During the game they were talking about how some think he is the best ever from the MAC. That would put him ahead of Big Ben, Pennington & Leftwich.

He might rise up the board during the combine/off season like Roethlisberger did.

One of the observations I've made based on the analysis I've been doing of draft comparables is that LeFevour's numbers against top competition (defined as BCS conference opponents) do show a decline from his career numbers against MAC opponents.

This would seem to be perfectly intuitive, but Kevin Kolb, who played four years (as many starts as LeFevour) in C-USA is basically the exact same player against BCS conference competition as he was against C-USA competition.

So, as much as I like LeFevour and think he's a second round value in this upcoming draft, I think his relative lack of success against teams who have a clear talent advantage over CMU is a limiting factor on how great he can be in the NFL. If he comes to the Redskins, he'll be on a team where most defenses he plays will have more talent than his offense, and would have a much different prospectus than if he landed with Pittsburgh or New England.

I've been waiting for your take on him. Do you think this is a guy who could be developed while sitting for a year or 2 and then become a top tier QB?
