The top picks from the 2009 NFL Draft, including the top three selections in Matthew Stafford, Jason Smith and Tyson Jackson, will headline a group of more than 30 NFL rookies who will make their professional debut at this weekend’s Reebok NFL Players Rookie Premiere presented by EA Sports and hosted by NFL Players. This will be held at the Los Angeles Coliseum.
“This is a one-of-a-kind event that brings together some of the top rookies in the 2009 class for the first time,” NFL Players CCOO Andrew Feffer said. “It is a unique opportunity to showcase these players to our partners as interesting and compelling personalities, features that are at the core of the NFL Players brand.”
The rookies will visit various stations for photo shoots by card manufacturers Panini America, Topps and Upper Deck, to be used in upcoming card releases. Other players scheduled to appear include first-round selections Mark Sanchez, Michael Crabtree, Knowshon Moreno, Josh Freeman, Percy Harvin and Chris Wells.
In addition, one player will appear at the Beverly Hills Baseball Card Shop in Los Angeles and another at Extra Innings in Culver City on Thursday.
