The Chicago Bears' official website recently launched a five-part video series that goes behind the scenes of the club's rookie minicamp.

It’s definitely worth a look.

The series is called "Inside Rookie Minicamp," and gives viewers an idea of what Chicago's rookies endured upon taking the first steps of their respective journeys into the NFL. The series kicks off with former Northern Illinois quarterback Jordan Lynch packing up and leaving his parents' home in Mount Greenwood, Illinois, to make the commute to Halas Hall. On the ride over to the facilities, Lynch explains how he became a Chicago Bear and his transition from star quarterback in college to running back in the NFL.

The segment also features draft picks Will Sutton, Brock Vereen and Ego Ferguson making their arrivals at O'Hare International Airport.

"This place is beyond passion," Bears coach Marc Trestman is heard saying during an introductory meeting. "This is where it all started. All of us dreamed about being in a room like this. We had a dream to get here. We know you did, too."

The team's official website will run the five segments throughout June on the site and the club’s official mobile app.

The series runs in its entirety on Saturday at 5:30 p.m. on Fox 32 Chicago, and again on Friday, June 20.
