Combine profile: UNC QB Bryn Renner


North Carolina quarterback Bryn Renner suffered a shoulder injury in November but is medically cleared to work out at the scouting combine. 


Name: Bryn Renner

Position: Quarterback

Height/weight: 6-3/228

School/class: North Carolina/Senior

Projected round: 6th-UDFA

Career highlights: Ranks third in team history in passing yards (8,221), completions (668) and attempts (1,005) and is second in passing touchdowns (64). Renner has more 300-yard passing games than anyone in school history. He broke his shoulder in November but he said he’s medically cleared to do all the exercises at the Combine.

Did you know?: Renner played baseball at UNC during his redshirt season but quit before conference play to focus solely on football. 

Quotes: “I think it was tough (going from a pro style offense to Larry Fedora’s spread) but it was also a lot of fun. I looked at the positives more than the negatives. It really didn’t fit me but it made me a better player and a better athlete. To go into this draft knowing that I can do a pro style offense and a spread offense, it’s huge for me and I think teams are looking for that—if you’re versatile and you can adapt.”

“I’ll do whatever it takes to play at this level. If a team wants to draft me that’s great. If I have to go the long and hard way, I’m looking forward to that as well.”

Panthers’ level of interest: Renner should get looked at for a training camp opportunity, and his ability to play in both a pro style and spread will be desirable to teams needing a scout team quarterback. Renner is a mature 24-year-old that could be just that for the Panthers.
