"I learned a little bit about how offensive linemen think that should help me with my game," he says.

Rocker showed a quick burst in the one-on-one pass rush/pass protection drills at the camp giving offensive linemen trouble trying to stay in contact with him. "Pass rush is my best asset as a player," he says.

"I enjoyed being out there at the camp around a lot of good players," he adds.
