Just a quick reminder: Minicamp is an extension of "passing camp." Players are not in full pads. There is no hitting of any kind. Therefore, if you're looking for updates on how the offensive line is taking shape, or how Mike Pennel is going to impact the game for the Patriots' defensive front, don't hold your breath. 

The passing game alone, however, offers us a multitude of points of intrigue. Those are where are eyeballs will be glued when minicamp kicks off Tuesday and runs through Thursday. 

Here are five minicamp moments we're expecting to see that should kick up a little bit of buzz around the team -- as much buzz as can be kicked up in June -- almost two full months before training camp begins.
