Demario Davis(pictured), along with the rest of the New York Jets draft class are getting to know each other on and off the field. You see, the time between minicamp and training camp is a time for the rookies to learn while the veterans are on vacation. The coaches can have individual meetings, instill nuances unfamiliar to first-year players and run them through a battery of conditioning drills.

Demario Davis leads them all, arriving at the Jets complex by 6 AM every day, he says. The set time they are to arrive is by 8 AM, although most arrive by 7:30, and the day lasts about 10 hours.

The day starts with 1 hour position meetings, a walk-through, followed by a two hour workout and another position meeting beore lunch. After lunch, they have special teams meetings, position meetings, and player development sessions. From there, if you want to get in extra film, according to Demario Davis, the players don’t leave til around “7 or 8 PM”.

Anything to play like a Jet.
