A true technician and master of his craft, Zeitler is among the best offensive guards in the 2012 class. A three-year started at right guard for one of the best rushing offenses in college football, he combines experience with ideal size and strength to play along the interior offensive line. Known as a bit of a weight room warrior, it’s no surprise that Zeitler consistently puts his defender on the ground, particularly in the run game. Zeitler will be best suited for a power rushing attack in the NFL, as it not only matches his ability but his personality as well. He has the work ethic and natural ability to be great. I expect Zeitler to be a high 2nd round pick and should be a starter in the NFL from day one.

Hard working. Intelligent. Well-coached. Powerful run blocker. Consistently dominates his opponent in the run game. Weight room warrior. Experienced. Finishes blocks. Technically sound. Great footwork. Strong anchor. Powerful at the point of attack. Scheme versatile but best suited for a power attack. Decent mobility. Quick feet. Sheds defenders and locates secondary target when needed. Understands proper blocking angles.

Struggles with speed rushers a bit. Needs to improve pass blocking. Not elite when it comes to pulling or trapping. Average overall athleticism. May struggle to consistently dominate at the second level in the pros. Average change of direction ability.
