6 prospects moving down the Vikings board after the 2023 NFL Combine
By Nik Edlund
Kelee Ringo – CB (Georgia)
Kelee Ringo is one of the more polarizing prospects in the 2023 NFL Draft. There are analysts who think he’ll be one of the first cornerbacks taken, and others who believe he could slip into the second round.
Ringo had a chance to quiet those naysayers, but his performance was one that will keep his evaluations mixed and continue to be divisive as we march toward the draft.
Ringo ran very well with a 4.36 forty-yard dash, which was fifth in his group but didn’t fare so well in the rest of the testing. He posted a 33.5 vertical was fourth worst in his position group, and had a 10’2 broad jump which was fifth-worst. He also struggled to track the ball in his coverage drills.
Ringo is a bit of an enigma. He has some excellent tape but did give up some big plays against Ohio State. His Combine performance was also full of highs and lows, and he failed to put to rest any concerns that a team may have about him.
Ringo now will almost assuredly be available when the Vikings pick No. 23. The question is if they’ll deem that a good value or think he’s more of a Day 2 sort of talent.
