Remember your first day of high school, freshman year?

All the upperclassmen would spend that first day back perusing the ninth grade hallways, checking out the young 'uns, a new crop of gorgeous ladies for them to ogle.

Well, Glamazons, we're going back to those high school days, and introducing you to the NFL's hottest rookies.

I have to say, we'd be remiss not to begin our rookie introductions with the Denver Broncos' newest wide receiver, Eric Decker.

Last year, Sports Illustrated named Eric the third best wide receiver in college football. He suffered an ankle injury halfway through his senior year, but that didn't deter NFL scouts. A standout performer for the University of Minnesota, Eric amassed 1,074 yards and 84 catches in his junior year, making an indelible impression on scouts everywhere.

Eric is a jack-of-all-trades. Not only a football phenom, this cutie also knows his way around the bases. Eric played outfield for the Minnesota Gophers baseball team and was drafted by the Minnesota Twins in the 2008 MLB Draft.

Despite having the possibility of playing in the MLB for his hometown team, Eric would, in the end, choose his first love—football. He declared for the 2010 NFL draft and the Broncos picked him up in the third round. He may have been a third round pick, but he's already been touted as a rookie to keep an eye on.

We'll tell you this, our eyes are definitely on Eric Decker.

He's absolutely gorgeous and funny with a to-die-for personality. Glam Girls had the opportunity to catch up with this sweet charmer at the NFL Rookies Bowling Tournament for Charity. The newest batch of NFL rookies were in town taking pictures for their trading cards, modeling screenshot images for the 2010 Madden NFL game, and most importantly, they were presented their NFL jerseys for the first time.

A weekend to remember, indeed.

The rookies played in a charity bowling tournament, and Decker, alongside good friend and bowling teammate quarterback Colt McCoy, had his eye on the prize, telling Glam Girls: "Tonight is about winning the bowling tournament for charity. Tomorrow, it's back to football."

Music to our ears! Without further ado, let's meet the ever-fabulous Eric Decker!



GG: Eric, tell us about NFL Rookie Weekend?

ED: It's been amazing. We've made our first appearance, had a photo shoot. It's been a really laid-back environment. Getting to know the other's been cool.


GG: Since being drafted, how has your workout regimen changed?

ED: Definitely intensified. I have changed my training sessions. Really working on strength, power, and movement. It's baby steps.


GG: One thing you're most worried about as an NFL player?

ED: Definitely the altitude in Denver. My biggest worry would be passing out.


GG: If you could date one celebrity who would it be?

ED: Jessica Biel, without a doubt.

**Sorry, Justin; we think you have some competition here.**


We can't wait to watch this rookie make his way through the hallways of the NFL. Tom Brady, Mark Sanchez, and Carson Palmer, watch out. There's a new cutie on our block.


Stay Fabulous, My Friends,
