- 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
