As part of their initiation to the NFL, the league’s top rookies took part in the NFL Rookie Premiere, which is where they get to put on their pro uniforms for the very first time and participate in photo and video shoots that will be seen in stadiums this coming season.
Stephen Hill is the Top Rookie Jets player at the events this weekend.
Jets second-round WR Stephen Hill is one of the 35 members of the NFL’s 2012 rookie draft class who are set to be highlighted beginning Thursday, May 17, at the NFLPA Rookie Premiere presented by Nike.
The rookies will wear professional game jerseys for the first time and thus will be the first class to model Nike’s new uniforms as they participate in photo shoots at the Rose Bowl by trading card companies Panini America and Topps.
Hill, plus Nick Toon, the son of Jets Ring of Honor WR Al Toon who is a Saints draft pick out of Wisconsin, are among the rookies who will be front and center during the three-day event that will conclude Saturday night, May 21, with an exclusive wrap party sponsored by Nike and Verizon that will bring together players past, present and future at Colony Hollywood in Los Angeles.
