Stefan LeFors   QB   Louisville
Strengths
Stefan just loves to play football. He is a natural leader and does an excellent job with game management. He has an average arm, but shows better arm strength when throwing on the run. He does much better out of the pocket than inside the pocket. Stefan shows some good athletic abilities to play more than one position and will be an asset to the team that drafts him.

 

Needs to Improve

If Stephan wants to remain a QB, he will have to settle for being a back-up. His size and arm strength are the big negatives.

 

Talent Board Round  5

Stefan reminds me a lot of Doug Flutie -- only left-handed. Like Flutie, he can only bring you so far as a QB because if you keep him in the pocket and do not let him run wild, then he has his limitations. As a back-up QB he is perfect because your opponent canít game plan for him and he will drive them nuts on defense with big play after big play. I think that Stefan can be an asset to a team in other ways than just a back-up QB because of his quickness and intelligence. Iím not sure how fast he is, but he is quick and smart and these two talents make me think that he can be used as a slash type player inside the 30-yard line. I think Stefan can be used as a slot receiver, a DB in the nickel-dime packages or as a punt returner and/or a back- up QB. I think this kid has talent, but just not for one position. A jack-of-all-trades/ace of none type of player. Donít be afraid to draft a kid like this -- you will never be sorry. There is a lot of talent in this draft; you just have to be open minded and smart enough to see it when itís in front of you. Stefan LeFors is a leader and a hell of a football player and will give you everything he has when he goes on the field and that, along with his athletic talent, should make him a solid pick on the second day of this draft.
