Biography: Four-year starter awarded All-Conference honors since his freshman campaign. MAC Offensive Player of the Year after his senior and sophomore campaigns. Passing totals last year included 69.7%/3438/28/7 when he also added 713 yards rushing and 15 touchdowns. Junior totals included 66.8%/2784/21/6 through the air with 5592 yards rushing. Turned in a career performance as a sophomore with 3652 yards passing and 1122 yards rushing to become only the second player in NCAA history the pass for more than 3000 yards and rush for more than 1000 in the same season.
Positives: Athletic college passer with nice size and arm strength. Patient in the pocket, senses the rush and does a nice job commanding the offense. Possesses a nice arm, let's receivers run to the deep throw or puts zip on the short passes. Gets outside the pocket and loses nothing throwing on the move. Strong ball-carrier who picks up yardage with his legs displaying both running vision as well as the ability to break tackles.
Negatives: Inconsistent with just about all his throws. Sprays passes, has receivers slowing up in their routes or getting vertical to grab the ball. Makes questionable passes into covered receivers. Stares down the primary target.
Analysis: At this point in time Lefevour is a terrific athlete playing the quarterback position. He's been ultra-productive for Central Michigan yet needs a lot of work on his overall game before he'll ever line up under center in the NFL. His ability to produce in a variety of ways could entice a team that will call on him for red zone duty.
