Carson Wentz Has the Sixth Best Selling Jersey in the NFL
Since being drafted second overall by the Philadelphia Eagles back in April, only five NFL players have sold more jerseys than quarterback Carson Wentz.
Rookie running back Ezekiel Elliot has sold the most jerseys since being drafted fourth overall by the Dallas Cowboys. He beat out veteran stars like New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady and Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton, who was last season's Most Valuable Player.
Here's a list of the players with the best selling jerseys between April and June, according to NFLShop.com:
- Ezekiel Elliot (Dallas Cowboys)
- Tom Brady (New England Patriots
- Odell Beckham Jr. (New York Giants)
- Cam Newton (Carolina Panthers)
- Ron Gronkowski (New England Patriots)
- Carson Wentz (Philadelphia Eagles)
It's important to point out that both Wentz and Elliot were selected after Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff, who doesn't appear in the top six.
This writer can't be the only one that thinks that fans in the state of North Dakota helped Carson Wentz get into the top ten, can he?
