Quick Hits: Anam Talks About Camp Experience

Patriots Insider John Ingoldsby caught up with Boston College product Larry Anam to ask him how minicamp was going for the rookie. Anam shared his thoughts on the drills, special teams and more

(Speaking Sunday about his first day of drills on Saturday)
Larry Anam: "It was tough, fast-paced and I felt myself getting winded when I started doing drills out there. I have not felt that way in a while. Maybe it's because Bill Belichick and everybody is out there watching me and I realized I am working in the NFL, and I still can't believe it. But it was good, and I felt good. There is a lot going in, and I have a lot of mental reps, and it's not just physical ability since you have to be mentally ready, especially on this team. I have to know the playbook and have to know the system."

(On special teams)
LA: "It is really important for me since Coach Belichick puts a lot of emphasis on special teams. For me as an undrafted free agent to make the team, I have to really perform on special teams as much as I can. Special teams may be the most I can get, since I might actually only get to play one or two plays in a defensive series and show my talent, so I have to make my mark on special teams right now. They are deep in the defensive backfield - very deep."

(On coming from Boston College to the local team)
LA: "It's like 35 minutes from campus, and my best friend drove me. I got here easily, and it was pretty easy to find."
