DOB - SEP 07 1996 Height - 6'4" Weight - 295 lbs
Renell Wren was created in an interior defensive line lab. Listed at 6'4" 295-lbs, Wren has tremendous measureless for an interior defensive lineman. Wren possesses an excellent first step that allows him to beat interior offensive lineman right off the snap. Wren has tremendous arm length and uses it to shed offensive lineman at the point of attack and wrap up ball carriers trying to break through the line of scrimmage. Also uses that arm length to play with great leverage. Wren plays with great explosiveness in his lower half and great power in his upper body which allows him to spend a lot of his time in opposing offenses backfields. Wren has powerful hands that he uses to knock lineman off balance with his bull rush, but also allows him to shed lineman to make plays in the running game. Plays with great pad level, and rarely gets turned in the run game. Due to his measurable's and traits, Wren has scheme flexibility and position flexibility along the interior in 4-3 schemes, and could even fit as a DE in 3-4 schemes.
Very raw when it comes to his technique. For the most part, Wren primarily relied on his size, athleticism, and motor to find success at Arizona State. Did not show many pass rush moves at Arizona State, and at times struggled to counter when his initial rush was held up. Power when rushing the passer can be inconsistent at times.
The 6’4”, 295-lb defensive lineman has tremendous measurables, power, and explosiveness in his lower half that makes him a prime candidate to have an excellent week in Mobile at the Senior Bowl. Wren is an interior defensive lineman that can play at both the 1-technique and the 3-technique in 4-3 schemes but could also work in as a 3-4 defensive end. Wren showcases an incredible first step, and great power in his hands and upper body at the point of attack. Showed the ability at Arizona State to shed and get off blocks to make plays against the run, and push the pocket when rushing the passer. Tough guy to move in and out of gaps due to his size and athleticism. If Wren can work on developing true pass rush moves, he can take that aspect of his game to the next level, and really make himself some money this draft season.
