All three North team signal callers showed improvement on Wednesday. How much? What areas did they improve in?

Here's a breakdown of the three quarterbacks from the North team after viewing Wednesday's practice:

Dan LeFevour/Central Michigan

LeFevour still lacks good arm strength and continued to push his passes instead throwing them.

He does move around very well and is able to create functional space to throw the ball, but too often his receivers had to wait for his passes to get there. This issue resulted in passes occasionally getting deflected.

LeFevour has to get more power into his throws in order to get the ball down field better.

Sean Canfield/Oregon St.

This was by far his best session over the three days of practices. Canfield threw the ball with good touch and terrific accuracy. While the ball doesn't come out of his hands with any noticeable velocity, he still was able to put the ball right where his intended target could catch the ball.

He also did a better job with timing with his intended passing options. He tried to lead the receiver to go get the ball. That's a good sign that he understands the passing game and progressions.

After two sub par days, the southpaw passer really helped himself to gain the attention of personnel evaluators.

Tony Pike/Cincinnati

For the most part, Pike had a strong performance during Wednesday's practice session.

Pike clearly has the strongest arm of the three North signal callers. However, his accuracy was a bit inconsistent. Part of the issue is that he's a tall quarterback with a high release point, so his passes tend to sail every now and then.

His footwork was consistent and he was able to make some really solid throws. He made one in particular that was through two defenders on a short route. Those kinds of stick throws are ones that young quarterbacks will be asked to make at the next level.
