Twenty-nine players from Georgia were drafted in the 2017 NFL Draft.
As the rookies take part in their team activities they have been assigned their jersey numbers.
Some players have held onto numbers they’ve worn at Georgia high schools. Others have been forced to change numbers because of NFL rules or because the jersey is worn by a veteran player.
Some have received a number yet.
