NFL rookies are entering a unique world, one in which they are paid to play football. The work is beyond difficult, but the experience – and, yes, the pay – can be quite incredible for the ones who make it.
Like most players at the Colts Rookie Minicamp over the weekend, third round pick Hugh Thornton enjoyed being on the job for the first time. “It was awesome,” he said. “I had a lot of fun out there, learned a lot of stuff. That’s one thing you realize, the change from college to the pros playbook is deep. There are a lot of things that go into it. You have a lot of checks. It’s been interesting. It’s been fun. I’m excited to meet the veterans and go from there.”
There were 37 players at the minicamp over Mother’s Day weekend. History tells us that some undrafted players will make the team and possibly contribute, but for now, we’ll focus on the seven draftees.no comments
