Detroit Lions rookie minicamp takeaways Aidan Hutchinson

The majority of the Detroit Lions rookie class, along with a group of tryout players, took to the field on Saturday morning to participate in another rookie minicamp practice.

Head coach Dan Campbell explained to reporters prior to the start of practice what this weekend was intended to accomplish for the young talent coming in and attempting to get acclimated.

“I would say we’re trying to get them acclimated with what we’re doing schematically. So, introduction to our schemes — offense, defense and special teams,” Campbell said. “Then, we’re trying to assess their movement skills and their shape. What kind of shape are they in? What do they really look like as athletes? We’re around them, so we’re testing them a little bit with just their lateral movement, hips, flexibility, change of direction, all of those things. Just to be able to get our eyes on them is really — I’d say those two things are the most important things right now.”
