Kelee Ringo 2023 NFL Draft Scouting Report
- Coaches’ Freshman All-SEC Team
- Selected to the 2019 USA Today All-USA defense
- Scheme tendencies: Mixture of man and zone coverage
- 2022 projected role: Starting right cornerback
Pros: Kelee Ringo is one of the more explosive athletes at the cornerback position. He checks the boxes as a disruptive press-man corner. Ringo works as the field, boundary, and nickel cornerback. He is battle-tested in the SEC. He possesses the long speed to comfortably carry routes vertically. He’s at his best when he is patient in the contact window using soft-press techniques. His coverage is sticky but physical to cap routes quickly after the release. He does a good job staying in phase with the receiver’s stem. He’s an active and willing participant in the run game and as a tackler in the quick-screen game.
Cons: Kelee Ringo has the ability and potential to be the CB1 in 2022, but technical flaws are apparent. He has the tendency to be overly aggressive in the press. This leads to oversteps while attempting to mirror his opponent’s movements. He will shoot a two-handed punch in the contact window, causing his hips to lock and restricting his ability to transition out of the sequence. Also, his punch timing is inconsistent and can be a detriment.
