Falcons Draft Class Selects Jersey Numbers

New, comments

That was fast.

Per our beloved friend Jay Adams at the mothership, the rookie draft class has already selected its numbers:

  • OT Jake Matthews - 70
  • DE Ra'Shede Hageman - 77
  • S Dezmen Southward - 41
  • RB Devonta Freeman - 33
  • LB Prince Shembo - 53
  • CB Ricardo Allen - 37
  • LB Marquis Spruill - 51
  • LB Yawin Smallwood - 54
  • LB Tyler Starr - 49

The most interesting note, as Vaughn McClure noted this morning, is Freeman wearing #33. You may recall the last man who wore that, Michael Turner, setting several franchise records while serving as the team's lead bulldozer for several seasons.

Nothing thrilling here other than that, but then, I don't get that excited about jersey numbers. Weigh in!
