LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. (AP) _ Former Oklahoma tailback Adrian Peterson was among eight top NFL draft prospects who went through a photo shoot through an endorsement deal with Nike.

Peterson and the seven other prospects ran speed and agility drills on a 50-yard practice field in Florida Wednesday before lining up for hours of pictures.

The photos will be used on magazine ads and a billboard. Nike wouldn't say how much the endorsement deals were worth.

Others involved were Marshawn Lynch, JaMarcus Russell, Calvin Johnson, Amobi Okoye, Gaines Adams, Leon Hall and Greg Olsen.

Former Notre Dame quarterback Brady Quinn was to have pictures taken at a later time.
