What could Zac Dysert, a seventh-round draft pick in his second pro year, possibly do when it was his turn as the third man in in Saturday's scrimmage? He went 3-of-3 for 57 yards in leading the No. 3 offense to an opening-drive touchdown against the No. 3 defense. Dysert nearly engineered a second touchdown, driving to the 2-yard line.
He was 7-of-7 for 112 yards at that point before throwing away a pass in the end zone on his final play of the day.
Dysert performs as if he is ready to be a starter for other NFL teams.
"I don't know if I'm there yet," Dysert said. "My plan from Day One of the offseason was to keep working to get better and take in what Peyton was doing."
Manning was impressed with his young understudies.
"Brock has continued to get better every year and Zac has made tremendous strides since last year," Manning said. "We've got a really good (quarterbacks meeting) room. We try to help each other. We all get along.
