On the Hoof: This kid looks like he has been lifting weights since the age of three and certainly looks the part of a combo inside linebacker/fullback prospect. He is built a little bit like Oklahoma freshman Tom Wort, but even bigger.
Needs Improvement: As an offensive player, you would like to see him work on catching the ball away from his body, thus becoming more of an offensive threat.
Defensively, he needs to work on flexibility because he is pretty straight-line right now.
Most Impressive: He practices just like he looks on film, at 110 percent on every practice snap. Zwinak is not afraid to lower his head and whack his opponent as hard as he possibly can and that is something you can't coach.
Conclusion: He really wants to be an offensive weapon but do not be surprised if he stays on the defensive side of the ball. It is hard to find kids with this much love for contact. Look for him to be playing as a true freshman on special teams and goal-line situations.
