2009 NFL Draft: What About Javon Ringer?

With the NFL Draft coming closer and closer, I keep reading all these mock drafts on here. I don't mind them except for one small thing. None of them have Javon Ringer in the first round.

For anyone who may not know, Javon Ringer was the RB at Michigan State University the past four years, with last year being his superstar year.

Last year, he piled up 390 carries for 1,637 yards and 22 TD's. This 22-year-old stud from Dayton, OH was in the running for the Heisman Trophy all year, the only RB to do so in a race full of underclassman quarterbacks.

Ringer could be a starter on a number of NFL teams in his first year in the pros. A few of these teams are the Bengals, Jaguars, Browns, Cardinals. and Bears, among others.


So why in the world is everyone forgetting about him? I have no idea. But what I do know is that we should be projecting this stud in the mid-to-late first round instead of wherever else he is projected.

He pretty much single-handedly carried the Michigan State Spartans to the Capital One Bowl last year. Without him, I'm sorry to say they don't have much.
