Here is what were looking for as we visit Redskins Park for the final day of the Redskins three-day rookie minicamp:--On the practice field will be a few dozen draft picks, undrafted free agents, first-year players, and others hoping to land an NFL contract.--Well get a look at a two-hour session with some individual drills and some team drills. Team is in imaginary air quotes because these guys have been together since Friday and there isnt much cohesiveness there. Some players are not in their primary positions due to the nature of how the group of the field was put together. Guard Josh LeRibeus, for example, has been lining up at center.--One predictionRobert Griffin III will look good. He will be throwing passes and he wont have DeMarcus Ware breathing down his neck and his intended receiver wont be blanketed by Nnamdi Asomugha.--With no contact allowed, it will be difficult to glean much knowledge about the three offensive linemen the team drafted last week. Well get a look at how well LeRibeus, Adam Gettis, and Tom Compton can move in shorts and helmets but for the most part they will remain a mystery.--Linebacker Keenan Robinson should provide a few highlights with his ability to fly all over the field. He wont be able to finish off with tackles but he should be fun to watch.--When the come off of the field we will get Griffin at the podium to get his thoughts on the weekend and what is ahead. His immediate future is a week off, where CBA rules say he cant enter the team facility, followed by participation in the second phase of the offseason program starting May 14.--Mike Shanahan also will speak to the media with impressions of RG3, the other draft picks, and the undrafted players.For ongoing updates on the practice via Twitter, follow @Rich_Tandler. We will get some pictures up on both the CSN Washington and Real Redskins Facebook pages and then look for posts and updates right here during the afternoon. Quotes and transcripts will be available on Real Redskins.
