Scouting Report
Because Dysert overtook Ben Roethlisberger as the all-time leading passer in Miami of Ohio history, inevitable comparisons have been drawn between the two. A four-year starter and three-time captain for the RedHawks, Dysert finished his career with 12,013 yards - 19th in NCAA history - 73 touchdowns and 51 interceptions in 46 games. Those accomplishments came despite playing under three head coaches and a combined five different positional coaches and offensive coordinators. While he doesn't possess Roethlisberger's elite arm and bulk, Dysert is solid in both areas, has a similar level of toughness and is considered a better athlete than the Steelers' signal-caller. Although the RedHawks finished 4-8 in his senior season, Dysert's production (3,483 yards, 25 TDs, 12 INTs) nearly matched that of his breakout 2011 campaign. While not among the top quarterbacks available in this draft, Dysert is an intriguing second-tier prospect that has the size and skill set that teams covet. He has the look of an NFL quarterback and is a strong-armed passer with a compact delivery. While not elusive or particularly fast, Dysert is a good athlete and determined runner. He reads the field very well and is adept at maneuvering around the pocket. Dysert needs to work on his footwork as he too often stands flat-footed and doesn't always transfer his weight, leading to poor accuracy. He was unable to participate in any workouts at the combine after injuring his hamstring during a training session but did take part in off-field interviews, tests and medical examinations. He completed 10 of 16 passes for 93 yards and a TD in the Senior Bowl. Something of a work in progress, Dysert could be a value pick for a team in need of a young quarterback and projects as a mid-round selection.
