02/29/2012 - 2012 NFL COMBINE FALLERS: Markus Zusevics, OT, Iowa: By tearing his pectoral muscle while performing in the bench press in front of scouts, Zusevics' stock could fall further than any other prospect tested at the Combine. The injury not only ended his Combine experience early, it puts into question his availability to play as a rookie. - Rob Rang/NFLDraftScout & Derek Harper/The Sports Xchange

02/25/2012 - Iowa offensive tackle Markus Zusevics tore his left pectoral muscle while performing in the bench press drills in front of NFL scouts Friday at the 2012 Scouting Combine. The injury will require surgery, according to NFL.com's Steve Wyche, and unfortunately ends his Combine prematurely. Even worse, it may put into question his ability to play as a rookie. While Seattle Seahawks' quarterback Tarvaris Jackson was able to throw passes this past season with a torn pectoral, his injury did not require surgery, according to Seahawks' head coach Pete Carroll. On the flip-side, Houston Texans' pass rusher Mario Williams' torn pectoral last season did require surgery and knocked him out for the remainder of the 2011 season. He suffered the injury in the Texans' Week Five loss to the Oakland Raiders, October 9. Zusevics (pronounced ZOOZ-uh-vicks) had been rated as NFLDraftScout.com's No. 15 offensive tackle for the 2012 draft and a possible 5th round prospect. The injury, however, very much clouds his status. - NFLDraftScout.com

01/21/2012 - EAST-WEST SHRINE MONDAY: A pair of Iowa prospects stood out. On the other side of the ball, offensive lineman Markus Zusevics weighed in at 6-5 and 296 pounds with average arm length (33 inches), but his on-field temperament was full-go the moment he stepped onto the practice field. He did a nice job squaring his shoulders to rushers and displaying his raw strength and toughness. Zusevics had to be reminded repeatedly to keep his head and eyes up, but he's off to a good start. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
