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.——————

And there you have it: dead silence.
Hayes Pullard was still on the board.
We’ll see how he compete… Now, we are waiting for those UDFA signings… Last year 2 gems for DL – Mike Pennel & Luther Robinson… Lets see who will be this year UDFA star!
This is the least excited I’ve ever been about a entire Packers draft I can ever remember. There were far more “Huh” reactions after the pick than “Wow” reactions.
me too…hopefully its just cuz we really don’t need much…but jeez…what a drag….half these guys won’t be here in Sept….
A pick for depth at best. He seems undersized in height and weight for an NFL DE. We’ll see. Thanks, Since ’61
Just wondering if he’s any relation to former Packer great Jim Ringo?
