Rookie Minicamp Notes: Day One

by Phil Sullivan on May 11, 2013

The New York Jets rookie minicamp is underway in Florham Park NJ.  The quarterback always gets the spotlight and all eyes were on Geno Smith.  Geno was asked what it would take to learn the West Coast offense.  He told the media…

As we all know the West Coast system is one of the toughest ones to learn, but I don’t think it was too foreign to me. First of all, I studied my butt off just to be prepared for today and there’s more work that goes into being ready for tomorrow. Overall, it’s going to be a transition and that’s expected, but I’m going to work at it and try my best to put my best foot forward.

At West Virginia Smith took extensive snaps out of the shotgun.  He will be under the center in the NFL and after practice he was asked if that was the most that had happened…

Probably yes, probably more than recently, but it felt like a natural change. Obviously, there are some things that I need clean up and I’m going to work hard with Coach Lee and Coach Mornhinweg. It didn’t feel too odd to me, so I think I did a pretty good job.

There were reports that Geno Smith held a meeting in the hotel with the rookie offensive lineman.  Rex Ryan was very happy to hear about this…

Yeah, I think that’s great. It’s interesting, because I thought it was unusual the way he did command the huddle. That was pretty impressive. And the fact that he’s already telling the guys (instructions), that’s pretty sharp.

Here are some additional notes from Jets rookie minicamp from the JetNation forums.  Be sure to check out our Jets photo gallery as well.
