CMU's LeFevour ready to follow MAC tradition
INDIANAPOLIS — Central Michigan quarterback Dan LeFevour will work out at the NFL Combine this weekend, but he will not throw to wide receivers. He’ll save that for his pro day on March 24 at Mount Pleasant. LeFevour will participate in the rest of the Combine workouts.
LeFevour did not apologize for the decision. He said the fact he was the first quarterback to sign up to play in the Senior Bowl shows that he is not afraid of competition.
Many of the quarterbacks at the Combine are going the same route as LeFevour who played the spread offense at Central and is adjusting to playing under center.
“Going to the Senior Bowl was a great experience, getting under center 11-on-11 you can really replicate anything but that. That was a great experience for me,’’ LeFevour said on Thursday.
He is well aware that NFL quarterbacks like Ben Roethlisberger, Byron Leftwich and Chad Pennington have given the MAC a good reputation.
“There’s been a lot of guys who have had success from the MAC. I think it really boils down to just having a lot of playing experience and playing in some offenses that allow you to wing it around a little bit and have some experience throwing the ball,’’ LeFevour said.
He’s hoping to add his name to the list.
