Crosby and Nacua are joining a star-studded athlete roster with other NFL stars including Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts and Bryce Young of the Carolina Panthers. Aside from football, the Jordan Brand athlete roster includes NBA megastars Jayson Tatum, Luka Dončić and Zion Williamson, as well as several Major League Baseball players (Aaron Judge, Elly De La Cruz), boxers (Javon Walton of “Euphoria” fame) and others.

The first round of the 2024 NFL Draft is scheduled to take place Thursday at 8 p.m. ET. It can be watched via ABC, ESPN and the NFL Network.

Jordan Brand has been the subject of headlines recently. For instance, Orlando Magic forward Paolo Banchero debuted the Air Jordan 39 on April 20. He wore the look during Game 1 of the first round of the NBA Playoffs. Banchero and the Magic are matched up against the Cleveland Cavaliers during the first round.
