While the quarterbacks at the top of the 2013 NFL Draft class leave a lot to be desired, there is one signal-caller that NFL coaches are beginning to like more and more as they his college film. Miami (OH) quarterback Zac Dysert is the name that teams have been buzzing about in the mid-to-late rounds and he could be take by a team with hopes of developing him into their future starter.
Per Adam Caplan:
Word in scouting community on Dysert: More coaches get involved in watching tape, the better teams feel about him.

We can’t say that we are too surprised by this nugget of information.
Dysert is a strong-armed quarterback that is able to make plays outside of the pocket. While some quarterbacks may lose their wits when they are on the move, Dysert is able to stay focused and keep his awareness down the field.
There have been some comparisons between Dysert and former Miami (OH) quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, but Dysert lacks the natural awareness of the game that Roethlisberger has.
When draft day finally rolls around, I’d expect a team with an established quarterback to feel comfortable unloading a fourth-round pick for Dysert and work to develop him into their starter of the future.
