Projected Draft Position: Fifth round
For a quarterback to succeed in the NFL, he needs to have more than the necessary physical abilities. This is why Miami Ohio's Zac Dysert has an uphill battle to be a difference-maker at the next level. However, a team will give him a chance because he has a ton of raw talent.
Dysert's biggest issue is his inability to process information quickly. Too often, he holds the ball well after his target is open. This problem is made worse when the defense is able to generate a pass rush.
Inconsistency with his throwing mechanics is another concern. Dysert showed a tendency to fall off his throws, not square his body to his target and force the ball into coverage. These all contributed to Dysert's problems with accuracy and ability to sustain drives.
However, he flashes excellent arm strength. When mechanically sound, he can be an accurate passer. Being exposed to better coaching at the next level only increases his potential.
