With their final pick of the draft, the Broncos saw that several quarterbacks remained on the board.
They opted against guys like Arizona's Matt Scott and Tennessee's Tyler Bray in order to select Zac Dysert.
Dysert threw for 12,013 passing yards in his career at Miami of Ohio, finishing as the Redhawks' all-time leading passer, knocking Ben Roethlisberger out of the top position.
This was another case of Denver taking a player they felt should have gone much higher, as some felt Dysert could be as high as a third-round selection.
He was a four-year starter in college and displayed the ability to make almost every NFL throw. He is also a deceiving runner, showing the ability to scramble for first downs.
He isn't fast, but he is a lot like Aaron Rodgers, making something out of nothing when plays break down.
Dysert isn't ready to be a starter at the NFL level yet, but the Broncos grabbed another player they can develop behind one of the best players at that position.
After drafting Brock Osweiler last year, some fans may not have expected the Broncos to bring in another quarterback. They only had two on the roster, though, and taking a guy like Dysert in the seventh round is a no-risk, all-reward move.
Peyton Manning has two or three years left in the league. When he decides to call it a career, expect Osweiler and Dysert to square off in an open competition with the winner becoming the quarterback of the future.
The advantage for that has to go to Osweiler, at least right now. But Dysert is capable of unseating him if that scenario comes to fruition.
