The San Francisco 49ers first-round draft pick, wide receiver Ricky Pearsall, is in Los Angeles this weekend for the NFLPA's annual Rookie Premiere. This event provides invitees from the NFL's incoming rookie class an opportunity to network and engage with NFL partners for potential marketing deals.

The NFL and NFLPA shared videos of the rookies at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum as they take the field in their full team uniforms for photo opportunities. Pearsall can be seen in these videos.


Later, the 49ers shared photos of Pearsall from the event.



San Francisco drafted Pearsall out of Florida with the No. 31 overall pick, assigning him jersey No. 14 for the upcoming season. While Pearsall participated in the 49ers' recent rookie minicamp, players were not dressed in their full game-day uniforms.

As a senior in 2023, Pearsall recorded 65 receptions for 965 yards and four touchdowns over 12 games, per Sports Reference. Throughout his collegiate career, he caught 159 passes for 2,420 yards and 14 touchdowns over five seasons.

Discussing how he envisions contributing to a 49ers offense that already boasts significant star power, Pearsall recently said, "I think my versatility is going to help me. I think being able to play different positions and move me around is going to help me, give me different opportunities. And obviously, coach [Kyle] Shanahan likes to put a lot of guys in motions across the field, create matchups, create different looks. So, I feel like I'll be a guy that can do that."

Pearsall was the only 49ers player invited to the NFLPA Rookie Premiere.
