The final rookie minicamp practice has concluded, and head coach Marvin Lewis shared his thoughts on his newest players and their adjustment to the NFL life:
I thought they went very good. It’s been very productive. When you have 10 draft picks there’s a lot of opportunity to get those guys involved and see them get incorporated in the offense and defense and then a little bit of special teams. To a man I’ve been pleased with what they’ve come out here and done. Now most will be here this week and get infused with the rest of the team.
The next key offseason event will be May 20-23, when organized team activities (OTAs) take place.This is phase three of the offseason workout program, the first two weeks being a maximum of three days. Coaches are permitted to attend these, but no live contact is allowed.
