The NFL Players Association's annual Rookie Premier is this weekend. Like they did last year, SB Nation is there covering the event. Last year, we scored this sit down with then rookie quarterback Ryan Tannehill:
Well, this year, SB Nation's Ryan Van Bibber is at the event, looking to sit down with the new class of rookies. For the Miami Dolphins, the attendees are defensive end, and third overall pick, Dion Jordan as well as running back Mike Gillislee.
Before we get to how to follow RVB, here's a look back at some of his tweets during yesterday's first day of the event:

On Saturday, RVB is going to spend the entire day with the rookies, and should get several of them to sit down for an interview. Hopefully he can pull something from Jordan and/or Gillislee.
