7. Byron Pringle, Free Agency

In a room that has a lot of question marks, Byron Pringle has the most going for him to enter training camp as the number two wideout behind Darnell Mooney. It helps that Ryan Poles was in the organization that was there to sign Pringle as a UDFA, then watch him grow from a roster bubble player to a starter in the playoffs.

Sure, Pringle never really set the world on fire, and he is going to be 29 this season. Still, that is what would push him down to number six on our list.

He still has shown more on tape than Dante Pettis and Tajae Sharpe, especially in the past year. The reality is that in most cases, the addition of a starting right guard like Zach Thomas may be more exciting.

Still, it is hard to look at the wide receiver room and look at Pringle, and the money they gave him as well as the success he had last season, and think that he will not be one of their top wide receivers to start training camp. That alone makes him one of the better off-season additions.
