Dysert for Dinner

Written by Eric Stoner on October 25, 2012


It’s up, over at Rotoworld.

Playing for undermanned Miami of Ohio, Zac Dysert‘s career has gone without much fanfare or notice. A four year year starter and three year captain for the Redhawks, Dysert will end his career by breaking virtually all of the school passing records set by former Miami quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.

From what I’ve seen of Dysert so far, I feel comfortable saying that he’s got the best blend in this class of physical talent, throwing talent, and refined quarterback skills (the functional application of those talents). He’s very far along mechanically. His offense isn’t particularly sophisticated, but it does ask him to do a bunch of different things, and he’s getting a lot of work running West Coast Offense principles. He works under center and in the shotgun. There’s a good mix of drop back and rollout passes.

For a four year starter, Dysert still looks a little rough around the edges, oftentimes getting ahead of himself and trying to do too much to overcome the talent differential between his team and the opponent. Bad drops and a poor running game make it difficult for the Redhawks to sustain offense consistently, but Dysert makes his fair share of spectacular plays along the way.
