Newly Drafted Nittany Lions Receive NFL Jersey Numbers


Fifteen former Penn State football stars have now left for the NFL. Now, as they begin their rookie years, a handful of Nittany Lions are getting their new jersey numbers.

Offensive lineman Rasheed Walker will wear No. 63 with the Green Bay Packers after they selected him at No. 249 overall this weekend. Joining him in Wisconsin is undrafted linebacker Ellis Brooks, who will wear No. 41.

The Baltimore Ravens’ newest punter, Jordan Stout, will wear number 11 with the team. Stout wore No. 98 at Penn State, which will now be taken by fellow rookie Travis Jones at Baltimore.

Additionally, new Arizona Cardinal Jesse Luketa will wear No. 43 in the desert. He’s taken a small leap from his No. 40 in college.

Over the weekend, first-round receiver Jahan Dotson confirmed he would wear No. 1 with the Washington Commanders this season. Penn State’s other newly drafted Nittany Lions have yet to receive jersey numbers.

You can’t get these rookie shirts just yet, but they will roll out in the coming weeks as they settle into their new homes.
