Dysert Pick Caps Denver's 2013 Draft

Posted Apr 27, 2013

With their final pick in the 2013 NFL Draft, the Broncos selected Miami University quarterback Zac Dysert.

ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- The Broncos closed out their 2013 NFL Draft by selecting Miami University quarterback Zac Dysert in the seventh round.

Dysert was one of the players that came to Dove Valley for a pre-draft visit, Executive Vice President of Football Operations John Elway acknowledged earlier this week.

"We just wanted to get them in and meet them and see what they’re all about," he said Monday. "If there’s ever an opportunity late in the draft for a guy that we think that come in and develop and turn into a good NFL quarterback, we’re going to look hard at that.”

That's exactly what Denver did, taking a player that in 2012 was selected by his teammates as Miami University football's first-ever three-time captain.

As a senior, Dysert led all MAC quarterbacks with 3,483 passing yards and ranked second in the conference with 312.3 yards of total offense per game.

He is just the 78th player in NCAA FBS history to top 10,000 career passing yards -- and is second in touchdown passes behind only Ben Roethlisberger in school annals.

For his Redhawks career, Dysert had 12,016 passing yards, 73 touchdowns and 51 interceptions.

He becomes the third quarterback on the Broncos roster, joining Peyton Manning and last year's second-round pick Brock Osweiler.

"Thrilled that Zac Dysert from Miami of Ohio was available for us to take," Elway tweeted. "You can never have enough QBs. Talented player and competitor."
