What to expect during the Miami Dolphins’ rookie minicamp this week

Charles Harris and the rest of the Dolphins’ draft class are expected to be in town for this weekend’s rookie minicamp, but just like last year, they won’t be here to practice.

Coach Adam Gase is sticking to the same plan as his rookie year, when he brought in the newcomers for a couple of days but made it all about teaching in meeting rooms.

Last year, the Dolphins had the team nutritionist, Mary Ellen Bingham, address players. Director of player engagement Kaleb Thornhill did, too. Financial advice and sports science also were part of the program.

Players also heard from Zach Thomas and Jason Taylor.

Although there won’t be practices, some members of the rookie class will meet from the media, so we’ll soon have a better idea of how they’re dealing with the transition.

Gase and his top assistants — Darren Rizzi, Clyde Christensen and Matt Burke — will address reporters.
