Sean Renfree: 5 Things You Need to Know About the Duke QB
One of many late-round prospects hoping to be selected in the NFL draft, Sean Renfree's postseason injury has seriously hurt his stock. He is definitely a player who could surprise out of this year's quarterback class, but there are no guarantees.
Here's a look at what you should know about Renfree and his ability to be a part of this year's class.
Full Name: Sean Renfree
Birthday: April 28, 1990
Hometown: Scottsdale, Ariz.
Major: Public policy studies
Renfree will celebrate his 23rd birthday shortly after the draft (hopefully after being selected in the process). The Arizona native traveled across the country for his schooling at Duke and played all four years despite being an interesting prospect for NFL teams.
2012: 297-of-411, 3,113 yards, 19 TDs, 10 INTs, 136.3 rating
2011: 282-of-434, 2,891 yards, 14 TDs, 11 INTs, 126.5 rating
2010: 285-of-464, 3,131 yards, 14 TDs, 17 INTs, 120.7 rating
2009: 34-of-50, 330 yards, 4 TDs, 2 INTs, 141.8 rating
Sean Renfree started for three years at Duke. His statistics improved steadily despite a yardage drop in 2011. His touchdown-to-interception ratio isn't great, but it is positive enough to warrant attention as a potential starter for an NFL team down the road.
Some of Renfree's statistics are doubtless due to a weak supporting cast at a school that isn't known for football.
Weight: 219 lbs.
Arm Length: 32"
Hand Size: 9"

Renfree's shoulder injury in the Belk Bowl ruined his draft stock in some ways because it robbed him of the East-West Shrine Game, the combine and Duke's pro day. Renfree's rehabilitation is going well, but it is unlikely there will be any movement upward in his stock before the draft.
Going off of his statistics from college alone, he's a good prospect. But the timing of his injury could not have been worse.
Statistics from CBS Sports
Sean Renfree, who already has his bachelor's degree in public policy, is pursuing his Master's degree in humanities currently.
Renfree set an Arizona state championship record in high school with a 411-yard, five-touchdown performance in his final prep game.
Renfree, who came out of high school as a well-regarded prospect, was an honorable mention to the 4A2 All-State team during the 2006 season.
"Renfree is a traditional drop back passer and looks the part with a tall, filled out frame. He has a strong arm to easily make all the throws and does a nice job working through his progressions to find the open target. Renfree shows excellent chemistry with his receivers and is a confident thrower, never appearing shy to take chances downfield."
-Dane Brugler, CBS Sports
"Renfree is very technically solid. He has excellent technique and, physically, has everything you could ask for. He's got a big arm that is accurate. His biggest weaknesses can, with proper coaching, be fixed in the film room. I've seen him compared to Joe Flacco."
-Scott Salmon, SB Nation
