Scouting Report
Playing football at Duke isn't exactly the easiest way to get noticed by NFL scouts - after all, no Blue Devil has been drafted since tackle Drew Strojny in 2004 - but Renfree has caught the eye of plenty of talent evaluators in recent months. Renfree completed nearly 65 percent of his passes in four years at Durham, including 67.3 percent as a senior, and he led Duke to its first bowl game in 17 years. The biggest knock on Renfree is his arm strength, which is far from ideal, but he's tall, well-built and sees the field well. His accuracy in college was no accident - anticipation and timing throws are a major strength, he has a quick release and is capable of moving outside the pocket to elude pass rushers. Renfree suffered a torn pectoral muscle late in Duke's Belk Bowl loss to Cincinnati, an injury that he seems to be fully recovered from but may still concern some scouts. Still, analysts Mel Kiper Jr. and Mike Mayock have been at the forefront of the hype train for Renfree in the weeks leading up to the draft, pegging him as a potential steal in the latter rounds. The arm strength may limit Renfree from becoming a franchise QB in the NFL, but at the very least it seems like he can be a fringe starter or capable backup. He could go as early as the third round, but sometime in the fifth or sixth seems more likely.
