The 2012 NFL Draft is Thursday, and Zennie62.com and Tout.com will be there. As we approach, the news is heating up. Top NFL Draft players are inking sponsorship deals, like top Alabama Cornerback Morris Claborne, who Twitter tweeted this:
I am officially a NIKE guy!!! Thank u God
That means Nike’s giving him money to wear their stuff. And that dollar amount was not disclosed. (There was no other news or blog report – the first one’s here.) But given that Nike’s paid as much as $60 million for Tiger Woods’ it’s a safe bet Morris Claiborne’s NFL career’s off to a great start.
Where will he go? Some now say The Vikings may take him in the third spot.
In related notes, teammate Courtney Upshaw sent this Twitter tweet:
I will be signing auotgraphs tomorrow starting at 1 at University Collectibles in Huntsville, AL – http://on.fb.me/IErGA8 #RollTide
