Seahawks Day 2 pick: Round 2, Pick 52
Potential options: Center John Michael Schmitz (Minnesota) and CB Kelee Ringo (Georgia)
John Michael Schmitz possesses elite athleticism and size for a center. At 6’4″, Schmitz consistently shows the athleticism needed to gain leverage against opposing defensive linemen. Schmitz could be a perfect fit with Seattle’s offense most prolific when employing an effective Run first offense.
Kelee Ringo is my favorite prospect in the entire draft. Ringo was a high school track star running 100 meters in 10.43 seconds. Standing at 6’2″, Kelee Ringo has all the size and athleticism to wreak havoc in an NFL secondary while also displaying a willingness to tackle as a corner.
Ringo also shows quickness and aggressiveness to beat the receiver to the ball. Due to his short-lived time being a starter at Georgia, he can also be a bit too aggressive in coverage, keeping his eye on the opposing backfield too often and giving up big plays as a result. Ringo, though, has been sliding in some draft projections due to a lousy playoff performance against Ohio State’s quarterback CJ Stroud.
I would be surprised to see Ringo still be available at pick 52 overall after the pre-draft process is all said and done. As it stands right now, Kelee Ringo is the 46th player on the Pro Football Focus’s (subscription required) prospect giant board. Ringo would be the perfect corner in Seattle to match up with a Tariq Woolen, however.
