Ourlads' Profile:

2012 Guide: What Ourlads NFL Scouting Services said about KEVIN ZEITLER: Wisconsin, 6037 314 5.32. Three-year starter at right guard. A long torso build with good balance and toughness. Plays with a physical attitude and aggressiveness. Well-coached in a zone blocking scheme. Takes good angles to move on an opponent’s movement. Can redirect and shift weight quickly to seal an opponent. Plays in a pro style run-oriented offense with his hand in the dirt. A knee bender who plays with a good base. Can lock on with his strong hands and steer his target. Particularly strong on the second level to seal and block linebackers. Fundamentally sound, physical, tough, and intense in his play. Good body control in space on pulls and trap blocks. Follows through and finishes his blocks. One of his best attributes is his ability to adjust on the run with depth and approach. Kicks out or logs defender. Plays square in pass protection with base, punch, balance, and knee bend. Mentally tough to concentrate and focus on the job at hand. Good first step initial quickness on snap. Good drive step and feel. Seals and builds a wall between ball carrier and defender. Alert to pick up a free blitz runner. A guard only type who will work as a backup center. Senior Bowl notes: Struggled during the week with inconsistent play. He got a look at center when Garth Gerhart and Joe Looney were injured. Aggressive on his base blocks and pulling assignments. OSR:17/48. Second/third round. (A-32 3/4, H-10 1/4, BP-32, 10-1.82).
