Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Varies the speed of his route, using hesitation and shoulder fakes to get the defender guessing.
  • Size limitations are obvious, but he's a tough pound-for-pound blocker.
  • Good burst off the snap to quickly slip past.
  • A savvy, reliable pass catcher with good body control and focus. Soft hands and has the hand-eye coordination to secure wild throws.
  • Can effectively place a block on a pass rusher before starting route by sinking fluid hips and delivering a punch.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • He’ll also have to adjust to getting his head around to locate the ball on shorter routes over the middle.
  • His ability to track the ball is good enough, but Zipperer too often let the ball get into his body downfield rather than snatching it with his hands.
  • Has only average size and strength and lacks an imposing frame.
  • He’s not physically imposing. Zipperer is small-framed and won’t be able to carry much more weight.
