Jersey numbers for new Redskins players

Here are some of the jersey numbers for the Redskins 2011 draft picks, and free agent acquisitions:

– Ryan Kerrigan: 53
– Jarvis James: 99
– Leonard Hankerson: 85
– Roy Helu: 26
– Niles Paul: 84
– Evan Royster: 25
– Brandyn Thompson: 40
– Chris Nelid: 66

– OJ Atogwe: 20
– Jabar Gaffney: 10

– Fred Davis: 83 (changed his number from 86)

A couple of personal notes:

* Extremely classy move by Atogwe, foregoing #21 – a number he’s worn his entire college and NFL career – out of respect for the late Sean Taylor. The more I hear about this kid, the more I love him and the acquisition overall.

* I’m a big fan of Helu’s jersey selection. You could say things worked out pretty well for the last running back that Shanahan drafted that chose #26 as his jersey number.

    Who survives the cattle-call at WR. I’m thinking:

    SANTANA MOSS
    LEONARD HANKERSON
    JABBAR GAFFNEY
    ANTHONY ARMSTRONG
    with NILES PAUL taking BRANDON BANKS’ slot.

    O-Line

    T.WILLIAMS/C OLDENBURG
    K LICHTENSTEIGER/W SMITH
    W MONTGOMERY/E COOK
    C CHESTER/A HICKS
    J BROWN/S CAPERS

    RB/FB

    R TORAIN
    T HIGHTOWER
    R HELU
    M SELLERS
    D YOUNG

    TE

    C COOLEY
    F DAVIS
    L PAULSEN

    QB

    J BECK
    R GROSSMAN
    B CHAPPELL
    Looking at this Q-back list makes me think the REDSKINS are hoping for one of the two top picks in the 2012 draft!
