Detroit Lions running back Zach Zenner, an undrafted rookie out of South Dakota State, has stated his case for inclusion on the 53-man roster. After four preseason games, no one across the league rushed for more yards than Zenner's 183 on 35 carries (5.23 yards/carry).
Zenner punched in two rushing touchdowns this summer and also displayed some potential as a pass-catcher. He finished the 2015 preseason with eight receptions for 66 yards, including a five-yard scoring strike against the Washington Redskins in Week 2.
"Every preseason game is very important, especially for a guy like me as an undrafted free agent," Zenner said, via the Associated Press. "Those opportunities, not everyone gets them."
The 23-year-old rookie is no stranger to eye-popping statistics. In college, at the FCS level, Zenner eclipsed 2,000 rushing yards in three consecutive seasons.
