Rams announce jersey numbers for 2023 rookies

It’s always exciting to see which jersey numbers new players on the Los Angeles Rams will wear. With 14 drafted rookies, there will be a lot of unfamiliar faces on the roster but at least we now know what numbers they’ll be wearing.

On Friday, the Rams announced the jersey numbers for their 14 draft picks, beginning with Steve Avila and ending with Mr. Irrelevant, Desjuan Johnson. A lot of rookies unsurprisingly took numbers from former Rams who left this offseason, while Stetson Bennett will wear Kurt Warner’s old number.
