Tim Tebow Jersey Top Seller Among Rookies

In the weeks and months leading up to last Thursday's draft, one of the biggest story lines centered around former Florida quarterback Tim Tebow and how his game might translate to the NFL. Opinions ran the gamut ("He'll be a Pro Bowl QB!" to "His only chance will be at h-back."), but in the end, the Broncos thought enough of Tebow to select him with the 25th overall pick, and they're keeping him at quarterback.

Even if Denver had decided to move him to, say, offensive line, Tebow would still be wildly popular because of his collegiate success and his eminently likable off-field demeanor. Which helps explain why his No. 15 Broncos jersey was the top seller among rookies last weekend, followed by Ndamukong Suh, Sam Bradford, Eric Berry and Dez Bryant.

Conspicuously missing: Jimmy Clausen (I'm sure he was No. 6). Clearly, this is Charlie Weis' fault.
