Former Clemson star Hunter Renfrow has quickly been proving that he belongs in the NFL. Since getting drafted by the Raiders in the fifth round of the 2019 NFL Draft, he's been silencing doubters with solid play in practice.
Video footage of a recent Raiders practice showed that the same quickness and elusiveness that allowed him to thrive at Clemson are still effective in the NFL.
On one play, he was able to cut so hard that defensive back Daryl Worley couldn't come close to making a play on the pass.
Renfrow easily gained separation and caught a pass for a long gain.
A walk-on at Clemson, Renfrow spent five years with the Tigers, earning All-ACC honors in 2017 and 2018. He was a part of two national championship teams, catching the game-winner from Deshaun Watson in the 2016 national title game.
In his senior year, he earned the Burlsworth Trophy as the best former walk-on in college football.
After graduating, he entered the NFL Draft pool and found himself selected by the Oakland Raiders with the 149th overall pick.
The Raiders have a very crowded wide receivers room with ten players competing against Renfrow for roster spots. But Renfrow's hard work and skills have allowed him to overcome tough odds before. It should be enough to get him onto an NFL field in 2019.
