Outsports reported jerseys for Sam, who was the draft's 249th pick, are currently second in sales -- ahead of defensive end Jadeveon Clowney, who was the first overall pick to the Houston Texas, and trailing only Johnny Manziel, the Heisman Trophy-winning first-round quarterback drafted by the Cleveland Browns.

"This is unprecedented for a Day 3 pick, let alone a seventh round pick, to crack the top five rookies sold following Draft weekend," an NFL spokesperson told the news outlet.
