High-End Starter Potential
Zach Frazier projects as a Day 2 pick, fitting best within a gap scheme. His solid run blocking, strength, and football IQ position him as a reliable center capable of starting early in his career. Given his strengths and areas for improvement, Frazier's overall grade falls into the Mid-Level Starter Potential (60-64) range. This suggests he is likely to be a solid contributor with the capacity to exceed expectations, possessing some limitations that may cap his ceiling but also displaying qualities that should make him a valuable asset to an NFL offensive line.
PLAYSTYLE & SCHEME FIT
Zach Frazier is a powerful and technically proficient center who thrives in a gap scheme, leveraging his strength, leverage, and hand use to excel in the run game. His wrestling background has translated into excellent grip strength and pad level, making him a formidable run blocker. Frazier's ideal scheme fit would be in an offense that emphasizes power running, where his ability to win at the point of attack and control defenders can be maximized. His pass protection is reliable, thanks to his football IQ and ability to diagnose defensive schemes. However, his lack of lateral mobility and length make him less suited for zone schemes that require extensive movement and reach.
