NFL Draft: Eagles schedule top-30 visit with elite CB prospect
With the NFL Draft just four weeks away, the Eagles are beginning to zero in on their top prospects.
Philadelphia currently holds two selections (No. 10 and No. 30 overall) in the first round and has already held top-30 visits for several players, including Bijan Robinson, Lukas Van Ness, and Georgia’s Jalen Carter.

Kelee Ringo Scouting Report
Boundary corner with an impressive blend of size and athleticism. Ringo is uniquely suited to travel the field and match talents against some of the bigger targets in the league. He can press and does a nice job of controlling plays in front of him from off coverages. However, he is very average at anticipating breaks and transitioning with them to squeeze the top of the route.
His physicality in coverage and in run support are big assets in his favor, but there is still work to be done in consistency of coverage. Ringo’s traits will be highly coveted and he has a chance to become a very good NFL cornerback if his route recognition continues to develop. — NFL.com
Although the Eagles retained both of their Pro Bowl corners from a season ago, they need to get younger at the position, and Ringo would be of tremendous value at No. 30 overall. At 6’2 “, 210 pounds, Ringo allowed just one TD on 545 coverage snaps last season and ran a 4.36 at the NFL Combine.
Former Bulldogs Jordan Davis and Nakobe Dean expect to see more prominent roles with the Eagles in 2023 — it may not be long before the entire Georgia band is back together.
