At 6′ 4″ and 256 pounds, Tyshun Render is a physical specimen that profiles as an edge rusher or outside linebacker at the next level. Playing his college ball at Middle Tennessee State, Render was snapped up by the Dolphins quickly once the UDFA signing period opened.

Despite his considerable size, Render is off the chart in athleticism, has incredible work ethic, agility, and speed, and has the drive and determination to get to the ball. While he didn’t get an invite to the combine, Render has a timed 4.67 seconds 40 time on his record.
Render was a two-sport star in high school playing tight end and basketball, so his athleticism isn’t in question. He has some issues with play recognition, and his eyes have a tendency to be drawn to the ball rather than trying to read the play.
With 71 solo tackles, 48 assists, and 6.5 sacks Render is quick to the ball and can be extremely disruptive. He appeared in 42 games for the Blue Raiders and forced 3 fumbles while recovering 2.
Render shot to national attention in February when Patriots HC Bill Belichick skipped the NFL combine to watch his workout in Tennessee.
Tyshun Render’s combination of size and athleticism give him a great chance to make the 53-man roster as a special teamer initially as he develops his reading of the game. Expect him to see limited action early on, potentially as an edge rusher in passing downs.
