The Denver Broncos have selected quarterback Zac Dysert of Miami (Ohio) in the seventh round of the draft.

The Broncos needed an third quarterback behind Peyton Manning and his heir-in-waiting Brock Osweiler, a second-round selection in last year's draft. Last year's No. 3 QB, Caleb Hanie, was never active on game day and was cut after the season. He signed with Baltimore this month.

Dysert (6-foot-3 and 231 pounds) had a solid showing in the Senior Bowl. He said a hamstring injury he sustained in February is healed.

Dysert said he was ecstatic at the opportunity to learn under Manning, saying ''I wouldn't rather be in any other place.''
