4 Day 2 cornerbacks the NY Giants can target in the NFL Draft
By Reese Nasser
1. Kelee Ringo, Georgia
Over his two years as a starter in the Georgia Bulldogs' secondary, Kelee Ringo developed into a true playmaker in the secondary. While displaying elite speed, he played a key role in one of the nation's best defenses.
During the 2021 season, Ringo burst onto the scene. He still made his presence felt in a defense full of NFL-caliber playmakers. Over 14 games, he recorded 34 total tackles, 26 solo tackles, one tackle for loss, one sack, eight defended passes and two interceptions.
In 2022, while the Georgia defense lost several major contributors, Ringo once again put together a strong campaign. As Georgia won their second straight National Championship, he recorded 37 solo tackles, 42 total tackles, two tackles for loss, seven defeded passes, two interceptions, and one forced fumble.
Coming in at 6'2" and 207 pounds, Ringo has the size to keep up with even bigger wide receivers. His physical playstyle could be the ideal fit for this Wink Martindale-led defense.
In addition to his size, Ringo has elite speed that elevates his game. At the combine, he recorded a 4.36 40-yard dash. With his blend of size and speed, he has the tools to make an impact from Day 1. Pairing him alongside Jackson could give the Giants a quality cornerback duo heading into 2023.
