According to the NFLPA, Bucs QB Kyle Trask and WR Jaelon Darden will be featured in the upcoming 2021 NFLPA Rookie Premiere. It will be the largest class in 27 years of the event, where players will learn about the business side of the league and how endorsement deals work in the NFL.
Only a few defensive players are selected every year, due to the playing card background of the event. Trask will be one of nine quarterbacks at the premiere, while Darden is one of a whopping 23 wide receivers. Both Trask and Darden will begin the first big chapter of their NFL careers on Tuesday when they report for mini-camp, the Bucs first mandatory offseason program.
The Rookie Premiere will likely be held sometime in July, although no date has been announced at this time. Typically the event occurs in the summer in Los Angeles, but COVID-19 precautions caused the premiere to be canceled last year.
