dash time: 5.37-seconds
Height: 6-7, Weight: 313 lbs
Strengths
  • Anchors against larger defenders in the middle; resets hands to maintain distance. Athletic enough to help on nose tackle then pick up twist or late blitzer. Mirrors quick interior rushers. Looks to help the center when uncovered.
  • Effective in space and usually drops his hips to get leverage and sustain against shorter defenders.
  • Finishes and doesn't quit; competitor with a positive attitude and leadership traits that coaches admire.
  • Plays with appropriate wide base and intelligence, instincts and agility to seal the edge. Aggressive extending with power to punch and looks comfortable in space.
  • Dips shoulder and moves his feet to get outside leverage when needed. Strong and low coming out of his stance, effective in short-yardage situations.
Weaknesses
  • Isn't an elite quick-twitch blocker and his height causes him to be out-quicked. Leaks inside pressure when his technique gets sloppy.
  • Loses leverage battles and plays with high pad level. Can be late off the snap.
  • Needs to work on his technique in pass protection, using more consistent leverage and continuing to move his feet.
  • Whiffs on blocks after beaten initially and lacks range and lateral quickness. Plays too high and without proper leverage, pad level and can be passive.
  • Height can be a detriment in short-yardage, defender can get under his pads to hold the line.
