With the draft continuing to approach, time grows shorter and shorter to determine whom the Jets might draft. As you know if you read this website, you see that we profile players that the Jets are interested in, and determine whether or not they would be a good fit for the team.

Conor T. Orr of the Newark Star Ledger has put together a list of the college prospects that have visits scheduled with the Jets, prior to draft day.

Today’s prospect is a quarterback who hails from the same college as Big Ben Rothlisberger. The Jets have not only brought him in for a visit, but according to draft expert Gil Brandt, showed great interest in on his Pro Day. We are talking about QB Zac Dysert, from the University of Miami of Ohio.


Zac measures in at 6’3″, 231 pounds.

Here are his college stats:

2012 302 480 3483 62.9 7.26 68 25 12 36 136.1
2011 295 448 3513 65.8 7.84 71 23 11 46 143.8
2010 222 343 2406 64.7 7.02 82 13 12 26 129.2
2009 247 401 2614 61.6 6.52 50 12 16 51 118.3

Here is some footage of Dysert from 2012 against the Minnesota Vikings:

PROS: My first word with Dysert is “decisiveness”. Once he figures out where he wants to go with the football, he brings it to that directional run, throw…etc. He has good accuracy on short to intermediate throws, and has some of the best footwork I have seen in the class. His ball placement in relation to his receiver is quite good as well.

CONS: His ball sails, sometimes, when he lets a deep one go. He has fairly high INT totals from school, and you see at least one bad one on the tape, due to his ball sailing. He needs to be accurate at all levels down the field. He has a bit of a windup also, and those never work in the NFL. It makes you take too long to release the football, a la Tim Tebow.

However, Zac has been my favorite of this class to watch so far, and would be totally on board with Zac Dysert in the middle rounds.

    It is too bad that his receivers could not catch. I bet if they had been able to, this guy would have had a brilliant college career!

    • TheJetPress

      Probably a very true statement.

    i hope we fix at least 3 , preferably 4 problems before drafting a qb, maybe olb, guard, te and either safety, wr or dl depth. then draft someone who will eventually lead us to the super bowl. how’s that for optimism?

    • TheJetPress

      long term optimisim helps too. Doesn’t it feel Good?

    • TheJetPress

      that is amazing optimism.

    I believe that an LB should be first. Davis Harris did terribly last year because he was the only person in the LB corps who did any work besides Demario Davis and his 51% of the snaps. I think this is the year for an LB as long as it is not Jarvis Jones. Jarvis Jones is going to be very injury prone I think. I think is Dion Jordan is not available, we should try for best player available. I think that shelling out the 2nd round tender on Chris Ivory is worth every penny. It would do wonders for us, and it is a desperate need that we have. I think if we trade Revis we will be fine at the CB position. I do not want to trade Revis, but what other option do we have? I think that this QB is very good, and could be a real asset to the Jets. I think picking him up in the 3rd round would be wonderful. He also looks a lot more comfortable in the pocket than Sanchez does. I personally think we should keep Sanchez for a year, and then draft another QB next year. Spekaing of which, why are we refusing the Bucs 1st rounder next year? We could easily trade up and pick up a sweet QB. Next year is the most loaded QB draft class in maybe five years. Why not nab a QB next year?

    • matr dontelli iii

      tampa bay could very well be drafting in the twenties next year and if things break right we could be too. the teams drafting at the top will very possibly be looking for qbs. if this scenario plays out, the top drafting teams probably won’t be interested in giving us a franchise qb for two late first round picks.

  • TheJetPress

    I believe they hold out for a draft pick from 2013 because a conditional is ho where close to what he is worth. Remember that a trade
    is no guarantee. A pick in the 20′s would be crazy to bring in Ivory for.
