After the Senior Bowl, Dan LeFevour's stock status drove up a little bit. Before the Senior Bowl took place, LeFevour was consdered by most of the experts to be a 4th or 5th Round draft pick. After the Senior Bowl his stock has jogged up the draft boards to about the 3rd or 4th Round. I think that LeFevour will be a hard player to gauge on where exactly he will be selected but I think his recent decision not to throw in the NFL Combine could make him slip backwards a bit to where he was before.
Some have questioned LeFevour's arm strength but the one thing that has been a general consensus about the Central Michigan Quarterback is his uncanny accuracy. LeFevour will be an interesting prospect to follow and he could be a very solid back up in the NFL. He does have some potential to start but it will take the right system and situation for that to materialize. With nearly 13,000 Career yards and 102 Touchdowns in 4 years, LeFevour will leave Central Michigan as one of the best players to step foot on a football field for that University.
Below, I'll provide highlights, stats, and a projection on what rounds the Central Michigan Quarterback could be selected.
In this video you will see that LeFevour is money on the sort to mid range throws. He is arguably the most mobile and possibly the fastest top 10 Quarterback coming out this year. He won't have too much adjusting to do at the next level as his footwork and mechanics are fairly solid.

SUMMARY AND PROJECTION:
He is not much of a "project" Quarterback nor is he considered to be in that "elite" class. Like I mentioned above, LeFevour may be the single most difficult player to gauge on where he will be selected. There have been projections all over the map. Based on what I have seen, and based off of his performance in college, I would have to think that he would be a 3rd Round selection. There is a chance he could fall in to the 4th but I don't think it's highly probable.
Possibilities -- 3rd Round; Picks 65-95, 4th Round; Picks 96-127.
