Scouting Report: Dan LeFevour

Quick Take: One of the quarterbacks that caught my attention at the Senior Bowl was Dan LeFevour. Though he came into the game as the 3rd-string QB for the North, he had a solid game going 5 of 10 passing, for 97 yards, one passing TD, 12 rushing yards and a rushing TD. This performance, although not lights out, got me more interested in this QB out of Central Michigan.

Interview with LeFevour:

Senior Bowl profile: Dan LeFevour (via ChicagoTribune)

Scouting Report: Dan LeFevour is slowly rising on teams' draft boards after a solid performance at the Senior Bowl where he was named the North's Most Outstanding Player. Currently, Mel Kiper ranks him #5 on his QB list, and NFL Draft Scout ranks him #6. LeFevour has the body to be effective at the next level standing at 6-3 and weighing in at 229 lbs. His speed and great ability to scramble and break a big run is impressive and led to his 15 rushing TDs in 2009.

LeFevour though is also a quality  passer. In the 2009 season he completed an impressive 69.7% of his passing and threw only 7 interceptions all season. LeFevour is not just a one year wonder either, he consistently put up quality numbers over his four year collegiate career, amassing a total of 12,905 yards passing and 102 passing TDs. The drawbacks to LeFevour are his inexperience with the pro-style offense and he seems to have average arm strength. In the interview that I posted above, he seems like a decent guy as well. He seems to understand where he his weaknesses are (pro-style offense) and seems willing to try and improve. His Senior Bowl performace though showed many scouts that he can handle the pro-style offense a lot better then most originally thought and if he has a good performance at his Pro-Day and Combine, LeFevour might see himself rocketing up draft boards.

Projected Round: Early to mid 3rd

Possible Jaguar?: The Jaguars are seemingly in a perfect situation to draft LeFevour. With his draft stock around the 3rd-round, and the Jaguars obviously on the hunt for a young QB to take the reins from David Garrard, LeFevour might be a perfect option at the 10th/11th spot of the 3rd round. LeFevour would most likely offer both value and
need at this spot and would allow the Jaguars to groom a young QB on the bench for a year or two while David continues to take the starting role.
