Summary: Zeller has been a solid and consistent big man during his career at North Carolina. He runs the floor as well as any true center in college basketball which shows his athleticism and effort for the a seven-footer. However, his lack of strength and physicality is a concern as he transitions to the next level. With his skill level though, he can be a solid back-up center in the NBA and should garner mid-late first-round looks.
Player Comparison: Dan Gadzuric. Gadzuric had a decent run in the NBA as a backup center, but his lack of physicality and ability to bang down low resulted in him being out of the league. Zeller is more offensively skilled than Gadzuric, but the two are similar due to their relatively solid athleticism and lack of strength. Zeller should have a longer and more productive career than Gadzuric, but has some of the same physical limitations.
Joe Berger is still a Vikings. Also Reiff actually played better on the left side in his career rather than the right side. That part probably doesnt really matter because you wont change that in your opinion just figured i'd share my side (i dont blame you for not changing it because im just some random dude comments in the comments). The Berger one does matter though because that is incorrect information.
I was brought to love football through fantasy football. I'm now trying to better myself as an all around fan and analyst of NFL teams and how they should draft according to player's talent level and scheme/culture fit. This is one of my first attempts at a mock draft with my thoughts behind each of the first round selections (and hopefully more comments on later rounds in the future). Please let me know what you think either in the comments or on Twitter @FantasyOutlaw
