Dysert didn't blow anyone away in practice this week, but Daniel Jeremiah of NFL.com did take note of Dysert's pocket presence, saying he works better in chaos rather than on simple drop back plays. Jeremiah added that Dysert is the opposite of Landry Jones and Mike Glennon in this regard.
Dysert has played in a few different offenses during his college career, which has impacted his game. While his decision making and accuracy have been called into question on occasion, Dysert is a big, strong-armed passer who exhibits the ability to avoid the rush and extend plays with his feet.
The first round may be a stretch for Dysert at this point, but he won't likely last too long on the draft's second night. His size, athleticism, arm strength and pocket awareness are all big time advantages he has over some of the other top quarterbacks in this draft class.
The week of Senior Bowl practices may not have been Dysert's best showing, but by all accounts, he was more comfortable once he was facing an actual defense. Lucky for Dysert, no quarterback really took a big step forward during the week, as each had ups and downs throughout the practices. Glennon and Tyler Wilson may have been the most impressive quarterbacks.
All of the quarterbacks will have a chance to really separate themselves in the game on Saturday, which kicks off at 4 p.m. ET on NFL Network.
