PROVO, Utah – Former BYU quarterback Zach Wilson has become one of the biggest stories in the 2021 NFL Draft. The blue-chip draft prospect has skyrocketed up draft boards, landed endorsement deals, and now murals are going up in honor of him.
For this week’s 2021 NFL Draft, Bose Headphones will have murals emerge for three of the top prospects in this year’s draft. Wilson is one of the three. The other two include Clemon’s Trevor Lawrence and Ohio State’s Justin Fields.
Bose Headphones contracted Aljay Fuimaono from Manusina Art to create the Zach Wilson mural. The mural is located in Provo off Center Street near Guru’s and Good Move Cafe.
Fuimaono, who has created art for celebrities and athletes in the past, is a Utah resident in Vineyard. He was given the autonomy to be creative with the project. Fuimaono completed the mural of Wilson on Friday with a tagline that read, “Defeat the noise, rule the quiet.”

The mural features a portrait of Wilson on vinyl. Wilson’s jersey in Fuimaono’s art was left blank for now. Fuimaono and his team will return to the mural on Thursday night to fill in the jersey for the team that ends up drafting the former BYU star.

Wilson isn’t expected to be waiting long to hear his name called on Thursday night. All mock drafts currently project Wilson to go to the New York Jets with the 2nd overall pick. Once Wilson’s name is announced, Fuimaono and his team will complete the mural.
Zach Wilson and his family will be in Cleveland for the first round of Thursday’s NFL Draft. Wilson is the first BYU player to be in the green room at an NFL Draft since Ziggy Ansah in 2013.
