Falcons agreed to terms with No. 249 overall pick QB Sean Renfree on a four-year contract.

A three-year starter at Duke, Renfree posted a 64.7 completion rate and a 50:40 TD-to-INT ratio. With plus size (6'3/219) and excellent feel as a passer, there's some long-term backup appeal here for the Falcons. Renfree will spend this year as the developmental No. 3 QB behind Matt Ryan and Dominique Davis.

Falcons selected Duke QB Sean Renfree with the No. 249 overall pick.

Renfree (6-3, 219) succeeded Thad Lewis under center at Duke and started three seasons for QBs guru David Cutcliffe, completing 64.7 percent of his throws with a 50:40 TD-to-INT ratio. Renfree tore the pectoral muscle in his right (throwing) arm in the Blue Devils' bowl loss to Cincinnati, but should be ready for camp. He's drawn Matt Hasselbeck and Matt Schaub comparisons as a heady if modest-armed passer with accuracy and anticipation. Rotoworld draft columnist Alen Dumonjic studied Renfree on tape and believes he could grow into an NFL starter. Developing behind Matt Ryan will be a big plus.

NFL Network's Mike Mayock has pegged Duke's Sean Renfree as his sleeper quarterback in the 2013 NFL draft.

Mayock pegged North Carolina's T.J. Yates as his sleeper quarterback before the 2011 draft. "He hurt his shoulder on the last snap of their bowl game and might not even get drafted," Mayock said of Renfree. "But he’s got the best anticipation and timing of any quarterback in this draft. Part of it is because he’s got an average arm and has to. (Duke coach) David Cutliffe told me that Sean approaches the game with a work ethic and passion similar to Peyton Manning’s."
