It's difficult to tell much from rookie minicamp.

The Bears had nine draft picks running around with nine undrafted free agents and 25 tryout players. General manager Jerry Angelo said after the draft that it was realistic for six draft picks to make the 53-man roster but that all nine had the qualities and attributes that made them a real possibility.

If an undrafted free agent makes the roster, it probably won't be more than one. So of the 43 players hustling through drills for the first time as part of a professional football team, maybe seven will be there come September. Here are a few observations:

*** Wide receiver Juaquin Iglesias looks the part. He has good size and catches the ball well with his hands. But if skill position players don't stand out in 7-on-7 drills and drills vs. air, well, then you have a real problem on your hands.

*** Cornerback D.J. Moore broke on the ball well and was praised by coach Lovie Smith afterward.
