Tall, with a well built frame. Possesses decent athletic ability for his size. Strong arm, can make all the throws. Shows velocity on out patterns and deep routes. Solid footwork and a smooth release. Does a good job of throwing receivers open. Willing to take chances.
Has never put up great numbers. Will make poor decisions that lead to interceptions. There are times when he won't work through his progressions properly, and will simply lock on to his intended target. Injury history.
Renfree is a tall, well-built quarterback. He's made too many poor decisions resulting in interceptions over his career, but he has the arm strength to make all the throws. When this is combined with his experience in an NFL-like offense, it's possible that a team will take a liking to him as a backup quarterback.
Future Hall of Famer

A quality player who will contribute to the team early on and is expected to develop into a starter. A reliable player who brings value to the position.
A prospect with the ability to make team as a backup/role player. Needs to be a special teams contributor at applicable positions. Players in the high range of this category might have long-term potential.
