Before the 2015 NFL Draft takes place, Nike has officially confirmed they’ve signed both first overall picks, Marcus Mariota and Jameis Winston to endorsement deals.

Both quarterbacks are the last two Heisman Trophy winners, respectively. Nike has also signed Wisconsin running back Melvin Gordon, Alabama wide receiver Amari Cooper – the two runners-up to Mariota in this year’s Heisman voting, and Georgia running back Todd Gurley to endorsement deals too.

“Jameis has stated his innocence regarding serious charges made against him,” a Nike spokesman said in a statement provided to ESPN.com. “We’ll continue to monitor the situation.”

Winston is likely to be the No. 1 overall pick in the NFL draft, which will take place in Chicago beginning on April 30, as the other players are likely to follow in the first round.
