Former Georgia cornerback Kelee Ringo's NFL preseason debut with the Philadelphia Eagles has garnered significant attention from fans, particularly for his impressive pass coverage skills.

While preseason games might not hold considerable significance for fans, they offer a valuable opportunity for the organization to validate the investment they've made in their roster. This sentiment was echoed by Jalen Carter, who secured his inaugural NFL sack on his first play of the game, reaffirming his place on this grand stage.

Ringo's performance in his debut showcased his ability to silence skeptics who had previously pointed out concerns about his agility, particularly in his hips. Tasked with defending a comeback route during the second quarter, Ringo displayed flawless technique by swiftly adjusting his hips to knock down the ball, resulting in his maiden career pass breakup and forcing the Ravens to punt.

Critics' prior concerns about Ringo's "stiff hips" were cast aside with his fluid maneuver in this crucial play, illustrating his potential in the cornerback position. While consistency may be a factor, Ringo's on-field contribution extended beyond his coverage skills as he also recorded a tackle.

The opportunity to learn from seasoned cornerback veterans Darius Slay and James Bradberyy Jr. presents Ringo with a promising learning curve. As is customary for rookies in the NFL, there is ample room for growth and adaptation, yet early indications suggest that a Dawgs domination in the NFL could be on the horizon.
