There is a large contingent of NFL fans who can’t wait for the rookie jersey numbers to be released so they can go out and buy the latest and greatest uniform for their favorite team. For the Pittsburgh Steelers, they have finally released those digits for their rookie class.
Check them out:
Here are the numbers:
1st Round Pick — Terrell Edmunds — No. 34
2nd Round Pick — James Washington — No. 13
3rd Round Pick — Mason Rudolph — No. 2
3rd Round Pick — Chukwuma Okorafor — No. 67
5th Round Pick — Marcus Allen — No. 27
5th Round Pick — Jaylen Samuels — No. 38
7th Round Pick — Joshua Frazier — No. 69
Before you go and buy some new threads, be warned. Rookies get what numbers are left, not what number they particularly want. For instance, Terrell Edmunds wore No. 22 while at Virginia Tech, but this number is occupied by running back Stevan Ridley. If Ridley doesn’t make the team, Edmunds could easily take the No. 22 jersey for the regular season.
In other words, unless you want to drop $100 on a jersey with the incorrect number, I’d hold off on buying these hot off the presses.
