Default Cody Zeller vertical leap

At the NBA draft combine in Chicago last week, the man with the highest no-step vertical jump in the entire player pool was ... Cody Zeller? True story, and that's not all: Zeller recorded the highest standing vertical of any player taller than 6-foot-9 in combine history. And his regular max vertical measured out at 37.5 inches, 19th highest at the combine.

The same Zeller who struggled against long, athletic defenders during his career, most notably in Indiana's Sweet 16 loss to Syracuse -- and against Temple's Rahlir Hollis-Jefferson in the foreshadowy second round, for that matter -- is the best two-footed big-man leaper in recent NBA history? Beyond winning a national title, there's not much more that Zeller could have done as a collegian. He was fantastic. And yet those measurements make you wonder if he couldn't have been dunking on defenders' heads far more frequently. It's weird, right?
