The 49ers will not be represented this week at the 22nd annual NFLPA Rookie Premiere in Los Angeles.
The event, which runs from Thursday through Saturday focuses on quarterbacks, running backs and wide receivers. Nine of the 15 quarterbacks drafted are scheduled to attend.
Quarterback Jeff Driskel, whom the 49ers selected in the sixth round, will take part in the first week of organized team activities this week during the team’s offseason program in Santa Clara.
The only defensive player to take part in the rookie premiere is San Diego Chargers defensive lineman Joey Bosa, who was chosen with the No. 3 overall pick.
The NFL Players Association hosts the event through its marketing and licensing arm. The gathering features a photo shoot at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum with the players wearing their official team uniforms for the first time.
"NFLPA Rookie Premiere presents an unparalleled opportunity for our partners to interact with the promising young marketing stars entering the league," said Ahmad Nassar, president of NFL Players Inc., in a statement.
"Learning about the business and benefits of their union as the players plan for their new career is a tremendous advantage. Showcasing their personalities and passions allows us to connect the right players with the right brands to tell their stories, and only adds to what the NFLPA does day after day."
Players from 23 of the league’s 32 teams are scheduled to attend the rookie event, including quarterbacks Jared Goff and Carson Wentz, who were selected with the top two picks in the draft.
