The 2013 NFL rookies show off their art skills


By Susan Lulgjuraj | Beckett Football Editor

It’s a good thing some of these NFL rookies have day jobs.

Panini America revealed artwork many of the 2013 NFL rookies created while at the NFL Players Association Rookie Premiere. The 1-of-1 player-drawn sketch cards is seemingly becoming an annual venture – and one collectors enjoy getting a peek at.

The results appear in pictures on this page, but Panini is putting these cards into exclusive 2013 National Sports Collectors Convention packs.

Most players stuck to simple ideas, drawing the logo of their new NFL team. While other improvised, drew up a play and had a little fun.

    I am a teacher, and this truly looks like three-year olds drew these! Scary that these guys have to learn an NFL playbook!
