LeFevour throws at CMU pro day
By Graham Watson
Former Central Michigan quarterback Dan LeFevour finally took his turn throwing in front of NFL scouts Wednesday.
Dan LeFevour, shown here during an impressive performance at the Senior Bowl, was happy with his pro day on Wednesday.
And while LeFevour wasn’t entirely pleased with his effort, he did say that he didn’t think he hurt his draft stock.
"Obviously, I always want to do better," LeFevour told the Grand Rapids Press. "I wish I could have put a little more on my ball, and been little more accurate. I don't think I hurt myself today."
LeFevour, the NCAA’s career leader in total touchdowns, performed in front of 28 scouts from 21 teams and one CFL team.
LeFevour is rated the fourth-best quarterback in the draft according to ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr., who released his top five players by position today. LeFevour has held steady ahead of Florida’s Tim Tebow, but behind Notre Dame’s Jimmy Clausen, Oklahoma’s Sam Bradford and Texas’ Colt McCoy.
LeFevour took a rash of criticism last month when he decided not to throw at the NFL Scouting Combine. LeFevour said that he wanted to make throwing a priority and concentrate on it exclusively at Pro Day. He also thought he’d fare better throwing to receivers with whom he was comfortable.
LeFevour has spent the past couple months transitioning from a shotgun quarterback to a dropback passer.
