Comparison

Kevin Zeitler New York Giants

A road grader of an interior lineman and one of the most physical guards in the region. Long arms for a 6-3 guard and can physically overwhelm an opponent when he gets his hands on them. Powerful upper body and manhandles opposing tackles at the point of attack. Has quick feet, a strong base and does a nice job getting in to his pass sets. Can get to the second level and make a block on a safety or linebacker and has a serious edge to his game. Plays through the whistle and will drive his man in to the ground. Has the perfect amount of nastiness you like to see in a lineman and has all the tools to be an excellent player at the next level. Projects as an impact upper tier Power 5 starter and potential mid-late round NFL draft pick.
