Temperatures in the 30s and wind gusts of up to 20 mph gave a deep chill to the air in Oxford, Ohio on March 21, but it did not stop Miami (OH) QB Zac Dysert from displaying his talents in front of representatives from nearly 20 NFL franchises at Miami of Ohio University’s pro day. Despite the conditions, Dysert impressed NFL teams with his 64 throws, and drew comparisons to fellow Miami (OH) alumnus, Ben Roethlisberger. He completed short intermediate routes, as well as some deep balls.
“I thought it went pretty good,” , director of football at . “Most pro day workouts I do with quarterbacks, you’ve got at least five guys. I wanted to be able to show some deep throws down the field, but it’s hard when you’ve only got three guys.”
Dysert worked with former Heisman trophy winner, Chris Weinke at IMG Academy’s Combine Training Program for several months before his pro day. He put everything he learned into effect, and made a good impression on the representatives in attendance.
Throughout his college career, Dysert was a dynamic passer and set school records at the position. He broke Ben Roethlisberger’s school records for career passing attempts, completions and passing yardage. In addition, in his senior year he led the Mid-American Conference in yards (3483), yards per game (290.3), and touchdowns (25). His college and pro day performance exemplifies his promising future.
