    Helmut Rookie Minicamp 2013

    Day 1 Of Rookie Mini-Camp Highlights



    It's looking pretty good. The three first round picks are standing out from the rest of the rookies. Xavier Rhodes is making plays on the ball already... Patterson's cuts are looking super-sharp... I can't wait for the season!

    So, you are saying that the other rookies are not impressive?

    Is that good?

    No.

    I'm saying the first rounders look like first rounders should look like.

    Translate: first round draft picks looks like first round draft picks in training = A GOOD THING!

    Alright.

    But the others, not so much.

    No surprises?

    I'm guessing you can't really tell at this point with linebackers.

    If the first rounders are not looking significantly better than the late rounds and undrafted rookies, then I would be worried.

    I heard that Gerald Hodges is doing well. Seems to have the mental aspect locked down. I think he will start at outside linebacker this year.

    Of course not... he doesn't have long enough arms to hold the ball away from his body

    A Closer Look: WR Rodney Smith

    I hope this young player can develop into a starter in Minnesota. I like his size at 6'4" (some even have him listed at 6'6) and he has good speed for his size. He's a good route-runner from a physical stand point and has good leaping ability combined with long arms. I really like his pass-catching abilities and the movement skills combined with his size.
