Patriots reveal jersey numbers for 2020 rookie class


The New England Patriots have given official jersey numbers to their rookies.

Rookies are assigned jersey numbers in training camp but those are often changed once the team makes cuts and announces its 53-man roster for Week 1.

The Patriots selected 10 players in the 2020 NFL Draft, and eight of them are currently on the active roster. Seventh-round offensive lineman Dustin Woodard retired in the offseason and fifth-round kicker Justin Rohrwasser is on the practice squad. Undrafted rookie running back J.J. Taylor was promoted from the practice squad to the 53-man roster on Monday after Damien Harris was placed on injured reserve.
