With their sixth-round pick (210 overall) in the 2015 NFL draft, the Green Bay Packers select Christian Ringo, DT, Louisiana Lafeyette
In 2014, Christian Ringo (6’1 295) had 11.5 sacks and 20.5 TFL, remarkable stats for a defensive tackle. Ringo’s 11.5 sacks this season broke the all time ULL single season sack record, and his 21 career sacks are tied for best in ULL history.
Pros: Consistently provides pressure off the edge and on inside moves. Generates force with a thick core and strong lower body, and is difficulty to leverage because of his low center of gravity. Often commands double teams or help blocks. Non-stop motor and plays to the whistle – will crawl to the quarterback/ball carrier if he has to. Nose for the ball and always attacking. Experience lining up inside and on the edge. Highly productive when healthy. Known as a mature player who takes well to coaching.
Cons: Lacks ideal height and length to stay out on the edge, and is undersized for an interior lineman. Sloppy build. Rotational defender used to being spelled for a significant number of snaps. Not an instinctive player, more reactionary, especially against the run. Short on speed and endurance in pursuit.
Have never heard of him before. From the scouting report and the video above, seems like a poor man’s Mike Daniels.——————
