I must admit that since the senior bowl I really liked Dan LeFevour and I was disappointed to see him drop in the draft.

What made it even worse was that he ended up in Chicago. In a QB-scheme playing to the strength of Jay Cutler who - in my opinion - has a totally different skill set than Dan LeFevour.

I have no clue why Chicago drafted Dan LeFevour and even though he performed pretty well in the pre-season games, he was - of course - cut by the Bears.

The Bengals jumped on Dan LeFevour signing him off the waivers - and LeFevour must be the happiest man being cut.

The Bengals could be the perfect landing spot for Dan LeFevour, landing behind the brother duo, but in a perfect spot to position himself (if performing) to take over after Carson Palmer in 3-4 years. He will be in a franchise where he will have some young receivers to grow with and in a franchise that in 2-3 years will be going through a youth movement.

Although not an expert on the Bengals offensive scheme, it seems like Dan LeFevour has a lot better fit than he did in Chicago. The Bengals have a strong running game that could gain from LeFevours running/scrambling abilities and they have the receivers that would allow LeFevour to play to his strengths in the short dink and dunk game.

As for LeFevours intangibles I think the he has the guts and leadership abilities to give him credit in the Bengals tough guy culture.

In short - Dan LeFevour must be waking up thinking that has been born under a lucky star.
