Let the comparisons to Steelers' quarterback Ben Roethlisberger begin. Zac Dysert set Miami University passing records for yardage, attempts and completions; breaking each of the marks previously held by—you guessed it— Roethisberger. Standing 6-foot-4 and 230 pounds, Dysert is not only impossible for defenders to corral, but possesses elusiveness in the pocket not typical of a player his size and stature.
Starting to sound familiar?
The 22 year-old has caught the attention of front offices across the league and with the Jets holding the No. 9 overall pick, he could represent ideal competition in training camp or fit in as a possible replacement for embattled signal-caller Mark Sanchez.
With new general manager John Idzik aiming to retool New York's meager depth chart, Dysert has been labeled by scouts as the best available quarterback in this year's upcoming NFL draft.
During Senior Bowl Week, Jets officials were spotted talking with Dysert with Gang Green in hot in pursuit of top flight players to help revitalize a barren roster.
Whether Dysert will end up on the Jets draft board in April is anyone's guess, but if one thing is for certain, the former Redhawk standout is on Idzik's and Rex Ryan's radar.
