On Thursday, Trevor Lawrence will be selected No. 1 overall by the Jacksonville Jaguars and all offically become an NFL player.
But Lawrence isn’t waiting until Thursday to cash in on some endorsements.
The overwhelming favorite for the No. 1 overall pick in the draft, has signed a multi-year endorsement deal with the cryptocurrency investment app Blockfolio. The terms of his deal hasn’t been disclosed, but Lawrence did receive a signing bonus that was paid out entirely in crypto and deposited into his Blockfolio account:

Future payments, however, are subject to whatever combination of dollars and cryptocurrency the future Jacksonville Jaguars QB desires, according to DealBook.
