This is usually reflective of different amounts of tankyness, but it can also show that the one champion has less mobility and thus is unable to flee from further damage when engaged or poked.

Zed usually gets a similar amount of CS than Ezreal. Champions that don't acquire a lot of minion kills normally don't need much CS to be effective.
