Dreams became a reality for forty rookies from the 2016 NFL Draft class during the multi-day 2016 NFLPA Rookie Premiere in Los Angeles, May 19 – 21, 2016.

The event kicked off with a Welcome Dinner and a Nike Jersey Reveal in which they had their first glimpse of their NFL jersey. During this event, they participated in numerous photoshoots which included posing for their trading cards while also enjoying the newly formed bonds with each other.

The NFLPA provided players with a platform to take full advantage of the opportunity to be educated on the business of football and personal branding. Emphasis was placed on digital content and building their social media following.  Players had the chance to learn about, and take full advantage of, networking with business partners, sponsors, licensees and building relationships with current and former players as well as NFLPA staff.  This event goes on the books as their first business trip.
