With all of the NFL Rookie Minicamp’s behind us, the NFLPA has finally released the list of rookies that will attend their annual premiere this weekend. Of the 40 players that will be attending, 3 will be wearing black & gold next season. Running back James Conner, quarterback Joshua Dobbs, and wide receiver JuJu Smith-Schuster will attend the event this weekend amongst a star-studded list of players invited.

The Rookie Premiere serves as an opportunity for the league’s future stars to get insight on the many different off-the-field aspects of being in the NFL, such as financial planning, marketing opportunities, the Wild West that is the media, and the chance to make new relationships with people around the league.

The event will take place from May 18-20 in Beverly Hills, California.
