TFY Draft Insider's Tony Pauline noted that Miami of Ohio senior CB Quinten Rollins was "one of the most intriguing cornerback prospects in the nation."

The 6-foot-1, 230-pound Rollins had not played football until this season. Prior to 2014, he was a starting guard for the Redhawk basketball team. Rollins is second on the team leader-board for career steals. As for football, he hadn't been rated by scouts prior to the season for obvious reasons, but he's made up for that in a hurry. Pauline called him "a terrific athlete with a smooth, natural style" and went on to say that "Rollins is flying up draft boards" toward a possible middle-round selection. Rollins has picked off five passes, with nine additional pass breakups, this season. He recently accepted an invite to the Senior Bowl.

Miami (OH) senior QB Andrew Hendrix completed 24 of 49 attempts for 318 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in the school's 42-27 loss to Marshall.

Hendrix opened the game with a fumble int he first quarter, but some might argue he outplayed Rakeem Cato the rest of the way. The Notre Dame transfer looked most comfortable from the gun in empt sets, lobbing passes to receivers along the sideline.

Notre Dame senior QB Andrew Hendrix plans to transfer.

Hendrix has asked for a release from his scholarship after the Pinstripe Bowl and will use his final season of eligibility elsewhere. After redshirting in 2010, Hendrix completed 25 of 58 passes for 360 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions over the past three seasons. The former top recruit was a poor fit for Notre Dame's spread system and may seek out a pro-style offensive scheme.

Notre Dame offensive coordinator Chuck Martin has accepted the head coaching position at Miami (OH), according to CBS Sports' Bruce Feldman.

Martin turned down the Tulane job a few years ago, so this is a solid get for the RedHawks. Martin won two titles at Grand Valley State before joining Notre Dame as their defensive backs coach in 2010. He moved over to the offensive side prior to the 2012 season.

Martin won two titles at Grand Valley State before joining Notre Dame as their defensive backs coach in 2010. He moved over to the offensive side prior to the 2012 season.

Miami (OH) senior T Josh Harvey was ranked by draft insider Tony Pauline as the MAC's best available offensive lineman.

Harvey ranks as the seventh overall draft prospect in the conference, and earns a sixth-round grade from Pauline. Harvey, a physical monster at 6-foot-5, 355 pounds, started at right tackle for the first three games last season before moving to the left side. Writes Pauline: "Large, mobile lineman that's lined up on both the left and right side. Moves very well, technically sound and strong. Needs to polish his game but has an upside."

Broncos selected Miami (OH) QB Zac Dysert with the No. 234 overall pick.

Dysert (6-3, 231) was Rotoworld draft guru Josh Norris' No. 3 quarterback in this class, behind only Geno Smith and Tyler Wilson. A four-year starter and 63.8-percent career passer, Dysert posted a 48:23 TD:INT ratio over his final two seasons. An aggressive downfield thrower who stands firm in the pocket, Dysert's development was stunted as a senior when the Redhawks installed a shotgun-spread offense to compensate for poor line play. He appeared far more comfortable as a junior, playing under center. Dysert has enough arm strength to make vertical throws but his short-to-intermediate placement can be puzzlingly scattershot. He could eventually push Brock Osweiler for No. 2 duties in Denver.

The Sideline View's Adam Caplan tweets that teams like Miami (OH) QB Zac Dysert the more they watch him.

"Word in scouting community on Dysert: More coaches get involved in watching tape, the better teams feel about him," Caplan tweeted. Dysert has a strong arm, is instinctive and at his best working outside of the pocket. However, there are concerns about his decision making and ability to operate within the pocket. We've seen players like him succeed in the past, such as Ben Roethlisberger, but also those that have struggled, such as Jake Locker. It will be interesting to see which city he goes to.

Miami (OH) QB Zac Dysert is visiting the Broncos on Monday.

The Broncos spent a second-round pick on Brock Osweiler last year, but our own Josh Norris prefers Dysert to the former Arizona State product. This does not mean the Broncos aren't sold on Osweiler, but they could be looking at multiple possible replacements for Peyton Manning.

Miami (OH) QB Zac Dysert is scheduled to visit the Jets this week.

Plenty of quarterbacks seem to be generating a good amount of buzz during the draft process, except for Dysert. We aren't sure why and out own josh Norris considers him the third best quarterback in this class. His Senior Bowl wasn't good, tending to sail open targets, but we didn't see that during his college career. Look back to 2011 and you will see a a prospect who is comfortable in tight spaces, can throw on the move, and does not mind testing vertically.
Mon, Apr 8, 2013 09:49:00 AM's Gil Brandt reports Miami (OH) QB Zac Dysert will work out for the Philadelphia Eagles.

There's no set date for when Dysert will work out for the Eagles but he would be an interesting fit. Dysert needs to clean up his footwork and make better decisions but has the raw talent teams are looking for. He has a strong arm, is mobile and instinctive. He does his best work outside of the pocket, which may be why the Eagles are looking at him.

NFL Films' Greg Cosell is very intrigued by Miami (OH) QB Zac Dysert and believes he has more arm talent that Matt Barkley.

"Now he's a little scatter shot, and that is a problem as well." Cosell said. "All of these quarterbacks have flaws. Now, he ran a spread offense so you don't see a lot of downfield throws. But if you look hard enough... you do see some downfield throws, and he has enough arm to make those throws." We prefer Dysert's 2011 tape, when he was able to work from center and utilize the pocket, and our own Josh Norris considers Dysert the third best quarterback in the 2013 draft.

Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden suggested the Bengals could look to draft a backup quarterback.

"With having Andy right now, maybe you look at finding someone who can fit the mold behind him if you are going to look for a quarterback to draft here. Either re-sign Bruce or get another guy," Gruden said. Gruden added that there are players "worth taking a look at" that have size and a strong arm. Author Joe Reedy mentioned Miami (OH) quarterback Zac Dysert as a possibility.

Miami (OH) QB Zac Dysert will not workout at the Combine after suffering a slight tear to his right hamstring during training Monday.

Daniel Jeremiah reported the news and added that Dysert is "expected to be out three to four weeks." We expect him to go through the interview process like every other prospect, but Dysert does have some mobility in and outside of the pocket he will not be able to show off.

ESPN Dallas' Calvin Watkins says drafting a QB would be a "smart thing" for the Cowboys to do.

Watkins starts by saying Jerry Jones' goal should be to accumulate as many picks as possible, but with Tony Romo around "for at least three more years," finding a developmental quarterback should be on the to do list. That player could wind up being a possible replacement, but we haven't seen that type of progression happen very often.
