Kelee Ringo and Jalen Carter would make fine additions to the Eagles’ defense.
A two-time CFP national champion (2021, 2022) and a Second-team All-SEC nod in 2022, Keelee Ringo will probably best be remembered nationally for his pick-six off of the arm of Bryce Young during last year’s College Football Playoff National Championship Game. His final run with UGA this season has solidified his standing as one of the ten best cornerbacks at the NCAA level however.
Ringo walked into the Dawgs’ final game of the season with 40-plus tackles, two interceptions, and seven pass breakups. There are questions about whether or not he can keep up with shiftier wide receivers at the professional level, but he’ll be a nice addition to the organization that drafts him.
Some scouts have guys like Cam Smith, Joey Porter Jr., and Christian Gonzalez graded higher (among others), so Ringo could be available on day two if Philly adds a corner after Round 1.
Imagine Jalen Carter and Jordan Davis lined up next to one another for the next ten years. Do you see what we mean about looking ahead and daydreaming?
We know the Eagles love to build their roster from the inside and work outward, and Carter at six-foot-three and 310 pounds, is probably the Dawgs’ most pro-ready prospect. He’s been a joy to watch at the collegiate level, and now, with the NFL being the next stop in his football journey, he’s someone that could contribute to Philadelphia’s defense immediately.
He can play as a defensive end in the 3-4 alignment. He can also line up at defensive tackle if the theory is that he’s needed there.
