Colts Worked Out Miami Ohio QB Zac Dysert

Jamie Sabau

Dysert threw for 12,013 yards, 73 touchdowns, and completed 63% of his passes in four years at Miami (Ohio).

For a team that seems about as set at the quarterback position as anyone can possibly get in the NFL, the Indianapolis Colts seem to be spending a lot of time evaluating signal-callers in this year's draft.

We already have reports of Indy working out Western Michigan quarterback Alex Carder. Now, we've found a report from last week, via Adam Caplan, that the Colts held a workout for Miami of Ohio quarterback Zac Dysert.

Dysert is the 6-3, 231 lb. kid who broke Ben Roethlisberger's school records for passing yards, completions, and attempts. He did not workout at the Scouting Combine in February because of a hamstring injury, but he did impress a few folks at the Senior Bowl.

In four years at Miami of Ohio, Dysert threw for 12,013 yards, 73 touchdowns, and 51 picks. He also completed 63% of his passes.

Dysert is a big, strong-armed quarterback who can push the ball down the field. He seems ideal for a Bruce Arians offense, but Arians is no longer Indy's O.C.

Dysert's negatives comes to us via Matthew Fairburn at SBNation.com:

He was often asked to get the ball out of his hand quickly due to his questionable offensive line play, and those quick decisions led to some mistakes for Dysert. He wasn't helped out by his receivers much, however, as he suffered from a ton of dropped passes and some shaky route running at times. Still, Dysert needs to do a better job of seeing what the defense is doing pre-snap so he can make quick reads in the short passing game and find the open receivers.

That does NOT sound like someone suited to run a West Coast Offense, making it interesting that the Colts took the time to work Dysert out.

Dysert is viewed as a mid-round prospect.
