The rookie premiere is typically for the marketable players in the league. So it usually consists of skill players like quarterbacks, running backs and pass-catchers. There also will be a few defensive linemen who get invited as well.
The NFL rookie premiere is designed to help league sponsors and corporate brands get to know some of the marketable names entering the league.
Richardson is the big name for the Colts as the No. 4 overall pick, but Downs should be an immediate contributor for Indy as well in the slot receiver role.
