Zeller is incredibly skilled for a legitimate seven footer, which is rare in today's game. He's increased his scoring average from 3.1 to 9.3 to 15.7 and his rebounding average from 2 to 4.6 to 7.2, which shows that he's very coachable. He displays a nice shooting touch, both from the field and the line. His stock got a boost from UNC's late-season success last year, and this year should be no different.
Zeller is a below average athlete, and he's not much of a shot blocker for a man of his size. He is also considered a relatively low-ceiling player due to his age. Regardless of this perception, size sells in the NBA, so Zeller should find a place in the first round. He should be similar to Roy Hibbert at the next level.
