Five years ago, the Redskins had initial concern over a young man that was making the leap between college and pro.
Selected in the second round of the 2008 draft, tight end Fred Davis missed the final day of his rookie minicamp, leading to team security personnel tracking him down and coming to the conclusion that he simply overslept.
Not that anyone has to worry about the team's newest members forgetting to set their alarm clocks, but the transition from campus life to professional athlete doesn't always come easy.
During a short interview with CSN Washington—available on Rich Tandler's Real Redskins—both Jordan Reed and Chris Thompson mentioned team meetings as one of the most drastic changes going from college to pro.
When asked what the biggest adjustment has been for him so far, tight end Jordan Reed responded, "Probably all the time we spend in meetings.
"We met a lot at Florida," the former Gators star said. "But never as much as we do here. I got to get used to that."
"Our meetings probably lasted two hours, at the most, when I was at Florida State. But here it's a whole lot longer," running back Chris Thompson said with a laugh.
"I'm not used to it," Thompson added. "Especially those early morning meetings."
Remember, though, that this isn't even training camp yet.
As I'm sure the rookies are aware, most things are going to be much tougher than team meetings during your first year in the league.
