Atlanta Falcons fans are quite pleased with their team's performance at the 2022 NFL Draft. By the time the three-day event finished, the Falcons walked away with eight new prospects to build around for the future, highlighted by USC wide receiver Drake London (No. 8) and Penn State edge rusher Arnold Ebikete (No. 38).

Fans can now get their favorite draftee's name on a jersey after the Falcons revealed on Friday which number each rookie would be sporting next season. The team did it in style, though, revealing each digit in an 8-bit video-game style picture.

London will sport No. 5 after wearing No. 15 during his time at USC. The NFL introduced new jersey rules last season to give players more flexibility, so it'll be interesting to see if the Falcons' top pick in 2022 can make an impact wearing a single-digit number.

Some of the other notable names changing numbers are Ebikete, who will be going from No. 17 to No. 47, and former Cincinnati quarterback Desmond Ridder, who's swapped from No. 9 to No. 4.

Fans will get a chance to see each of the Falcons' first-year players wearing their new numbers when the rookie minicamp opens on Friday, May 13.
