As previously announced on Thursday, SB Nation is now a proud media partner for the NFLPA's Rookie Premiere, which takes place next week in Los Angeles. We'll be there, with video cameras in hand, to follow this year's batch of rookies around for a few days.
More important to Bay Area NFL fans though, is that we're giving you the chance to interview one of two new 49ers - running back LaMichael James or wide receiver A.J. Jenkins! Here's how - SB Nation has teamed up with the NFLPA Rookie Premiere to announce the Rookie FanChat, a contest where the winner gets to Skype with their team's top rookie - in your case, James or Jenkins. And that's not all -- the winner also gets a NFLPA Rookie Premiere helmet signed by one of those two players!
Enter the SB Nation Rookie FanChat contest with three easy steps:
- Like SB Nation on Facebook
- Follow SB Nation on Twitter
- Tell us in the comments of this post: If you had just one question to ask your NFL team's top draft pick, what would you ask him?
The winner, selected May 16, will have the chance to Skype for 30 minutes with either LaMichael James or A.J. Jenkins, between 1 to 4 p.m. PST on May 18. And there's even a prize for second -- an autographed football AND a Rookie Premiere Gift Pack.
If you're wondering, the NFLPA Rookie Premiere is a chance for 35 of the top picks in the 2012 NFL draft to make their official professional debut, beginning May 17. In addition to being the first rookie class to wear the new Nike jerseys, the players will participate in events around L.A. in the lead up to their official coming out party. Here's the official schedule of next week's activities, which includes a flag football game with celebrities and former NFL players.
