Kansas State wide receiver Byron Pringle will have a pre-draft visit with the San Francisco 49ers, according to Aaron Wilson of the Houston Chronicle.

Pringle transferred from Kansas' Butler Community College to Kansas State in 2016. In two seasons with the Wildcats, he registered 69 receptions for 1,355 yards with 10 touchdowns, according to Sports Reference.

Lance Zierlein of NFL Media, who compares Pringle to Leonte Carroo, had the following to say in his scouting report:

"Pringle will be a 25-year-old rookie come November thanks to a college pathway that was clogged by criminal indiscretions. By all accounts, he is a new man, but NFL evaluators will make their own determinations. Pringle improved from last season to this one and showed an ability to create separation down the field, but he'll have to prove he can have that he can defeat press coverage on the pro level. Pringle is a physical receiver with downfield potential, but is primarily a developmental prospect at this stage."

Laken Tomlinson has an opportunity to make a lot of money this offseason, putting his family in an even better situation. The San Francisco 49ers guard is scheduled to become a free agent during the upcoming offseason. There is no doubt that the team would like to retain one of its most consistent players. Tomlinson has started every game since Week 2 in 2017, the year San Francisco shipped a fifth-round draft pick to the Detroit Lions for the former No. 28 overall pick in the 2015 NFL Draft. He'll likely earn a nice payday in the coming months. That isn't on his mind right now, though. Instead, Tomlinson and the 49ers are focused on making the playoffs.
