Though some players had already leaked the information over the last couple weeks, the Ravens have officially announced jersey numbers for their 2020 draft class.
These are subject to change when final cuts are made at the end of the preseason, but below is a look at the digits rookies will be wearing.
ILB Patrick Queen — No. 48
Lowdown: This jersey number goes from one Patrick (Onwuasor) to another, but few others have worn it in team history.
RB J.K. Dobbins — No. 27
Lowdown: A handful of players have donned Ray Rice’s old number since his infamous 2014 release, but Dobbins will certainly draw comparisons with the last Ravens running back drafted 55th overall.
DT Justin Madubuike — No. 92
Lowdown: Wearing Haloti Ngata’s old jersey is a lot to live up to, but Madubuike’s pass-rush ability gives him a good chance to be a factor in the rotation right away.
WR Devin Duvernay — No. 13
Lowdown: John Brown is the only notable player to have worn this number for the Ravens, so the slot man from Texas has a chance to make it his own.
ILB Malik Harrison — No. 40
Lowdown: I prefer linebackers wearing numbers in the 50s or 90s, but the Ravens certainly hope Harrison works out better than Kenny Young, who last wore this number.
OL Tyre Phillips — No. 74
Lowdown: Phillips takes James Hurst’s old jersey number, but the Ravens would also like him to assume his role as the primary backup offensive tackle.
G Ben Bredeson — No. 67
Lowdown: If you remembered anyone other than Lawrence Guy donning this number for Baltimore, I tip my cap to you — and might suggest picking up another hobby or two.
DL Broderick Washington — No. 96
Lowdown: Domata Peko most recently more this jersey, but Adalius Thomas was easily the most accomplished player to sport it as he made two Pro Bowls in seven years with the Ravens.
WR James Proche — No. 11
Lowdown: Former Ravens wide receivers to wear this number include Breshad Perriman, Kamar Aiken, Seth Roberts, and Patrick Johnson, so the bar isn’t very high for the sixth-round rookie.
S Geno Stone — No. 26
Lowdown: Baltimore will be thrilled if the Iowa product can be more like Dawan Landry than Matt Elam at the safety position, but Rod Woodson set the very high standard for this jersey number.
