Dan LeFevour a 6’3″ 230 lbs quarterback from Central Michigan was one of the best quarterbacks in this draft class and I’m really surprised he fell to the sixth round.
In my mind he is a steal for the Bears. He could easily turn out to be one of the best quarterbacks from this years NFL Draft.
LeFovour was rated ahead of Florida’s Tim Tebow by some experts and as a sophomore he joined Texas’ Vince Young as the only quarterbacks in NCAA history to pass for 3,000 yards and rush for more than 1,000 in the same season. LeFovour has the most total touchdowns in NCAA history.
He doesn’t have the greatest arm and he played a spread offense at Central Michigan which are two negatives. But some positives are he can feel the pressure and he can run the ball very well.
Here are his stats from his four years at Central Michigan:
LeFovour is a native of Downers Grove, Illinois so I’m sure he excited to be picked by the Bears. Lets just hope he doesn’t turn out like the last player the Bears drafted from Central Michigan, Dan Bazuin. LeFovour should be able to learn under Jay Cutler and Mike Martz and possibly compete Caleb Hanie for the backup QB job.
