The Patriots have two rookie minicamp practices today at Gillette Stadium -- 10:15 a.m. and 2:45 p.m. The practices are closed to the public.
Media members will be present for the practices, so the question is: What would you want to see?
These practices are held in shorts and T-shirts, there is no contact, and Bill Belichick annually makes the point that they are teaching sessions, not evaluating sessions. The rookies are being introduced to some of the basics of the team's playbook.
That context is important to keep in mind.
In 2006, for example, receiver Chad Jackson seemed to stand out in this camp. But it never transferred over to the field once the full pads came on in training camp.
Feel free to use the comments section to pass along some thoughts, and I'll keep an eye out for them and report back after the first practice.
