Draft Profile: Bio
Zak Zinter from Buckingham Browne & Nichols High School was rated a 4-star recruit by ESPN and handed a 3-star grade by 247 Sports. Following high school, Zinter opted to join Michigan.

In 2020 as a freshman Zinter saw action in 5 games and played a total of 214 snaps for the Wolverines. He allowed just 3 QB hurries, 3 QB hits, and no sacks while playing at right guard.

As a sophomore in 2021 he played in 13 games and a total of 733 snaps. He conceded 11 QB hurries, 4 QB hits, and one sack while playing at right guard.

In 2022 as a junior Zinter saw action in 13 games and totaled 835 snaps. He gave up 6 QB hurries, no QB hits, and one sack while playing at right guard.
Scouting Report: Strengths
  • Solid positional run blocker who flashes the nasty demeanor and killer instinct scouts covet.
  • As a pass protector, Zinter plays with good balance and holds up against the bull rush. Zinter has strong hands and does a nice job gripping and latching on once he has his hands on the pass rusher.
  • In the run game does a nice job generating a push at the initial point of attack. He can get outside and does a decent job landing blocks in space.
  • A work in progress with some raw tools has a solid blend of length and agility. He has a powerful upper body and does an impressive job using his length, with power behind his initial punch and the grip to grab and move defenders.
  • In the run game, he comes off the snap quickly and is excellent with hand placement. Zinter understands angles, and he displays impressive footwork in moving to the second level, usually getting in position to deliver blocks.
  • Tall with long arms, he has exceptional length and is a violent, aggressive, and precise puncher who can redirect pass rushers.
Scouting Report: Weaknesses
  • Is a little too much of a waist bender, and Zinter doesn’t play with ideal power and functional strength. Most concerning - he often gets caught dropping his head, a bad habit that will have to be corrected.
  • Has enough power in the run game, but at times he seems to lack a mean streak.
  • Doesn’t display the agility and speed to effectively get around as a pulling guard. Zinter generally struggles in space, and he will have a tough time consistently landing blocks on the second level

*Percentile Ranking in Player's Position Group (NFL Combine Historical Data): This percentile reflects how a player's specific statistics rank in comparison to historical performances at the NFL Combine, specifically within their position group. A higher percentile indicates a better performance. For instance, being in the 90th percentile for a particular stat means the player outperformed 90% of their peers in that category.

*Similarity Percentage: This percentage is calculated based on a comprehensive analysis of various factors, including height, weight, 40-yard dash times, on-field performance statistics, and overall player rating. The analysis is conducted against our database of draft prospects from 2021 to 2023. This similarity score helps in evaluating how closely a current prospect aligns with past prospects. It is important to note, however, that this score reflects similarities based on college production and attributes, and does not account for eventual success or performance in the NFL.
