The rookie class of 2003 will surely never all be in the same room at the same time again. Some will go on to Hall of Fame careers, while others will simply be footnotes in the game's history.
However, for four days, starting today and running through Wednesday, all 262 rookies drafted by NFL clubs will be together at the NFL's seventh annual rookie symposium.
Topics will include such matters as dealing with the trappings of fame to managing investments. There will be panel discussions including current and former players talking about the rigors of their first NFL training camp as well as life after football.
The league has made attendance at the symposium mandatory and those players who miss the session are subject to heavy fines from the league.
All Vikings rookies are scheduled to attend the symposium.
