For the Eagles in this year’s Draft, the top priority for the Team is to get better. and especially on defense. Defensive Coordinator Sean Desai needs to see who he can work with and who he needs to bring in to secure our secondary. That man could be Georgia Bulldogs’ cornerback Kelee Ringo.
About Kelee Ringo
Ringo is 6 ft 2, 205 pounds, and a Sophomore at the University of Georgia. On his High School resume in 2020, he was selected for the 2020 All-American Bowl and was ranked #1 in his class at cornerback. After not playing in 2020 in his First Year at Georgia, he became a redshirt freshman the following season in 2021.
2021 was a memorable year for sure for Ringo. Ringo became a star in his own right when he played all 15 games that season. Kelee finished the season with 34 total stops and breaking up eight passes. Kelee was clutch in the National Championship in 2022 against Alabama. He picked off the Crimson Tide quarterback Bryce Young and took it 79 Yards for a touchdown. This led to Georgia’s first National Championship since 1980.
The next season in 2022, Ringo played again a full 15-game season with 42 total stops. In the Peach Bowl, he forced a fumble against Ohio State, sending them back to the National Championship. He was again a part of another National Title victory this time against TCU.
Strengths & Weaknesses
His strengths include impressive size and athleticism. Kelee Ringo has a lot of speed. He was a track star in High School which has benefited him in his college career. His weakness includes an issue of consistently tracking a deep ball.
Eagles, at number 10 in this year’s 2023 NFL Draft, it could be an opportunity for the Philadelphia Eagles. He will most likely be there at 10 or he could drop to the second day of the Draft. But for the Eagles, Ringo could be a star in this league especially in Midnight Green.
