Analysis

Strengths

Sets up with balance. Clean three-quarters release. Can throw with timing and anticipation short-to-intermediate. Understands ball placement -- tries to put throws where only his receivers can make a play. Flashes touch. Tough and competitive. Commands the huddle and shows good on-field demeanor. Three-year starter.

Weaknesses

Lacks ideal height. Arm strength is just functional -- struggles to drive velocity throws on a line. Does not push the ball downfield often and accuracy wanes when he does. Needs a clean pocket to have success -- flustered when his rhythm is broken. Could stand to quicken his eyes. Tends to lock on and force throws into traffic. Slow-footed (not a scramble threat). Lacks ideal intangibles -- judgment, intelligence and preparation should be checked out.

Bottom Line

Renner waited his turn behind Texans 2011 fifth-round pick T.J. Yates, but did not show drastic improvement over the course of his career, which ended with season-ending left (non-throwing) shoulder surgery in early November. Renner, whose arm strength limits his ceiling, lacks exceptional physical traits and will have to compete for a job as a pocket-passing, short-to-intermediate clipboard holder.
