The Jacksonville Jaguars picked UCF quarterback Blake Bortles with the No. 3 overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft and the Oveido, Florida product had one of the Top 5 selling rookie jerseys over the weekend following the draft.

This is somewhat of an ironic surprise, considering that so many people clamored for the Jaguars to pick Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel No. 3 overall because of the boost in sales for merchandise he would provide. Bortles though, is a very popular player from one of the largest universities in the country in UCF.

Top five picks, especially quarterbacks, generally have jerseys near the top of the charts as far as rookies sales as well, but it's neat to see the Jaguars pick right up there with the rest of the top picks.
