Markus Zusevics, OT/OG Iowa Scouting Report

Markus Zusevics, OT/OG Iowa [HT- 6’5 WT-300]
Positives- Markus has a tall and lengthy frame, with room to add more mass as he gets stronger…He has a quick first step and is rarely beaten off the snap…He has a high football IQ and he can recognize the blitzer and defense…Big heavy hands and a hard punch…He can seal the edge and move out into the flat to extend plays…He can play 4 offensive positions (only is Center) and play them at the next level…Markus sets his feet quick and places his hands quick, keeping defenders from his pads/body.

Negatives- Markus has a tendency to become stiff and rigid off the snap, at times causing himself to be pushed off and out of the play…He only has average at best athleticism and needs to add mass/bulk to stick on the inside…Needs to improve technique, footwork, and hand placement for each position, as he was moved around in College and never became comfortable at any one position.
