A 6-foot-2 corner, Ringo offers size to go along with blazing speed, running a 4.36 40-yard-dash at the NFL Scouting Combine.

Ringo boasts toughness to match his size and track speed. The 20-year-old offers athletic upside and brings versatility to the Eagles’ secondary.

The defensive back started 27 games at Georgia, generating four interceptions, 19 passes defended, 76 tackles, three tackles for loss, and a sack. He was named a second-team All-SEC player in 2022.

Ringo will be around plenty of familiar faces in Philly.
