Seahawks steal No. 1: CB Kelee Ringo, University of Georgia
Ringo would be a huge find for the Seahawks on day two of the draft. There are a few draft experts who think he could go in the first round. The likelihood of Ringo being available for the Seahawks at pick 37 on day 2 is a good possibility.
Ringo has all the athletic tools required of an NFL cornerback and lots of speed as he ran a 4.36 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine. The Seahawks would love to pair Ringo with rising star cornerback Tariq Woolen. With the addition of Kelee Ringo, Seattle would have one of the fastest defensive backfields in the NFL.
Former Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman has compared Ringo to NFL cornerback Patrick Peterson and has served as a mentor to him. Does that sound familiar? Sherman helped teach one of the Seahawks current corners Tariq Woolen as well. Why not add another Sherman protégé to the defensive backfield by adding Kelee Ringo?
The Seahawks had Kelee Ringo, who is a Tacoma native, come to their facility for a top 30 visit back on April 13, two weeks before the draft. Should Ringo be available to the Seahawks at pick 37, do not be surprised if they decide to take him with their first day two selection. If the Seahawks take Kelee Ringo in the second round at 37, it will be the earliest they have taken a defensive back since 2010.
