LeFevour: Strictly a developmental QB
By Kevin Seifert
Does Jay Cutler have a future in Chicago? That was my first question after seeing the Bears draft Central Michigan quarterback Dan LeFevour in the sixth round Saturday.
That was a joke.
ESPN's Mel Kiper considered LeFevour the No. 4 quarterback available in the draft, but he slipped considerably based on concerns with his arm strength and fundamentals. He is strictly a developmental quarterback and not a candidate to get on the field anytime soon.
If anyone has reason to be concerned, it's current backup Caleb Hanie. But if I had to guess, I would think the Bears would plan to keep Hanie at No. 2 and see if LeFevour is worth keeping as a No. 3 on the roster. Last year, the Bears went the season with only Cutler and Hanie on the roster.
