Two NFL Draft Prospects are Using their Unique Names to Make Money

Before top draft prospects make money off NFL contracts, they’re using their names to sign endorsements.  Deals with shoe companies are inevitable, along with some from local businesses.  Two draft prospects are using their unusual names to their advantage.

WKU offensive lineman Forrest Lamp will likely be selected in tonight’s first round.  You might remember him from his touchdown catch in the WKU bowl game, but if you don’t, you probably remember Brick Tamland’s famous quote, “I love Lamp.”  Forrest is sharing his love for lamps by promoting Lamps Plus, the nation’s largest specialty lighting retailer.

Michigan tight end Jake Butt is expected to be selected in the second or third round tomorrow night.  Undoubtedly the best name in the draft, Butt is using it endorse Charmin toilet paper, a match made in heaven.
