Denver Broncos top pick Bradley Chubb along with Royce Freeman, Courtland Sutton, and DaeSean Hamilton will represent the team at the NFLPA rookie premiere…
The Denver Broncos will be very well represented at this year’s NFLPA Rookie Premiere, an event that serves a variety of purposes but for the fans is the first look at these young players in their full uniforms.
Bradley Chubb leads a league-high four rookies from the Broncos to attend the event (according to Nicki Jhabvala of The Athletic) along with second-round pick Courtland Sutton, third-round pick Royce Freeman, and fourth-round pick DaeSean Hamilton.
Like I said, this event serves a variety of purposes for the players, who get to go out to Los Angeles and participate in some beneficial seminars together. The best part about it, though, is the photo shoot with some of the top rookies from around the league.

For whatever reason, one of the coolest things every year is to see players in their new uniforms, even on the practice field.
This is a chance to see them in full uniform like we did last year around this time with Carlos Henderson.
It’s pretty awesome that the NFLPA thinks the Broncos picked this many marketable players in this year’s draft. Sometimes players are chosen based strictly on collegiate production, but the Broncos got some really interesting personalities and productive college players.
We’ve looked at this Broncos rookie class at length, and these are certainly some of the players we’re most excited about. Obviously, when you think about instant impact, these might be the guys that get on the field quickest for the Broncos, along with fourth-rounder Josey Jewell.
The three offensive players invited by the Broncos could be part of the new wave of talent on that side of the ball for this team, and perhaps some building blocks going forward that the Broncos have desperately needed.
If you need something to give you a fresh perspective on the Broncos’ rookie class, check out this podcast with Brandon Keckler and me, where we discuss the draft picks at length.
If the Broncos can get impact from these rookies, it will be fun to look back on this event to see how far they’ve come.
The Broncos have had a number of players invited to this event in recent years, including Henderson last year, as well as Paxton Lynch and Devontae Booker in 2016.
