It's hard to get much feel for the talent level of most of the Bears' rookie draft picks. There first day of minicamp served as a slow learning period for the team's newest members.
First round pick Shea McClellin said he was happy his contract was completed and credited his agent for getting it finalized. He said he thought he had a good first day at minicamp.
Coach Lovie Smith reiterated McClellin will be used as a hand-on-the-ground pass rusher.
Second round pick Alshon Jeffery looks like the real deal--big, fast and athletic. He made lots of great catches during practice. However, Jeffery left practice with leg cramps with about 20 minutes remaining.
Is there anyone who wouldn't want to play with Patrick Kane?
Jeremy Roenick joined In The Loop on Wednesday to discuss which current Blackhawks he would like to play with, and naturally, the reigning MVP topped his list.
"He would be my No. 1 choice," Roenick said. "There's no question about it."
But Roenick said there are two more Blackhawks he would like to lace them up with.
"I wouldn't mind playing with (Artemi) Panarin also," he said. "I would love to play with Jonathan Toews. I think I'd play well with all three of them."
Roenick also gave high praise to coach Joel Quenneville, saying he is one of the best coaches in all of sports. Roenick even compared Quenneville to "the Bill Belichick of hockey."
