While the New England Patriots' front office was busy maneuvering through the NFL draft and the subsequent undrafted free agency period, the team's players already found themselves in the middle of offseason strength and conditioning workouts. The voluntary workouts began on April 16, and will see its next highlight in late May when minicamp will officially be kicked off.

Before that, however, the Patriots' rookies will join the equations: Beginning on May 10, New England will holds its 2018 rookie minicamp. The three-day non-contact, non-padded event will include meeting the coaching staff, physical examinations and first introductions into the Patriots' scheme and overall daily routine. Per the collective bargaining agreement, rookies are not allowed to work more than 10 hours a day.

The event will be the first taste of real NFL life for the Patriots' nine draft picks and 10 previously reported undrafted rookies (not all of whom may have signed a contract; some might simply be camp invitees):
