Detroit Lions kick off rookie minicamp

ALLEN PARK — A few nerves were on display Friday afternoon as the Detroit Lions started their three-day rookie minicamp.

The rookies were still getting used to the drills on the outside field where the temperature hovered around 50 degrees.

Since the media was allowed to watch just 20 minutes it was difficult to draw any conclusions.

Tight end Eric Ebron, first-round pick from North Carolina, and linebacker Kyle Van Noy, second-round pick from BYU, seemed to look comfortable during the drills.

The minicamp continues Saturday afternoon and wraps up on Sunday.

Along with the draft picks and undrafted free agents who signed, there were 23 tryouts including five from Michigan colleges: Shamari Benton from Central Michigan, quarterback Jonathan Jennings from Saginaw Valley State, defensive end Kalonji Kashama from Eastern Michigan, tackle Jake Olson from Central Michigan and Brett Pasche from Hillsdale.
