The first draft class of the New Meadowlands stadium is currently settling in. What a treat for these young players to end up in a situation where the team has brand new state of the art equipment and facilities. These kids today, I’ll tell yaahh! While they were settling in, someone came up to them and said, hey rookie, pick a jersey number. If the number is available, they will get it, if not, then they won’t. Some of them were lucky enough to get the same numbers they wore in college, something I’m told is like a link on a chain to some players. It is extremely important to some and doesn’t mean anything to others.
Let’s take a look at what jersey numbers were selected. I will list the rookie players below in the same order in which they were drafted over the weekend during the 2010 NFL Draft.
Round 1 – DE Jason “Wild Thing” Pierre-Paul will wear No. 90
Round 2 – DT Linval Joseph will wear No. 97
Round 3 – S Chad Jones will wear No. 35
Round 4 – LB Phillip Dillard will wear No. 55
Round 5 – OG Mitch Petrus will wear No. 62
Round 6 – LB/DE Adrian Tracy will wear No. 98
Round 7 – P Matt Dodge will wear No. 6
Do you own any authentic New York Giants jersey’s or any kind of NFL jersey at all? What players did you get?
