Former Sun Devil defensive linemen Renell Wren will now be a Bengal after he was selected with the 125th overall pick on Saturday.

Originally from St. Louis, Wren signed as a three-star recruit in the 2014 recruiting class. He emerged as a force early on in his Sun Devil career. In 29 career games, Wren accumulated a total of 14.5 tackles for a loss and three sacks.

A solid senior season that helped improve ASU’s defensive numbers, paired with his stellar combine performance that included a 5.01 40-yard dash, 30 reps on the bench press and 118-inch vertical jump rose his stock.

Wren departs a defensive line in Tempe that will rely on youth, but he now joins a defensive alongside one of the best defensive tackles Geno Atkins.
