At Wednesday’s North practice all three quarterbacks looked sharp early throwing against air.  Syracuse’s Ryan Nassib looked the sharpest in terms of anticipation, and later delivered a pretty deep throw to Harvard H-back Kyle Juszczyk.  During early drills, North Carolina State QB Mike Glennon threw behind Oregon State wide receiver Markus Wheaton, who adjusted nicely to make the catch.  Miami Ohio’s Zac Dysert looked more comfortable today than he had all week, and made a couple of strong deep throws during drills, including one to Oregon running back Kenjon Barner.  Unfortunately, later in the practice Dysert held the ball too long and attempted to scramble, and followed that up by losing a fumble under pressure.  Glennon also fumbled in team drills, but not one of the three QBs threw an interception all morning.  They appear to have finally developed some chemistry with their receivers.

On Day Two of North team practices, a couple of linemen stood out once again.  While Central Michigan offensive tackle Eric Fisher generally took on all comers in one on one drills, one player managed to give him some trouble – UCLA defensive end Datone Jones.  Jones impressed those in attendance at weigh-ins yesterday and followed that up with a solid Monday afternoon.  Today he was an absolute monster, beating Fisher – easily the best offensive lineman on the North roster – on back-to-back plays with a swim move and then a bull rush.  In team drills, Jones flew around, at one point appearing out of nowhere to make a stop at the line of scrimmage.  He is making a case for consideration in the top half of the first round in April.

Prior to the North Team practice, much of the buzz surrounded the quarterback trio of North Carolina State’s Mike Glennon, Ryan Nassib of Syracuse, and Miami Ohio’s Zac Dysert.  Unfortunately, none of the three really impressed.  Glennon, who measured in at nearly 6’7 inches tall earlier in the day, had the strongest arm of the three and was the most consistent.  But all three struggled at times, throwing the ball behind receivers, sailing throws high, and getting intercepted.  Dysert threw two bad picks along the sideline that both could have been returned for a touchdown.  Nassib was intercepted by Boise State cornerback Jamar Taylor on a deep pass intended for Marshall wide receiver Aaron Dobson, and followed that up by throwing a complete pass that forced Oregon State’s Markus Wheaton to reach back for the ball.  Toward the end of practice the three took turns rolling left and throwing to the back of the end zone while on the move.  All three made some nice throws during the drill, but Dysert – who looked good while throwing on the run during his college career – punctuated a rough afternoon by tripping over his own feet and falling to the turf.  Now that the nerves are out of the way, the quarterbacks will look to have a better day tomorrow.

Updated: 4/9/13 Staff Writer: Justin Higdon

Most people in the draft community believe that either West Virginia’s Geno Smith or Arkansas’s Tyler Wilson is the top quarterback in this year’s class.  But if they are the top two, who is number three?  One candidate comes from a MAC school in Oxford, Ohio that finished the 2012 season with a 4-8 record.  Zac Dysert never got much help from his supporting cast, and the Redhawks’ offensive system didn’t do him many favors.  But Dysert is talent passer with a strong arm, and quite possibly the best deep ball in the draft.
