Our good son Saquon Barkely can add the nation's most popular NFL jersey to his list of accolades. Reported by the Allentown Morning Call's Mark Wogenrich, Barkley tops the list of NFL jerseys sold at all 610 DICK's retail locations across the country. Super Bowl 52-watching-winning Carson Wentz is second, followed by Dallas teammates Zeke Elliot and Dak Prescott.

You can toy with the tracker yourself here, and follow Barkley's jersey exploits whenever your heart desires. Other than being a fun thing for Nittany Lion fans to talk about, jersey sales put a nice chunk of change in Barkley's pocket. According to a 2016 CNN Money article, players get two-thirds of the profit from their jersey sales.

Barkley, the No. 2 overall pick in the 2018 NFL draft, remains one of 22 draft picks unsigned, with the majority being first-rounders (14/22).
