Zeitler would be a great value in the second round.
After an impressive combine and pro day performance, Kevin Zeitler's stock is on the rise. It is difficult to gauge where Zeitler will be drafted. Some mock drafts have him going in the bottom of the 1st round while others show Zeitler being drafted late in the 2nd round. Although most experts rank him as the 3rd to 5th best guard available, some experts believe that he will eventually develop into the best guard in the class.
Zeitler will almost certainly be available when the Ravens draft in the 1st round of the draft, but it would seem like a reach to draft Zeitler that early. Baltimore could stand pat in the 2nd round and hope he falls or trade their 1st round pick to move back in to the early part of the 2nd round or trade their 2nd round pick and move up if they feel Zeitler will not fall that far.
Pro Football Weekly had this to say about Zeitler:
"A very smart, steady, blue-collar power blocker who’s capable of eliminating defenders when he gets his hands on them. Can step into a lineup readily but always might have some struggles handling quickness."
