Gritty, High IQ, Scrappy, Gym Rat, Lunch Pail Guy

Probably says more about Saban than it does about Renfrow. His stats make sense though, Higgins and Ross both went over 900, Rodgers had another 55 for 575. Combine those with Etienne getting 200+ touches and half their games being over at half time. No underneath/slot type is going to pile up numbers in that situation. Think everyone just sees the traits that he has that translate pretty easily. The ability to generate separation underneath and have sure hands. 5 years ago he goes undrafted, now he feels a very specific niche.Like I said, he could be an outlier like Humphries and Beasley that ends up being better in the NFL than he was in college, but his production didn't even really drop off much this year. He went from 600 yards to roughly 550 and his PFF grade dropped slightly. He's just never been a productive or highly rated guy.
The last two years, he put up 7 catches and 41 yards against Alabama combined in his two games against them after being a thorn in their side his freshman and sophomore year.
