That is exactly what Cover Zero is. Keep in mind, ebfz58, that NFL defenses want to disguise their coverages and you can only learn so much based on the initial alignment (also, that the zone a defense plays may be variable based on the routes receivers run). You can also run a Cover 2 Man, with two safeties deep and man coverage on all receivers. If I'm not mistaken/remember right, the University of Miami ran this package as their base during the early part of last decade.

It's just an example, but you're going to need to assign names to specific blitzes and triggers you'll see, as well as drops and assignments coverages by lineman and backers. The base packages shouldn't too confusing (I think you can just leave those as is), and Andy and Cris are, of course, on point with all of them and know a crapload more about this than I do. Just a suggestion to try to save you a lot of confusion in the long-run.

Reason: Cris credit
Look, man, I know a lot about whatever it is you're talking about.
