    I liked this pick. Great slot receiver who catches everything. Doesn’t have crazy measurables but is a prime time player excelling when the spotlight is on.

    We got our Julian Edelman

    In the 5th I don't really care. If we took him in the 3rd I would've raged. I wanted Penny Hart but Renfrow is basically the same type of guy. He doesn't need to catch 100 balls, we need him to be a 3rd down option that doesn't drop the fucking ball like Roberts.

    Yeah we always get overly jacked about whatever new slow slot receiver it is that we bring in.

    I'll hope he turns out but I assume this will be a Keon Hatcher/Ryan Switzer/Max Mcaffrey/Josh Harper/Jaydon Mickens type of deal.

    Raiders are running three WR sets most of the time so an underneath guy is almost a de facto starter. Was kinda hoping for something a little more here. I think we’ll regret trading out of Ridley.

    I won’t hate on this guy but not my first or second choice.

    Like I said previously, Renfrow is the antithesis of DK Metcalf....

    Advanced stats attempt to weed out the sleepers among the draft prospects. One particular set of advanced stats highlighted a particular skillset that Clemson receiver Hunter Renfrow possessed that stood above all other receivers in this draft — he is a 5’10” Red Zone Master.

    That’s what SB Nation’s Bill Connelly dubbed him while naming him the number three sleeper receiver in this year’s draft.

    [​IMG]
    The saying goes you need a nice, big-bodied target to score in the red zone. This list could not push back harder on that truism. Metcalf, the biggest of big-bodied receivers, had the second-worst red zone catch rate and the worst per-target average of the group. David Sills V, another big body, scored an absurd number of touchdowns in college (33 in 2017-18) but required a metric ton of targets to pull it off. Notre Dame’s 6’4 Miles Boykin was also on the low end of the catch rate equation here.

    SUMMARY: A four-year starter at Clemson, Renfrow earned the slot receiver duties as a freshman and held that post the last four seasons, also serving as a backup quarterback and punter. He was a model of consistency for the Tigers, regardless of score or situation, and holds the CFB Playoff record with 37 career postseason catches. Clemson literally implemented “third-and-Renfrow” plays in the playbook to capitalize on his small but sticky hands to make clutch adjustments on the football. He is a naturally savvy and skilled route runner, which is the key to his next-level transition. Overall, Renfrow’s size and skill-set make him a slot-only player in the NFL, but with his body control, instincts and dependable ball skills, there is absolutely a place in the NFL for his talent.

    The only guy out of that I thought would've done anything is Switzer and he caught 35 balls for the Steelers last year in a similar role.

    IDK he seems different. Amazing hands and he shone on the big stage. He’s hopefully going to be the guy that you hate playing against, making those move the chain catches that drive you nuts.

    With all the attention that our new shiny pair of WRs are going to get, Renfrow is going to be a machine in this underneath/horizontal stretch system with his quicks and crazy good hands

    I am hyped to see this kid on the field.
