(May 2, 2006) -- Mario Williams ... Reggie Bush ... Vince Young and all you other NFL rookies -- welcome to the NFL.
Now, buckle 'em up!
That will be the order for both rookies and veterans over the next month as NFL clubs, with the 2006 NFL Draft in the books, open minicamps to get a view of their new talent and renew acquaintances with their veterans.
"It's pretty overwhelming for the rookies," says Indianapolis Colts head coach Tony Dungy. "I remember coming in the same way when I was a rookie. You want to make a good impression, you want to learn. Things are a lot different than when you were in college. You want to learn as much as you can. That's what we are trying to do with this process -- make it an easy transition for them."
Thirty of the NFL's 32 teams conduct minicamps over the next two weekends.
