Michael Sam jerseys No.2 selling among all NFL rookies

Michael Sam jerseys sell more than No. 1 pick Jadeveon Clowney in 48 fewer hours.

Orders for Michael Sam's St. Louis Rams jerseys were the second-highest of any NFL rookie drafted this weekend. According to the NFL, the top-five rankings as of Monday morning include three quarterbacks, the No. 1 pick in the whole draft...and Michael Sam:

1. Johnny Manziel, Cleveland Browns

2. Michael Sam, St. Louis Rams

3. Jadeveon Clowney, Houston Texans

4. Teddy Bridgewater, Minnesota Vikings

5. Blake Bortles, Jacksonville Jaguars

"This is unprecedented for a Day 3 pick, let alone a seventh round pick, to crack the top five rookies sold following Draft weekend," said NFL spokesperson Joanna Hunter.

Compounding that is the fact that Sam's jerseys were not available for sale until Saturday evening when he was picked. The jerseys of the other players on the top-five list have been available since Thursday, allowing for 48 hours more of sales.

We've said Sam would be a huge merchandise draw for whatever NFL team takes him, and the St. Louis Rams are already experiencing that less than 48 hours after his selection.

You can order your Michael Sam jersey at the NFL Shop.
