Every year before NFL teams flock to Organized Team Activities, the NFLPA hosts a Rookie Premiere where they invite a select group of rookies who are introduced to specific vendors, are given insights into how to manage money in the NFL and much more.
In 2017, the Pittsburgh Steelers have a trio of players invited to the event, and they seem to be taking in all they can while in Los Angeles. Those players are James Conner, JuJu Smith-Schuster and Josh Dobbs.
The good thing about this year’s Rookie Premiere is the fact these players won’t be missing any of the team’s Organized Team Activities (OTAs), like they have in the past. The players will have to get back to the Steel City fast, as the players will report for duty on Tuesday, May 23rd, for the first official day of OTAs.
Take a look at some of what the rookies are up to out on the west coast.
