Dan LeFevour (QB)
Featured Prospects
Selected by: Chicago Bears
Round: 6
Pick (Overall): 12 (181)
Pick Analysis: Jay Cutler is entrenched as the Bears' starting quarterback, but Chicago lacks an experienced backup. LeFevour was considered by some to be one of the best quarterbacks in the draft, and is a good value at this point. He will be able to learn from Mike Martz and develop slowly behind Cutler.


LeFevour is a four-year starter at a mid level college football program that flashes a lot of what teams are looking for but will need to develop several parts of his game if he wants to play at the next level. He does not take many snaps from under center and will need to work on dropping to the pocket and reading the coverage as he sets up. He has a decent arm but the ball will flutter, at times, when trying to thread the needle on some downfield throws. When he has time and room to step into his throws he can get some zip on the short to intermediate outs.


LeFevour is high-character player and fierce competitor. Was extremely productive at the non-BCS level. Plays with very impressive intelligence and is a good decision maker. Possesses the release quickness you look for at the next level. Has the arm strength necessary to make most NFL throws. Exhibits very good accuracy in the short passing game.


Spent most of his time in the spread and must gain experience taking the snap from under center. Needs improvement and more consistency throwing the deep ball. Must avoid locking onto receivers and become better at looking defenders off. Does not have the speed to be a threat to pickup yardage with his legs.
