The NFLPA holds its annual rookie premiere in Los Angeles later this week. This year, fourth-round pick Jamaal Williams will represent the Green Bay Packers at the event.

The NFLPA Rookie Premiere began in 1994 and has grown in the time since. It allows rookies to debut as members of their new teams and interact with business and marketing ventures for the first time professionally.

Because the event generally focuses on quarterbacks and skill position players, the Packers had fewer candidates in their draft class than in past years. The team did not pick an offensive player until the fourth round when it selected Williams, a running back out of Brigham Young University.

The Packers tend to be well represented at the NFLPA Rookie Premiere. In 2016, wideout Trevor Davis attended the event. A year earlier, quarterback Brett Hundley and running back Ty Montgomery made the trek out to Los Angeles.

The full list of rookies attending the rookie premiere can be found on the NFLPA's official website.
