Zach Potter
SI Grade
3.37
Position: Class:
5Sr
School: Conference: Ht., Wt.:
6-6.5, 279
40 Time:
4.94

BIOGRAPHY: Two-year starter awarded all-Conference mention since his junior season. Senior totals included 47/16/5.5 when he also intercepted two passes. Posted 45/11/2.5 as a junior.

POSITIVES: Potter is a nice-sized defensive line prospect with growth potential. He offers developmental possibilities as either a two-gap defensive end or inside tackle. Potter should only improve as he physically matures and receives more playing time on the field.

NEGATIVES: Marginal speed off the edge and just an average closing burst. Possesses a tall angular build, but must improve his playing strength.

ANALYSIS: Nice-sized prospect who plays with a good degree of athleticism. Moves well on the field, flashes ability dropping off the line, and makes plays in space. Fluid changing direction, and is rarely off his feet. Works his hands throughout the action getting off blocks and makes a lot of plays in the backfield.

PROJECTION: 5-6
