Rooks: key is following vet’s lead

Posted by Chris Brown on May 29, 2012 – 8:12 am

Players often talk about mental reps when they’re the ones not getting the physical reps in the practice setting. Most of Buffalo’s rookies are going to need to learn to acquire that skill knowing the veterans are in most cases going to be getting the lion’s share of the time on the field.

As OTAs begin today, the rookies are going to need to make the most of the individual position drill segments. That’s when everyone gets reps. More importantly it’s time for the young players to watch the vets and learn how to most effectively execute drills and techniques to improve their own game.

Finally for the rookies it’s all about being able to adjust and adapt.

“I just going to continue working on listening to what the coach is telling me,” said OT Cordy Glenn. “Just trying to pick up the new things. It’s different from college, a little of that. Just trying to be coachable.”
