Broncos draft quarterback Zac Dysert

If there was any team in the NFL that didn’t need to draft a quarterback, it was the Broncos: In addition to having All-Pro Peyton Manning as the starter, Denver has last year’s second-round draft pick Brock Osweiler as Manning’s heir apparent.

So the Broncos went ahead and drafted a quarterback anyway: In the seventh round of the draft, with pick No. 234, the Broncos selected Zac Dysert, a quarterback out of Miami of Ohio.

Although it seems like a strange place for a quarterback to go, there’s not much harm in spending a seventh-round draft pick on a quarterback. If Broncos boss John Elway thinks Dysert has potential, he might as well grab him as Denver’s No. 3 quarterback for now and see if he develops into something more than a third-stringer some day.

In a down year for quarterbacks, Dysert was the 10th passer to hear his name called.

    I still remember when they drafted that big stiff last year. Guess its not working out that well.

    So much for Elway not being in the quarterback market

    The Redskins will smack the Peytons this season.

    The Bronco’s getting their just Dyserts

    Funny that the biggest “fan” of the redskins has to post on articles about other teams during the draft and PFT hasn’t had an article about the non-existent redskins draft. You better hope last years team can match their effort because they didn’t get better through the draft.

    That’s a lot of value for a 7th round pick. It’s so nice to be able to just take the best player available when your turn comes.

    Anyone ever heard of depth?

  9. inyofaceagain says: Apr 27, 2013 7:11 PM

    Yeah the Redskins are set til 2050 with the roster they have!

    THE REDSKINS will need about four QBs after Shanny gets done running RG3 into into another knee injury.
    In related news, it does look like the Brock, the basketball player, needed a fire lit under his rear end or he is not improving the way HOF QB (and back-to-back Superbowl Champion) thinks he should be.
    Bring on the Skins!

    I don’t even know why the Redskins bothered making any draft picks. Their team is set til 2050 They got the next 40 Superbowls locked up.

    This is a non story. They went BPA with this late of a pick. These guys rarely catch on anyways

  13. gloryfromheaven says: Apr 27, 2013 7:14 PM

    I believe he’s a backup plan if Osweiler becomes a bust. It’s a smart move on Elway’s part to draft a 4th round QB in the 7th round. Now you have 2 young QB’s learning under Manning…

  14. ibreathefootball says: Apr 27, 2013 7:16 PM

    Elway likes him because he looks like him

  15. thesteelers says: Apr 27, 2013 7:22 PM

    God’s team laughs at the horse’s team.

  16. thisonesforpat says: Apr 27, 2013 7:23 PM

    Mr. Elway can as he pleases. I’m pretty sure he would have NEVER taken a knee.

  17. menemonic18 says: Apr 27, 2013 7:43 PM

    And even Peyton could not save Tyler Bray!!

  18. shotgunformation5wide says: Apr 27, 2013 7:54 PM

    Reminiscent of Elway, Deberg and Kubiak … back in the 80’s.

  19. wisewoo says: Apr 27, 2013 8:15 PM

    Denver, You’ve just been John Fox’ed

  20. theuncletodd says: Apr 27, 2013 8:18 PM

    I was hoping the Browns would take a flier on him (like most everyone they draft). I watch a lot of MAC FB, there is potential there–good arm but too slow on the reads

  21. rambowbizz says: Apr 27, 2013 9:06 PM

    pitt lost to denver last year right?

  22. mec693 says: Apr 27, 2013 9:07 PM

    cant believe how far he dropped.. if he gets a chance he’ll be a great qb in this league

  23. granadafan says: Apr 27, 2013 9:12 PM

    I hope he enjoys the bench. Peyton never comes out of games and demands 100% of the snaps in practice.

  24. atwatercrushesokoye says: Apr 27, 2013 10:29 PM

    Yeah cause it makes zero sense that a team wouldn’t want to go into training camp and the preseason with 2 quarterbacks…oh wait, no its completely understandable that a team would draft a flier late and sign an UDFA so that Manning and Ossweiler aren’t throwing every pass. Add to that Manning knows the offense and teammates this year, he’s likely to play a lot less in the preseason (except for the third week) so they need a couple of QBs to play in the games.

    Thank god the Jags have depth at QB with Gabbert and Henne. Another lost season, just this one on purpose versus being inept. Keep Bridgewater safe Louisville.

  26. 16x8equal49ers says: Apr 29, 2013 9:51 AM

    This is Elways team. He is gonna draft a QB every year. He just can’t help it. lol
