Easley arrives in Foxborough

Posted May 12, 2014

Patriots first-round pick Dominique Easley was introduced to the media Monday morning at Gillette Stadium.

Dominique Easley got his first chance to walk out onto the turf at Gillette Stadium on Monday morning, albeit wearing a sharp suit alongside Robert and Jonathan Kraft and not a Patriots uniform

After some introductory comments from Robert Kraft, which included mentions of Easley’s Staten Island, N.Y., roots, the first-round pick was left alone on the stage to field questions from the media on a picturesque sunny morning.

Easley was asked how his brief time as a Patriot had gone thus far.

"I got here yesterday and all the rookies had dinner together last night," he began. "Today we had our physicals and meetings with Coach Belichick." Easley later added the coach told the youngsters they were all behind and had a lot of work to do to catch up.

Easley was asked several questions about his ailing knee. He expressed optimism on recovering but did not elaborate on a time table other than to say he hoped to be back "as soon as possible."

"I’m real anxious and as of right now I’m meeting with the trainers and we’re discussing that right now so I don’t really know," Easley said.

Easley came across as soft-spoken and perhaps shy while answering questions. He did not elaborate often in his answers but was straightforward and respectful. He donned a gold chain outside his dress shirt and tie, explaining it included his son’s name, Dominique II. "Since he’s not able to be here with me, so I carry him everywhere I go."

The Patriots plan to have the rest of the rookie class meet with the media on Tuesday and Thursday afternoon, offering a chance to get first impressions on the rest of the newcomers.
