By David Kenyon

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers selected Jameis Winston No. 1 overall in the 2015 NFL draft, but the second pick of the Tennessee Titans, Marcus Mariota, sold the most jerseys in May.

According to ESPN’s Darren Rovell, the third spot goes to New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, despite the gunslinger’s involvement in “Deflategate.”

Per NFL Shop, Russell Wilson, Odell Beckham Jr., Rob Gronkowski, Colin Kaepernick, Dez Bryant, Aaron Rodgers and Peyton Manning round out the top 10.

Philadelphia Eagles backup quarterback Tim Tebow held down the No. 15 position, topping big-name players like Andrew Luck and Tony Romo.

Seattle Seahawks supporters made an appearance at No. 20, seeing the “12th Man” jerseys edge out Jason Witten, Ndamukong Suh and Romo.

San Diego Chargers running back Melvin Gordon and Oakland Raiders wide receiver Amari Cooper were the only other rookies to appear in the top 25, with Gordon at No. 24 and Cooper behind him.

Other players listed include DeMarco Murray (11), J.J. Watt (12), Marshawn Lynch (13), NaVorro Bowman (14), Joe Haden (16), Derek Carr (17) and Kam Chancellor (19).
