Anecdotal: One of the better 43 defensive linemen in the 2016 draft this prospect was the forth ranked recruit out of Michigan when he was recruited and 173 overall by 247Sports. A jack-of- all-trades from Ogemaw Heights High School, he was an all Michigan first team performer, captain of the basketball team, and standout in shot-put during his days before college. A kinesiology major, he is a free spirit who enjoys dancing, singing, nature, health, and fitness.

    Final Thought: Zettel has positives and negatives that make him a solid prospect with room to grow. He can play defensive end and defensive tackle effectively, rushing the passer and stuffing the run. He has shown versatility to play 43 defensive tackle or 34 defensive end. As a prospect Zettel is impressively athletic, he has a nose for the football, good speed, and good agility. Against Ohio State in 2015 he was manhandled by the Buckeyey's interior offensive linemen in run support but was able to use his speed and pass rush moves to generate a strong pass rush up the middle. Zettel is undersized and could have trouble matching up against bigger interior offensive linemen at the NFL level.
