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:

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.
