Penn State redshirt senior RB Zach Zwinak plays "classic, downhill football," according to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

Zwinak isn't subtle in the way he goes about things, but he's been the Nittany Lions' top rusher in each of the past two seasons. "Zwinak has been a model of consistency the last two years, rushing for 1,000 yards as a sophomore and 989 yards last season as a junior," Brugler wrote. "Whether or not he has the quickness for the NFL is debatable, but he plays classic, downhill football with forward lean, low pad level and the attitude that would take him through a brick wall." Zwinak, a highly touted recruit under Joe Paterno who redshirted in 2010, tore his ACL in 2011.

Penn State redshirt junior RB Zach Zwinak is emerging "as a force in the Big Ten," according to beat writer Bob Flounders.

Zwinak was a highly touted fullback recruit under Joe Paterno and redshirted in 2010. He then tore his ACL in 2011 but emerged as a ball carrier the following season and rushed for over 1,000 yards. "Now he's an integral part of O'Brien's diverse offense if not a star," Flounders added.
