The Philadelphia Eagles saw Georgia’s defense dominate college football and decided they wanted to participate, once again bolstering their core Bulldogs by selecting Kelee Ringo on Day 3 of the 2023 NFL Draft.

Ringo had been among the marquee names still available, to the surprise of analysts, after being overlooked in the first three rounds of the draft, before eventually landing in Philadelphia at 105th overall.

There was a sense of inevitability about his destination as the Eagles traded before the start of the fourth round, having already drafted Ringo’s national championship-winning Georgia teammates Jalen Carter and Nolan Smith in the first round on Thursday night.

Awaiting the trio, a reunion with Philly defensive tackle Jordan Davis and linebacker Nakobe Dean, with whom they also won the 2021 national championship.

The trades fizzled out before a single pick was made on day three: the New Orleans Saints moved forward to acquire Old Dominion offensive tackle Nick Saldiveri with the first pick of the fourth round; the Las Vegas Raiders moved to acquire Maryland cornerback Jakorian Bennett with the second pick; and the Eagles added Ringo to their Georgia product pool.

North West Defensive End Adetomiwa Adebawore joined Ringo among the notable names in dropping quickly as he was drafted by the Indianapolis Colts 110th overall, before 6’8″ 374-pound Ohio State offensive tackle Dawand Jones does head to the Cleveland Browns immediately after.

The depth of this year’s cornerback class was then reflected again when the Atlanta Falcons grabbed Clark Phillips III from Utah. with the 113th selection, adding lightning footwork across from AJ Terrell in the secondary.

Sky Sports NFL studio in London would perform on stage for the Chicago Bears’ 115th pick as they select running back from Texas Roschon Johnson, as announced by Majeetah, British flag footballer for the Bears.

Five picks later, he was back in the UK when the New York Jets announced their selection of Pittsburgh offensive tackle Carter Warren with talkSPORT Studio’s 120th pick, before Jaguars center Luke Fortner and Fulham’s Tim Ream announce Jacksonville’s selection of Florida inside linebacker Ventrell Miller with Craven Cottage’s 121st pick.

The quarterbacks fell with back-to-back picks when the Saints added Fresno State’s Jake Haener 127th overall, before the Los Angeles Rams followed suit by drafting Stetson Bennett from Georgia.

Wisconsin linebacker Nick Herbig was later selected by the Pittsburgh Steelers as the 132nd overall pick, establishing a union with his brother Nate as well as friend and fellow Badgers product TJ Watt.
