    Ringo has the size (209 lbs) of an NFL safety and the speed (4.36 forty) of an NFL corner.

    What position to these NFL teams want him to play?

    3 first rounders...maybe 5...in 2023.

    Nolan Smith..........#8

    Jalen Carter...........#5

    Broderick Jones....#13

    Ringo and Washington are also possible 1st Rounders.

    "He has a great frame (6-foot-2) and is incredibly fast (4.36 40-yard dash at the combine), but he can’t rely on his physical tools to get him by,”______Kiper wrote of Ringo."

    Lmao....Kiper (aka...Heckle)...tryin' to sound intelligent. He could've said the exact same thing about 2 of his top 3 picks...Richardson & Levis. I can't believe he didn't have CJ Stroud as one of the first QBs off the board.

    That speaks volumes on the so-called expertise of Kiper and his informants. Lol

    I'll tell you one thing...if Stroud is available at #8...the Falcons 1st pick...they better **** well "take him". He is one of 3 "generational QBs" on the board, IMO. The other 2 are...Bryce Young and Stetson Bennett...in no particular order.

    Whoever selects Richardson or Levis...will wind up blowing a 1st round pick. Not very smart, IMO. It would be the equivalent of Baltimore giving Jackson his "big-top" contract...or Dallas posting up millions to keep Elliott around.

    Generally...people want to "get" what they "pay for". If a team takes Richardson or Levis, in the 1st round...they won't be getting their money's worth, anytime soon...if ever. Lol

    I agree BigDawg, These are the three "Generational" QB talents...I'd love to see SBIV go to the Ravens and if not those birds, The Falcons....the later a guaranteed stadium packer!

    You know what's funny? Lol. None of the 3 top QBs in this draft...were seriously considered for the Heisman, this year...even though 2 of them competed for a Championship...and 1 of em won the MVP in all 4 CFP Games, he has competed in over the last 2 yrs.. Lol...not to mention, 2 Natty's.

    What does that say about the high and not-so-mighty "Heisman Trophy Award" in today's CFB game? Irrelevant!!!

    Time to reevaluate the criteria and presentation date for that, and other awards. Postpone all award voting until, either...after New Year's Bowls... or after the Natty. Otherwise...those award committees will continue to stand in the corner with a "Dunce Cap" on and egg on their face...becoming ever more Irrelevant with each passing year.

    It's not 1950 anymore. The season goes well beyond Thanksgiving, these days. But, they're still presenting the annual award, prior to completion of competition. Irrelevant!
