Matt Waldman’s RSP NFL Lens examines developmental WR talent Byron Pringle of the Kansas City Chiefs.
The Chiefs have a tough decision on their hands with Byron Pringle. The playmaker from Kansas State has deep speed, skill after the catch, and sophisticated routes in the short, intermediate, and deep ranges of the field.
Kansas City has a stacked depth chart of receiving talent. Pringle helps his cause because he can return kicks and punts. He hurts it because he doesn’t always position his hands where he should as a pass catcher and it leads to drops.
The video below showcases Pringle’s vertical skill and willingness to dictate terms with an opponent. It also reveals a small display of his skill after the catch and his work in the shallow zone of the defense.
If Kansas City can’t keep Pringle, Atlanta, Carolina, New England, and New Orleans would be good matches for his developmental potential.
