Talking Points: Redskins rookie minicamp

Here is what were looking for as we visit Redskins Park for the final day of the Redskins three-day rookie minicamp:--On the practice field will be a few dozen draft picks, undrafted free agents, first-year players, and others hoping to land an NFL contract.--Well get a look at a two-hour session with some individual drills and some team drills. Team is in imaginary air quotes because these guys have been together since Friday and there isnt much cohesiveness there. Some players are not in their primary positions due to the nature of how the group of the field was put together. Guard Josh LeRibeus, for example, has been lining up at center.--One predictionRobert Griffin III will look good. He will be throwing passes and he wont have DeMarcus Ware breathing down his neck and his intended receiver wont be blanketed by Nnamdi Asomugha.--With no contact allowed, it will be difficult to glean much knowledge about the three offensive linemen the team drafted last week. Well get a look at how well LeRibeus, Adam Gettis, and Tom Compton can move in shorts and helmets but for the most part they will remain a mystery.--Linebacker Keenan Robinson should provide a few highlights with his ability to fly all over the field. He wont be able to finish off with tackles but he should be fun to watch.--When the come off of the field we will get Griffin at the podium to get his thoughts on the weekend and what is ahead. His immediate future is a week off, where CBA rules say he cant enter the team facility, followed by participation in the second phase of the offseason program starting May 14.--Mike Shanahan also will speak to the media with impressions of RG3, the other draft picks, and the undrafted players.For ongoing updates on the practice via Twitter, follow @Rich_Tandler. We will get some pictures up on both the CSN Washington and Real Redskins Facebook pages and then look for posts and updates right here during the afternoon. Quotes and transcripts will be available on Real Redskins.

Bruce Allen goes full Belichick when talking about Snapchat

Bruce Allen goes full Belichick when talking about Snapchat

When it comes to incorrectly identifying the names of social media platforms, Bill Belichick is the standard-bearer and industry leader. Examples of terms recently uttered by the head coach include gems like "MyFace" and "Yearbook," as the football icon has demonstrated he's somewhat aware of the sites and apps yet doesn't really care about them.

Bruce Allen, though, may have just laid claim to Belichick's crown. In a 1-on-1 interview with CSN Redskins Insider JP Finlay, Allen discussed how he's not involved at all on social media and then proceeded to give Snapchat a glorious new name.

"I don't get to pay attention to everything," Allen told Finlay when asked if the team president keeps up with the constant rumors surrounding Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins.

"You're not on Twitter all the time?" Finlay interjected.

"No, I don't have Twitter," Allen answered, laughing, "and I'm not on Snapper-chapper or whatever it's called."

Allen was in the neighborhood by starting off with "Snap," but the rest of his attempt showed he's not exactly on the right street. Fortunately, unlike Belichick, Jay Gruden has gotten Snapchat's name right in the past, and could likely help Allen get used to the app if Allen ever decides to start using it.

MORE REDSKINS: JIM TOMSULA'S SNOT HAS CAUGHT BRUCE ALLEN'S EYE

What has Bruce Allen noticed so far about Jim Tomsula? His snot

What has Bruce Allen noticed so far about Jim Tomsula? His snot

By signing free agents Stacy McGee and Terrell McClain, Bruce Allen handed new Redskins defensive line coach Jim Tomsula two pieces that the assistant apparently had his eyes on.

"He gave us specific instructions of the type of defensive lineman he was looking for and who he thought could fit our new defensive scheme," Allen told CSN Redskins Insider JP Finlay in a lengthy 1-on-1 interview at the owner's meetings in Phoenix.

So, after crossing those two names off of Tomsula's shopping list, what should Allen buy now for Tomsula? Well, after hearing the next part of Allen and Finlay's conversation, it sounds like a bunch of tissues would be appropriate.

MORE REDSKINS: THE TEAM SAYS THEY WANT TO KEEP COUSINS, BUT DO THEY MEAN IT?

"Have you seen any of the Tomsula clips from the Combine?" Finlay asked Washington's team president, referring to the drills that Tomsula led in very intense fashion. "He's got some scary looking eyes."

"I saw it from watching on the field," Allen responded. "If there's a close-up of him, I'm sure they saw some live snot somewhere in there."

Tomsula has been a part of the Redskins organization for barely more than two months, and he's already intentionally collided with one draft prospect and also impressed/shocked/worried one of his bosses with the amount of mucus his nose produces.

Long live Jim Tomsula.
