The Los Angeles Rams announced jersey numbers for their 2021 draft class on Friday, revealing what digits each of their nine rookies will wear in the NFL. No rookie took a single-digit number, nor did any of them take advantage of the league’s loosened rules on jersey number restrictions.

Here are the numbers each rookie will wear in 2021:

  • WR Tutu Atwell: 15

  • LB Ernest Jones: 50

  • DL Bobby Brown III: 95

  • CB Robert Rochell: 31

  • TE Jacob Harris: 87

  • DE Earnest Brown IV: 90

  • RB Jake Funk: 34

  • WR Ben Skowronek: 81

  • OLB Chris Garrett: 48

So as you probably noticed, Rochell will be wearing the number Darious Williams has worn with the Rams. That means Williams will be switching his number, potentially to a single digit thanks to the NFL’s new rule. Williams wore No. 1 at UAB, so that could be an option.

Funk took Malcolm Brown’s old number after he left to join the Dolphins as a free agent. Skowronek will wear Gerald Everett’s number, while Garrett is taking Travin Howard’s number. Ernest Jones will wear Samson Ebukam’s vacated number, as well.

We’ll have to wait and see what numbers Williams and Howard choose.
