After the 2021 NFL Draft concluded, the Cleveland Browns were a very popular option when it came to assessing which team put together the best rookie class. They were able to address several roster needs and seemed to grab players well below their expected draft positions.
Well, they have now announced all of the jersey numbers for those players in the upcoming season. Notable selections include the No. 20 for first-round cornerback Greg Newsome II and the No. 28 for second-round linebacker Jeremiah Owusu-Koramoah.
Thanks to the NFL's new jersey rules, Newsome had a chance to wear the No. 2 as he did during his college career. However, he opted to go a different way. In fact, none of the rookies stuck with the numbers they donned before being drafted into the NFL.
Rookie minicamp starts this upcoming weekend and everything is starting to become real for these young playmakers. They will attempt to improve a Browns team that made the playoffs last season for the first time since 2002. Cleveland has no plans to slow down that momentum in the coming years.
Browns Rookie Jersey Numbers
Here are the jersey numbers for the entire Browns rookie class:
- Cornerback Greg Newsome II -- No. 20
