In Case You Missed It: Rookies arrive

After a busy Draft week, the rookies arrived in Foxborough. Kicking it off on Monday was the arrival of Patriots first round Draft pick Dominique Easley, who was introduced to the media and presented with the ceremonial #1 jersey by Robert and Jonathan Kraft. Patriots Today brought you a behind-the-scenes look at Easley's tour of Gillette Stadium. We also offered up some exclusive photos from his day.

During the week we met with members of the rookie class, highlighted by Patriots second round pick Jimmy Garoppolo, who expressed his excitement to start his NFL career with the Patriots.

"To have this opportunity to come here, I couldn't imagine a better one," he said. "I'm excited to get after it with the guys… and to play a game in this stadium finally."

A common theme among all the rookies we spoke with this week was how important special teams was to their game. Patriots Today sums it all up with their piece 'All for the love of special teams'.
