With the 2016 NFL draft approaching , these accomplished athletes and potential first round picks have captured a nice endorsement deal from the coveted Nike brand to start off their professional careers. The draft order has done some major shuffling at the top with the recent trades of the Los Angeles Rams and Philadelphia Eagles for the top two picks, where all indications are pointing towards them both using their selections on quarterbacks. We will see how things unfold at the NFL draft on April 28-30.
