Zorzi was a defender, mostly a side-back on both sides and occasionally in the center of the first line, despite he played as winger in his early years. Rather than pure defence, his defensive main characteristics were: the toughness in one-on-one duels, the ability in aerial game the made him a dangerous header, the speed, the sense of position combined to great reaction and anticipation ability to stop the long passes. Moreover he had decent technique and was unselfish. He never had a good scoring ability, not even when he played as winger, scoring only 2 time for Milan and never for Sampdoria. The only exception was the 1949-50 season when he scored 12 times for Udinese in Serie B. I don't know about him being a good kicker from the distance or if he was a penalty taker or if he played as defensive midfielder. Therefore I can't say anything about it.
I'd suggest: DEF 78, STA 83 (I don't think he was a player who ran up and down the field to deserve such value, neither I read any description of him that portrayed him as a player with high stamina), RES 84 (his reaction and anticipation were his strongest points), TS and ACC maybe +1, SA and ST high 60s (there's no need he has low 70s there), SP 83 (I'd go for this value for now, unless someone replies and says that he actually had a powerful shot), FKA mid 60s and CUR low 70s (I don't think he was a free kick taker or in general a passer who delivered curled balls). I'd take out DMF and PK Taker for now (same reason as the one given for SP).
