Derek Sherrod, Randall Cobb and the rest of the Green Bay Packers 2011 NFL Draft choices will have the opportunity to attend an event intended to simulate the Rookie Symposium, which was recently cancelled by the NFL due to the lockout.
The former NFL Players Association is hosting an event called "The Business of Football: Rookie Edition" from June 28 to 29 in Washington D.C.
According to Jim Trotter of Sports Illustrated:
The event, which will be open to all players picked in the 2011 NFL Draft, will focus on financial planning, personal security, dealing with the media, and how to be a professional on and off the field.
Current and former players as well as experts in their field are being invited to address the rookies. The Players Association is covering the cost of the voluntary event including travel and lodging.
