Bills' draft picks claim their jersey numbers
With the 2014 NFL Draft concluding last week, the Buffalo Bills and the rest of the National Football League have added what will likely be some of the final important pieces to each team's puzzle for the upcoming season. The draft classes have been identified, and the Bills' rookies made a decision on their look for 2014.
The team announced the jersey numbers for each of the class of 2014, and it all starts with first round selection Sammy Watkins. In his time at Clemson, Watkins wore the number '2' as a wide receiver, but that wasn't available to him in the NFL.
Perhaps putting to good use all the old Ryan Fitzpatrick jerseys still in circulation, Watkins chose the number '14' to start his playing career in Buffalo. In addition to Watkins, offensive tackle Cyrus Kouandjio (number 71), linebacker Preston Brown (number 52), cornerback Ross Cockrell (number 29), guard Cyril Richardson (number 68), linebacker Randell Johnson (number 93) and offensive tackle Seantrel Henderson (number 66) all made their choices on jersey numbers as well.
Giving fans a glimpse of how they'll look on the team's jerseys, the Bills' equipment Twitter feed posted a picture.
The official numbers for all the undrafted free agents have yet to be released.
