Orders for Michael Sam jerseys are ranking squarely with some of the NFL draft’s biggest names, reports Outsports.com.

Sam’s jersey (the actual number yet to be assigned by the NFL League Office) was is second-highest-selling jersey among this weekend’s picks, trailing only Cleveland quarterback Johnny Manziel.

“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.

Sam was drafted by the St. Louis Rams in a seventh round pick on Saturday, becoming the NFL’s first openly gay draftee.

The jerseys are available at the NFL shop.
