Strengths: LeFevour is a natural athlete who has prototypical size and untapped potential. He sets up nicely in the pocket, feels the rush, has the ability to buy time with his feet and delivers a catchable pass to his receivers. He's an intelligent signal caller who makes good decisions and is accurate. He plays with a passion, and in addition to being a good thrower, he can beat the opposition with his legs. He's experience and is always trying to improve his craft.

Weaknesses: He has to improve his mechanics and throwing motion; he needs time to develop. He primarily worked out of the shotgun and will have to get used to taking snaps under center. He lacks elite arm strength and has problems making throws to the outside. He doesn’t display patience in the pocket and is quick to tuck and run.

Steuber Says: LeFevour is an accomplished four-year starter at Central Michigan and has the credentials to be a high round selection. But when you study his game and analyze how he projects to the next level, he’s missing many elements to be a starter in the NFL. LeFevour is a solid mid-round, developmental quarterback and could be an asset to a team in the future.
