With the completion of the NFL Draft comes a whole new roster of rookies playing for the first time on their new teams. As the official apparel brand of the NFL, Nike has already released a select group of rookie jerseys on their site for pre-order. The jerseys will ship 2-4 weeks after the players are given a number at training camp. Johnny Manziel is already selling a ton of jerseys, as he leads rookies in jersey sales since the draft. Manziel is also signed on with LeBron’s agency LRMR to represent him in marketing and contract talks. Johnny ‘Football’ already has sponsorship deals in place with Nike, Coca-Cola, and McDonald’s, so he will be certain to earn a lot of cash regardless of if he turns out to be a boom or bust. The NFL”s first openly gay player, Michael Sam, is second in jersey sales behind Manziel. Sam might not end up being a great player on the field for the St. Louis Rams, but he has already made a huge impact off the field. Jadeveon Clowney, Teddy Bridgewater, and Blake Bortles round out the top five in rookie jersey sales for the Nike NFL Draft Collection.

The Nike NFL Game Jerseys are available now at Nike.com and the NFLshop.com for $100.
