Sergio Orlando Render (born September 13, 1986) is an American football guard who is currently as senior at Virginia Tech. He is considered one of the top prospects available in the 2010 NFL Draft.
High school career
Render attended Newnan High School in Georgia, where he was a two-way lineman and a two-time all-area honoree. Render graded out at 85 percent in his blocking assignments and recorded over 100 pancake blocks his last two seasons.
After redshirting his initial year at Virginia Tech, Render earned the starting right guard job during the 2006 preseason. He played 663 snaps on offense during the 2006 season, and kept his starting job during the 2007 and 2008 seasons. Following the 2009 Orange Bowl he underwent a shoulder surgery and did not participate in the 2009 off-season workouts or spring practice. He will move to left guard in 2009 and is expected to have a strong season.
Render was listed at No. 8 on Rivals.com′s preseason interior lineman power ranking in 2009. He was also named to the 2009 Outland Trophy watch list, but that trophy eventually went to Ndamukong Suh. Render, however, was named to the All-ACC Second Team for the second consecutive time.
