New England Patriots coach Bill Belichick enjoys this time of year, it’s one of the best times to teach the new kids coming in, and that means training camp is right around the corner. The June minicamp main purpose is to evaluate how much information has been absorbed from the offseason training activities, or in the case of the new draft class, how much have they learned…period. However, Belichick said that this year’s group is an ‘eager’ one, and that getting their attention is an easy task. "Obviously we have a lot of information to give them in every area of football and all of the transitioning it takes to become a professional athlete and most cases for guys moving to this part of the country," Belichick said, via Zuri Berry of Boston.com.  "We have a lot of ground to cover but I think it's a group that seems attentive and eager. Like a lot of groups at this time of year, this group of guys is a pretty similar group to ones we've had in the past. So we'll just take it day by day."
