Georgia legend Kelee Ringo makes NFL draft decision

Georgia Bulldogs junior cornerback Kelee Ringo has declared for the 2023 NFL draft. Ringo, a former five-star recruit, is considered to be one of the top cornerback prospects in the draft.

Kelee Ringo finishes his career with back-to-back national championships at Georgia. Ringo recorded 42 tackles (37 solo), one forced fumble, and two interceptions during the 2022 college football season.

The 6-foot-2, 210-pound cornerback has ideal size and speed for the position. Ringo is a great tackler and consistently has tight coverage.

Draft Wire projects that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will select Ringo with the No. 19 pick of the 2023 NFL draft. Here’s what Draft Wire has to say about Ringo:

Jamel Dean and Sean Murphy-Bunting are both headed for free agency this offseason, and the Bucs don’t have much cap space to work with, which could leave them needing a new No. 2 corner to pair with Carlton Davis III. Ringo has had a roller-coaster season, but his physical tools and skill set would be a perfect fit in Todd Bowles’ defense.

Yes, Kelee Ringo and the Georgia pass defense had tough games against LSU and Ohio State, but when it mattered the most, Ringo broke up a pass against Ohio State to force a long field goal attempt. Much of Ringo’s passing yardage allowed in the Ohio State game came on plays that were extended.

Kelee Ringo will forever be a legend at Georgia for returning a late fourth quarter interception for a touchdown against Alabama in the national championship.

Ringo announced his intentions to enter the draft and thanked the Georgia football community via Instagram:
