Falcons 2016 draft class have their jersey numbers

Make sure you rush out to buy your Wes Schweitzer jersey before they sell out!

Falcons fans rejoice! Your 2016 rookie class finally has their numbers, which will make keeping up with them in training camp a tad bit easier. Here are the numbers that the 2016 class will be wearing during camp.

SS Keanu Neal: 22

Formerly worn by the likes of Dezmen Southward and Asante Samuel. Hope he lives up to that enduring legacy.

LB Deion Jones: 45

Formerly worn by TJ Duckett and Tom Moriarty. I really want to make a Sherlock Holmes joke right here.

TE Austin Hooper: 81

Once worn by Billy "White Shoes" Johnson, Terrance Mathis, Michael Haynes and Peerless Price. It's also the dyslexic version of his number at Stanford, so there's that.

LB De'Vondre Campbell: 59

This number was formerly donned by the likes of John Rade and Michael Boley. Here's to hoping that Campbell makes this a memorable number in Falcons history.

OG Wes Schweitzer: 71

Previously worn by John Zook and Kroy Biermann. And yes, this does mean that Kroy is no longer on the team.

WR Devin Fuller: 87

Players Claude Humphrey and Bert Emanuel previously donned 87 for the Falcons.
