Former Bison offensive lineman Cordell Volson says he’s been invited to NFL Scouting Combine

FARGO — Cordell Volson has been invited to the NFL Scouting Combine, the former North Dakota State offensive lineman said Friday, Feb. 4.

Volson said he received the invite a week ago for the Combine, which is scheduled for March 1-7 at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. The 6-foot-7, 315-pound Volson joins wide receiver and Bison teammate Christian Watson at the week-long showcase for NFL coaches, general managers and scouts.

Volson is coming off a strong week at the East-West Shrine Bowl in Las Vegas where he had a notable few days of practice leading up to the college football all-star game that was played Thursday night. He was named to the West all-Shrine Bowl practice team.

Volson played for four NCAA Division I FCS national championship teams in five seasons at NDSU. He becomes the 15th player from NDSU to receive an invite to the Combine, including former Bison quarterback Trey Lance, who was invited to the 2021 combine that was a virtual event due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Volson, who played in 65 games at NDSU, showed his ability to play both guard and tackle during the East-West Shrine Bowl week and drew positive reviews from multiple NFL Draft analysts.

Prior to the East-West Shrine Bowl in Las Vegas, Volson said he was excited to get a chance to play in front of NFL coaches and talent evaluators.

“The NFL has been a dream ever since I was young,” Volson said last week. “Ever since I started playing football. Maybe three or four years into college it started becoming more of a reality. Having that opportunity in front of me, I’m excited.”

Volson added his time at NDSU has helped prepare him to pursue a pro career.

“Over the years, being at NDSU and hearing from all the different types of guys who have been in the NFL … I think it’s really helped prepare me,” Volson said.
