NY Giants Round 2 Pick: Kelee Ringo, CB, Georgia

Cornerback may be the most pressing need for the Giants. Adoree' Jackson is the Giants CB1, but the group outside of him is rather unappealing, and that is putting it nicely. That group is currently comprised of Cor'Dale Flott, Leonard Johnson, Darnay Holmes, Aaron Robinson, Amani Oruwariye, Zyon Gilbert, Rodarius Williams, and Nick McCloud.

Enter Kelee Ringo. At one point Ringo was a consensus first-round pick, but he has seen his stock fall a bit due to some inconsistent play. Ringo has star potential, due to his gaudy athleticism. Ringo, who stands at 6-2, 207 pounds, ran a blazing 4.36 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine.

Ringo has a rare combination of elite size and great speed, which makes him an ideal fit for Wink Martindale’s man coverage. Ringo also had a ton of experience playing in man coverage while at Georgia. In the last two seasons, Ringo posted four interceptions. He showed up in the biggest moment for Georgia during the title win over 'Bama, as Bryce Young threw a pick-six to Ringo, which clinched the National Championship for the Bulldogs.

Ringo is ranked 40th overall on ESPN’s Mel Kiper Jr.’s big board, so getting him at No. 57 would be a tremendous value. Being a secondary leader who won back-to-back National Championships is nothing to sneeze at.
