Patriots offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels in heading into the 2013 season with the youngest receiving corps he’s had in years. With three rookies in Kenbrell Thompkins, Josh Boyce and Aaron Dobson, it’s an inexperienced group. Here’s his outlook on his group of very green wideouts this year.
“They’re all anxious to get started,” he said. ”They’ve got an enthusiasm about them. They’re all three capable of playing in our offense. We’ve already moved them and played multiple roles, multiple positions with them, which in our system is a really big plus for us to have some flexibility with those guys. They’ve shown that they will study and work at the mental side of the game to be able to be flexible and play at multiple spots that we need them to.
“They are all competitive and they’ve all been productive in different roles throughout the course of the spring and the preseason. And at the same time, we understand that this will be their first opportunity to play in a regular season game, and we’re going to try like I said to put them in the best positions to be successful at what they’re doing. So, it’s exciting to have them get started, but they’ve got a lot of veteran, experienced players around them. Certainly we are not going to throw them out there and not have a good idea of what exactly we are going to do with them.”
