The Patriots have progress in their rookie class as their top pick manages to take the field for the first time.

The final day of the Patriots' minicamp yielded some fruitful returns. While sophomore, and off-season standout, wide receiver Josh Boyce was unable to take the field due to a lower leg injury, two key players saw time on the field.

First, cornerback Darrelle Revis was a question mark from day two, disappearing from the field halfway through the day. Luckily, whatever the cause wasn't a lasting effect as he was back on the field for the final day of minicamp. Everyone can breathe.

Second, Patriots first round pick Dominique Easley was on the field for the first time this off-season, albeit in a limited capacity. He participated in the majority of the drills and even took a few snaps on defense. His return and continued development is crucial for this season's success as Easley has gamechanging ability. Easley has been limited due to his ACL recovery.

Seeing both of these key defenders back on the field for the final day is definite progress- let's hope that Easley can continue this momentum into full time appearances for the rest of the summer.
