Before the 2016 NFL Draft, Nike, Beaverton, Ore., signed to endorsement deals several football players who will most likely be selected by various teams during the draft.

Included are former Notre Dame wide receiver Will Fuller, Ole Miss offensive tackle Laremy Tunsil, North Dakota State quarterback Carson Wentz, University of Oregon defensive end DeForest Buckner, University of California-Berkeley quarterback Jared Goff and University of Memphis quarterback Paxton Lynch.

Goff and Wentz are being projected by numerous draft analysts as the players who will be selected first and second overall, while Lynch is expected to be the third quarterback taken in the draft.

Many experts consider Fuller, Tunsil and Buckner among the best players at their respective positions in the 2016 draft class, and all three will likely be selected in the first round on April 28, according to multiple media reports.
