This year's NFLPA Rookie Premiere was a sun-soaked, star-studded extravaganza.

 

 

 

Players signed autographs, posed for photos and got their dance game on (we're looking at you, Odell Beckham Jr.), all while donning their new team uniforms for the first time.

 

Held at the legendary Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, the event began early with a 7:00 a.m. group photo shoot.  It was definitely a cool sight to see Johnny Manziel and Sammy Watkins in their respective Cleveland Browns and Buffalo Bills jerseys. 

 

 

 

Afterward, players were split into groups and assigned to different stations where they signed various memorabilia and modeled for action shots to later be used for their future cards. Panini America gave Fan Pass exclusive access to check out some of the behind-the-scenes shoots.

 

Jadeveon Clowney definitely stole the show at the portrait session. The dude has total charisma.

 


 

From Khalil Mack to Blake Bortles, the players who chatted with us were thrilled to be entering the league. They couldn't wait to be on the field.

 

And we can't wait to see them there, either.
