Colts rookie camp over

INDIANAPOLIS — Now that the Indianapolis Colts rookie camp has wrapped up, second-year head coach Chuck Pagano is now setting his sights on the team's organized team activities practices which are set to begin in two weeks.

Pagano came away from the three-day rookie camp happy with what he saw from the 37 players on hand for the workouts. Only safety John Boyette, a sixth-round pick from Oregon, failed to take part in the sessions.

Boyette is still recovering from torn patellar issues on both knees that sidelined him for most of the 2012 season. The Indianapolis coaching staff, though, remain hopeful of having him available for OTA work.

Overall, according to Pagano, it was a good rookie camp.

"it was a great weekend. The guys just did an unbelievable job," he voiced. "Again, what we're trying to find out is what these guys could digest from a mental standpoint. Physically they pushed through it.

"Having 37 guys and 36 of them going, there's not much rotation in there. So we took care of them as best we can. But they pushed through and they did a nice job."

There were plenty of positives and few negatives.

"Pleased with what they accomplished [Sunday]. We finished with some red-zone stuff [with the] highlight of the camp [being] a big pass play for a touchdown [to end the practice]," Pagano said of the 20-yard scoring pass from quarterback Tanner Marsh (Arkansas Tech) to tight end Justice Cunningham (South Carolina). Cunningham was this year's Mr. Irrelevant in the draft, taken with the final pick in the seventh round.

"What is was was our Detroit scenario. We try to do all these must-win mock situations, so four seconds on the clock and fourth down. Got to have a touchdown, a little walk-off home run if you will. So it was a pretty good way to end camp."
