Back at work, Patriots prepare for rookie QB Luck

(Continued)

“Obviously, he’s learning,” Ninkovich said. “He’s hitting the ground running. We’re just here to help him out and help his transition. The great thing about him is he’s a great athlete.”

The Patriots will have their own rookie, like Luck, trying to keep building on his transition to the pros.

“The best thing is having great people around you,” said safety Tavon Wilson, a second-round draft choice from Illinois. “The older guys here have been great, instrumental in my development. So he probably has those older guys there, like Reggie Wayne, bringing him along.

“He doesn’t play like a rookie. He doesn’t make too many mistakes. When he does make those mistakes, we have to make him pay for them.”
