The Denver Broncos wrapped up their draft with a quarterback, with the 234th pick Denver drafted Zac Dysert from Miami (OH). John Elway said earlier this week that he was happy that the Broncos weren't in the quarterback market. Well, maybe they weren't, but they needed another arm at least for camp.
Dysert is 23 years old 6'3" 231 lbs. he was a redshirted Freshman in 2008. He threw for 100 career touchdowns, including 35 in 2012. In 2010 he lacerated his spleen, but finished his Sophomore season with 2,406 passing yards and 13 touchdowns. He broke Ben Roethlisberger's school record in 2012 becoming the school's passing leader. In his career at Miami (Ohio) he totaled 12,013 passing yards.
He roughed through four different head coaches in five years.Dysert was added to the 2012 Senior Bowl when Matt Barkley did not accept his invitation, prior to the draft he watched film with the Broncos' coaching staff.
Thrilled that Zac Dysert from Miami of Ohio was available for us to take. You can never have enough QBs. Talented player & competitor.— John Elway (@johnelway) April 27, 2013
