2. Rashee Rice, WR

It's safe to see that Rashee Rice's offseason didn't begin on the right foot. After impressively tallying nearly 1,000 receiving yards as a rookie, Rice was arrested back in April after allegedly being involved in a multi-car accident in Dallas, leaving many people to wonder what the incident meant for his future.

The 24-year-old pass-catcher could've hidden from the spotlight during minicamp, but he didn't. Instead, Rice did the right thing by owning up to his mistakes to the media earlier this week, saying that he's learning to grow and mature from the accident. That's the type of player most coaches want on their roster as opposed to someone who deflects and denies accountability.

You couldn't blame Rice if the situation caused a distraction during the Chiefs' latest workouts, but that hasn't been the case. He's been one of the team's standout performers and continues to see opportunities from Mahomes, having led his teammates with nine targets on Tuesday before finishing one back of the lead with four on Wednesday.

Rice will likely serve some form of suspension for his actions, but it's clear that the Chiefs are planning for him to play in the majority of games. He already showed that he was one of the NFL's best young WRs as a rookie and having a productive, drama-free summer could be key to taking his game to the next level.

If Rice keeps making positive headlines and improving, his legal issues will be a small blemish on his career when all is said and done.
