With the start of the 2014 NFL season upon us, it's time to get to know the members of the 2014 rookie class. Here are ten things we learned, including, who can surf, who got his name from a Tupac movie and who loves the TV show "Pretty Little Liars."

1) Jadeveon Clowney of the Houston Texans says he uses his length, in particular his long arms, to keep guys off of him. He says, "When they lean on me, drop them." (WATCH)

2) While he may have a cannon for an arm, Minnesota Vikings quarterback Teddy Bridgewater loves using his Canon camera to take pictures. (WATCH)

3) Running back Bishop Sankey of the Tennessee Titans reveals to fans that he got his name from the 1992 Tupac Shakur film "Juice," which was his dad's favorite movie. (WATCH)

4) Brandin Cooks of the New Orleans Saints is known for making pretty plays on the field, but admits that his guilty pleasure off the field is the TV show "Pretty Little Liars." (WATCH)

5) Despite his fierce style of play on the field, Buffalo Bills wide receiver Sammy Watkins admits he is a calm guy off the field who never gets mad. (WATCH)

6) Wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin of the Carolina Panthers believes he is one of the top three "Call of Duty" players in the world, and is a big fan of "The Walking Dead" because of his love for vampires and zombies. (WATCH)

7) Mike Evans of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers reveals he is a huge fan of Harry Potter, saying it is his favorite movie series of all time. (WATCH)

8) Despite being a 6-foot-5 inch quarterback, Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blake Bortles says he can surf, and admits that it is a feat most guys his size can't accomplish. (WATCH)

9) Detroit Lions tight end Eric Ebron admits to having a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde persona. Off the field, he likes to laugh and chill, but on the field he says he's an evil creature nobody wants to talk to or mess with. (WATCH)

10)  Oakland Raiders rookie linebacker Khalil Mack says he can play the guitar and sing a little bit, but admits he may not be good enough for "American Idol." (WATCH)
