2012 NFL Draft Prospect Scouting Report:
Kevin Zeitler, OG, Wisconsin
If he can work on his reaction time off the snap, there wouldn't be much to critique in his game. Most of his problems stem from the occasions when the defenders gets their hands on him first. When he can drive forward and lean into his block, he can manhandle his man and open things up inside. As a pass protector, he does well to anchor and to hold his ground while absorbing the pass rush. He is one of the better run-blocking prospects in this draft class.
Improving his hand placement (which isn't bad by any means) will make up for what he lacks in athleticism. His footwork is solid, but he is so strong in his lower half that he hasn't yet needed refinement.
His continued development should make him a reliable offensive lineman in the NFL for many years.
