The National Football League Players Association will be holding their annual Rookie Premiere this week from the 16th through the 18th. There will be 40 rookies from around the league attending this event. Only the most popular of the rookies will attend; the skill players, - the "sexy picks". In fact, the only defensive players at this event will be 2nd round linebacker Manti Te'o, and OLB/DE Dion Jordan, and their are no offensive linemen attending.
The St. Louis Rams representatives this year will be wide receivers Tavon Austin and Stedman Bailey. Obviously the players are excited to head out to L.A.

During this event the players will meet with the sponsors of the NFL, gain more exposure, mingle with the media members, and of course - entertain the lucky guests in the Los Angeles area.
The most important thing these rookies will do is take pictures for their player cards. They will don their uniforms, have fun taking pictures and just relaxing.
For a full list of the 40 players attending here you go.
Oh, SB Nation's/Turf Show Times writer Ryan Van Bibber will be attending this event.
