2. Tutu Atwell

Maybe the only guy on this list who figures to actually have a major role in the offense is third-year pro Tutu Atwell.

"I think it’s really early, but Tutu Atwell is a guy that’s really done an excellent job," head coach Sean McVay said recently.

"He’s super smart. Obviously, he’s well known for his speed, but he’s really done a great job in this offseason and it showed up today of really establishing himself, playing with aggressive hands, understanding the nuances of how we want to work edges and separate where he fits within the concepts."

Atwell is entering the third year of four-year rookie contract, and thus far hasn't been a major, impact player just yet. Although, he was a second-round pick for a reason. His speed, agility and overall playmaking ability are all reasons to like him within a McVay offense.

While Kupp is out, though, this gives Atwell extra time to showcase why he should be around for the long haul.
