Being an NFL rookie already comes with the stress of getting acclimated to a faster league, learning a new playbook, and plenty of hazing. However, newcomers to the National Football League also need to be taught some sartorial essentials apparently, such as learning how to tie a tie, at least according to this Vine posted by the Detroit Lions.

The rookies are struggling to get their ties together as an instructor provides step-by-step instructions on how to perfect this look. Props to the Lions first round pick, Laken Tomlinson, who has his tie fully done, complete with the crucial dimple. 

The Lions' rooks shouldn't feel too bad, though. According to Google, most guys don't know how to complete this simple task.
