A three-sport start out of Virginia, Renner is the son of Bill Renner, a former punter for the Green Bay Packers who was also his high school coach.Bryn Renner backed up T.J. Yates at UNC in 2010, Renner took over the starting job the following season. He threw for 2,769 yards and 23 touchdowns. Renner built on that with an impressive junior season in which he passed for 3,356 yrds and 28 touchdowns against only seven interceptions.He appeared poised to solidify himself as a strong draft prospect entering 2013, but his senior season ended after just seven games due to a shoulder injury. Renner finished with 1,765 passing yards and 10 touchdowns, and was not able to secure an invitation to the combine.
He doesn't have an elite arm and will get himself in trouble when forcing throws, but he shows good-enough arm strength for the next level with downfield touch. Renner understands how to find mismatches and exploit them, doing a nice job taking what the defense gives him. His ball placement and on-field leadership need to be refined, but he'll look down the gun barrel and give his weapons a chance to make a play. While he won't "wow" with his physical tools, Renner is an intriguing quarterback prospect who might get a camp look.
