UL Lafayette DL Christian Ringo Selected by Green Bay Packers

The Ragin' Cajuns' lineman will likely play at defensive end in the NFL.

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

The Packers went with a versatile defensive lineman late in the sixth round, drafting UL Lafayette product Christian Ringo with the 34th pick in the sixth round.

Ringo is big-- upwards of 300 pounds-- and had a fantastic senior season for the Ragin' Cajuns, totaling 11.5 sacks, a single-season school record. He can play both defensive end and defensive tackle, although the Packers seem to want to keep him at end.

The only concern is whether or not Ringo's got the speed to play on the outside at the professional level, but he's certainly shown that he has the skills to get to the quarterback early and often.
