Draft Scout Snapshot: A closer look at the Broncos' picks: Round 7/234 -- Zac Dysert, QB, 6-3, 228, Miami (Ohio)...One year after drafting their anointed quarterback of the future in Brock Osweiler, the Broncos might have found his potential backup in Dysert. Questions about accuracy -- particularly a high interception ratio -- and hand size helped knock Dysert down to the last round, even though he broke most of Ben Roethlisberger's records at Miami. A torn hamstring injury kept Dysert from working out fully in recent months, but he said he's "100 percent" and will be ready for rookie camp, which begins May 10. - The Sports Xchange

03/29/13 - 2013 Miami OH Pro Day: Zac Dysert is mid-round QB prospect with ample upside...A workout conducted outdoors in the elements - 25-degree temperatures and 10 mph winds - did little to hurt the intrigue surrounding Zac Dysert in the 2013 NFL Draft.
A total of 22 teams - including quarterbacks coaches from the Cincinnati Bengals, Denver Broncos, New York Jets and Pittsburgh Steelers - were represented at Miami of Ohio’s pro day on March 21. Dysert - who draws an obvious comparison to former RedHawks quarterback Ben Roethlisberger - has a private workout scheduled with the Philadelphia Eagles. According to his draft profile on NFL.com, Dysert’s skill set and college production are similar to Roethlisberger, but he doesn’t quite possess the arm strength and bulk of the two-time Super Bowl winner and 2004 first-round draft choice.
Dysert (6-foot-3 1/8, 227 pounds) went through a positional workout led by 2000 Heisman Trophy winner Chris Weinke, who now trains quarterbacks (including 2011 No. 1 overall pick Cam Newton and current Cleveland Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden). Dysert completed 54 of 64 passes in the workout, which is a good showing when you take into account the weather conditions. Dysert is a mid-round quarterback with a lot of upside, and it will be interesting to see where he gets drafted. - Gil Brandt, NFL.com
03/01/13 - 2013 NFL PRO DAY DATES TO REMEMBER: March 21 - Georgia, Miami (Ohio) ... Miami (Ohio) quarterback Zac Dysert suffered a “slight” hamstring tear in the week before the combine and was unable to perform in Indy, making his pro day even more important. - Dane Brugler, NFLDraftScout.com
02/20/13 - According to Daniel Jeremiah of NFL.com, Miami of Ohio's Zac Dysert won't be able to participate in the athletic testing after suffering a slight tear to his right hamstring on Feb. 11. While Smith and Barkley are the only two quarterbacks that I list among my top 32 prospects, Dysert, NFLDraftScout.com's No. 9 rated passer, is an intriguing talent with midround prospects. The injury, which carries with it a three- to four-week recovery time, doesn't sound serious enough to significantly impact Dysert's draft stock. It could, however, lead to some reshuffling among the "second tier" passers of the draft.
Fortunately for Dysert, scouts have seen him often. The four-year starter and three-time captain overtook Ben Roethlisberger as Miami of Ohio's career passing leader (12,016 yards) and played well when pitted against tough competition. The 6-3, 224 pound Dysert physically looked like he belonged last month at the Senior Bowl. While his skill set is intriguing, Dysert was consistently inaccurate on out-breaking routes, however. While talented, he is certainly a developmental prospect. Dysert is expected to be fully healed in time for Miami's pro day, March 21. - Rob Rang, NFLDraftScout.com
01/24/13 - 2013 Senior Bowl, Quarterbacks...6. Zac Dysert, Miami (OH). While he has good size, his arm has been the most inconsistent of any player here. Of all the quarterbacks he's the one who has made the least amount of impressive throws during the week. He's not consistent throwing downfield which makes him a liability at the next level. The feeling here is that teams would rather try and develop one of the other quarterbacks listed above before Dysert. - Dave Richard, CBSSports.com
