But perhaps the most “well-rounded” execution of the day took place just a few first downs away, tucked comfortably in an air-conditioned corner of the Gilbert Sports and Fitness Center. It was the fourth and final station in Panini America’s studio-photography rotation — and it was an exercise in spin control.
One by one (and sometimes two or three at a time), the 40 NFL rookies in attendance entered Panini America’s unique 360-degree video booth, stepped atop a circular platform and waited for the countdown — three . . . two . . . one — that would activate the HD video camera mounted to the circular platform. While the players danced . . . or tossed a football . . . or had fun with 2018 Score Football cards . . . or received a confetti shower, the camera rotated 360 degrees around them. The results?
