Watch: Kyler Murray Signs With Nike, Releases Ad Ahead of NFL Draft

Murray is the projected No. 1 overall pick in this year's draft.

Former Oklahoma Sooners quarterback and projected top overall pick Kyler Murray signed an endorsement deal with Nike just one day before the 2019 NFL draft takes place in Nashville.

In an ad released on Wednesday, Murray headlined Nike's latest class of rookie endorsers, which also include quarterback Dwayne Haskins and running back Bryce Love.

"I've always dreamed of being a professional athlete," Murray says in the ad. "But honestly, I want to be the best that ever played the game."

Former Oklahoma quarterback and 2018 No. 1 overall pick Baker Mayfield also signed with Nike last year. The company is the uniform provider for every NFL team.

The NFL draft will take place on Thursday, April 25.
