Watch Nike ad featuring Kyler Murray, who is projected to go No. 1 overall in NFL Draft

With the NFL Draft on Thursday in Nashville, Nike posted a video of an ad featuring projected No. 1 overall pick Allen’s Kyler Murray, the Heisman winning quarterback from Oklahoma.

The video is a minute long and features plays from Murray’s day at Oklahoma and Allen, where he won 3-straight UIL state titles and went 42-0 as a starting quarterback. He was named Gatorade Football Player of the Year as a senior in 2014.

Last season at OU, Murray passed for over 4,300 yards, rushed for 1,000 and accounted for 54 TDs.

Most mock drafts have Murray going No. 1 overall to the Arizona Cardinals.

Round 1 will take place on Thursday and begins at 7 p.m.
