Football fans will have the chance to get an up-close look at the new crop of NFL rookies this Saturday, April 30, live on YouTube. We’ll be hosting an exclusive live stream of the 2011 NFL Players Association Rookie Debut party, beginning at 10pm ET live from Cipriani Wall Street in New York City. The live stream will be on the NFL Players Association’s YouTube channel here: www.youtube.com/nflplayers

Former Pro Bowl running back/kick returner Brian Mitchell and three-time Super Bowl champion linebacker Willie McGinest will host the party, with appearances from dozens of football players from the past, present and future - including St. Louis Rams running back and Super Bowl champion Marshall Faulk.

Some of the expected attendees (and high draft picks) include: Blaine Gabbert, Patrick Peterson, and last year’s Heisman winner running back Mark Ingram of Alabama and linebacker Von Miller of Texas A&M.

Check out the live stream during the event for exclusive backstage access, interviews and performances - then return to the channel later for plenty of on-demand coverage of the event.

Enjoy the party!
