    May it be a UDFA with little chance of making the roster and not a draftee...lest that draftee be lumped in with possible busts prematurely :rolleyes:

    Really excited, after this draft. Im hoping for big things out of Bryan Anderson and Taylor Price.

    Yeah ... UDFA for sure ... at least 2 of them because we have too many right now and we need ways to keep them all. Perhaps 2 who have a mysterious knee problem. Maybe 1 who has an undisclosed medical problem that needs attention.

    Especially these two....if their injuries last season were just an anomaly and not something that will eventually prove out to be chronic then I'm very intrigued. There was a buzz surrounding Tate last season that suggested he was a special talent, and his measurables are top notch,so good in fact that he was rated higher than Hakeem Nicks before his knee injury. The one issue, once again, involves a positive drug screen for marijuana last year at the combine.

    I agree. I'm not overly worried about the drug test bit. I just hope the knee is healed and he turns out as good or better than advertised.

    After the mini camp this weekend, what goes on between now and June? I assume they are working out with the team? How does that work?

    Re: Rookie mini-camp starts tomorrow.

    Every team is allowed a few periods of OTA's after mini-camp and before training camps. OTA = organized team activities, although it is anyone's guess how much that definition is abused.

    Glad to see this, and cannot wait for the reports...

    Do they get paid?? If they get an injury that is career ending, does the NFL pay him or does insurance kick in???

    Re: Rookie mini-camp starts tomorrow.

    The player and team signs a waiver that says they'll still get paid according to their draft slot. For example (though not career ending) the Pats gave McKenzie the same contract he would have received based on his draft past position last year. I suppose the team can take out insurance in case an injury happens if they wanted to, but the player does not need to do that.

    They have said they will: Official Patriots Football Weekly Blog
    Should be fun. Wish they were open to the public, but it makes a lot of sense that they aren't.

    This is one of the most painful times of the year... waiting to see the new players/ new team configuration, but only getting teases from camps and "team activities". I love summer, but... Hurry up, fall!!

    Re: Rookie mini-camp starts tomorrow.

    If by once again, you mean Hernandez, that is incorrect. He did not test positive at the combine. As far as the NFL is concerned he has zero strikes.
