After transferring to Fresno State after two seasons at the University of Washington, Haener starred for three years with the Bulldogs. As a junior in 2022, he threw for 4,096 yards and 33 touchdowns against nine interceptions, while completing 67.1% of his throws.

Breaking down Haener is simple: He has a mediocre arm, but makes up for it with quick decision-making and the ability to stand in the pocket under duress. The ideal situation is for the 6'4", 207-pounder to develop as a backup after someone makes him a mid-round pick. At the Senior Bowl, Haener earned MVP honors while also being the most consistent performer throughout practices.

Nobody would argue Haener has the skill set of those who are legitimate first-round prospects this year, such as Young, C.J. Stroud, Anthony Richardson, Will Levis or Henden Hooker, but as a project with the right coaching staff, there’s plenty to work with.

If you played a substantial role on Georgia’s defense over the past two seasons, there’s probably a good reason for NFL front offices to cue up their tape. Ringo certainly qualifies as such a man, having played in 29 games while notching four interceptions for the Bulldogs, which repeated as champions in January.

At 6'2" and 205 pounds, Ringo’s measurables are fantastic. At the scouting combine in Indianapolis, he ran a 4.36 40-yard dash, giving general managers another reason to strongly consider Ringo once Christian Gonzalez, Joey Porter Jr. and Devon Witherspoon come off the board on Day 1. If Ringo has enough quick-twitch athleticism to stay with speedy receivers coming out of their breaks, he could have a long career ahead.

In a league where corner play is increasingly becoming more important due to the volume of throws and their quickness after the snap, Ringo has the potential to make for a high-upside pick on the draft’s second day.

    I'd be happy with Ringo in the second.

    I will pass on the Turnover Salmon.
