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."

Earlier this week, PFF ranked the 2021 starting quarterbacks' deep passing by various
