After seeing Summers #4 at UNLV, I thought he would look good with #44 in the pros.

Among the rookie corners, I think the smaller guy Burnett would be better suited for 20 and the bigger guy Lewis would be better suited for 40.

Wallace with 17 is interesting. Seems like a fast number for a fast guy.

They misidentified McDonald as a RB (and since RB's cannot be #87, that should have been obvious).

No problems with the numbers for our new big uglies. 96 for Ziggy, 65 for Urbik, 73 for Sonny, and 61 for Shipley. They all seem to fit. However, they did give 73 to UDFA OT Ramon Foster as well.

The 7th round TE got Nate's old number. I figured he would have something the 40's since he is more of an H-back than a true TE.

Burnett's 40 and Lewis's 20 simply recognizes that Burnett will be twice as successful as Lewis.

Didn't the Steelers have another WR named Cedric that wore #80?

summers has to wear 44. thats a great number for a big rb to wear. i hate keyshawn johnson for a lot of reasons but mainly for being the first wr in the nfl to wear a number not in the 80's. wr's that have a number not in the 80's is still strange to me

Keyshawn wasn't the first to do that, Frank. A 4-time all-pro and a 13 year vet from Philly named Lee Harold Carmichael I believe wore #17.

You guys are small time. How about a 7 time All-Pro wideout back in the 1960's? Does 542 Receptions for 10,266 Yards and 85 Touchdowns from Lance Alworth do anything for you?

Numbers for WR's not in the 80's being strange?

You mean something like seeing Holmes running around out there and having flash backs to Kordell?

I still get those on occasion......

I agree. I like the WR's in the 80's, but after awhile you run out of numbers....

Kordell was a WR who wore #10, catching 14 passes for 235 yards a 1 TD the year before Keyshawn was drafted. If only he stayed at WR...what might have been...

The uniform numbering rules changed in the early '70s.

Players that had numbers outside the required 80-89 for receivers before the change were grandfathered in and not required to change them...hence, Howard Carmichael, Fred Belitenekoff, Cliff Branch, etc. could keep their low receiver numbers.

The rule was changed more recently to allow receivers to wear numbers in the teens, too.

The only one I don't get is Me-Shawn. He came before the amendment to the rule. Was he an emergency QB?
