He anticipates being selected Friday in round two of the NFL Draft but before he becomes a client of the league, Derrick Henry has already signed his first endorsement deal.

The former Alabama standout has found a home with Nike, a well-established brand that has housed names like Michael Jordan, LeBron James, Kevin Durant and Dwayne Wade.

On Wednesday, Henry posted a photo via Twitter sharing his latest accomplishment.

He joins top-ranked quarterback prospects Jarred Goff (California), Paxton Lynch (Memphis) and defensive line prospect DeForest Buckner (Oregon) to ink a contract with Nike.

Henry, who won the 2015 Heisman Trophy, guided Alabama to a national championship last season.

He rushed for 2,219 yards and 28 touchdowns on 395 carries.
