The top players in the NFL Draft will sign crazy contracts with companies like Nike, Adidas, Under Armor, Coca-Cola, etc. They will make a crazy amount of money and will go on to live pretty good lives. But Thursday, there is one prospect with the most unique endorsement deal. He is someone you will only hear about Thursday and maybe Friday morning.

Forrest Lamp, a Western Kentucky offensive lineman, signed a deal with the Los Angeles-based Lamps Plus. A press release from the company proved that this is no joke.

“While his name is perfect to endorse our company, we really like Forrest’s work ethic and enthusiasm,” Lamps Plus CEO Dennis Swanson said, per Pro Football Talk. “He will shine at the professional level.”

Lamp was excited clearly.

The opportunity to partner with Lamps Plus before my rookie NFL season, especially with my last name, is the perfect scenario,” Lamp said in a press release. “I’m confident that my girlfriend Natosha and I will have the best-decorated and most well-lit rookie home in our new team city!”

Then next step for Lamp is to be picked by the Los Angeles Rams or Los Angeles Chargers.

Where is Lamp projected to go? says first round.
