It’s time to get your new Broncos jerseys for the 2019 NFL season after the Denver Broncos confirmed the numbers for the 2019 rookie class.
As expected, 2019 first-round pick Noah Fant will wear #87 formerly worn by wide receivers Ed McCaffrey and Eric Decker, and last worn by Jordan Taylor, who joined Minnesota in free agency earlier this year.
Rookie offensive lineman Dalton Risner will begin his Broncos career wearing #66, once worn by Broncos great Tom Nalen with #71 — his college number at Kansas State — already belonging to Austin Schlottmann.
The Broncos’ quarterback of the future Drew Lock will wear his long-time #3. Trevor Siemian had the number in 2015 preseason before he switched to #13 and by Colby Wadman last season, but the punter will take #6 for the upcoming season.
Former Ohio State defensive lineman Dre’Mont Jones will wear #93 with linebacker Justin Hollins in #52.
As he revealed last week on social media, wide receiver Juwann Winfree will wear #15, formerly worn by receivers including Brandon Marshall and River Cracraft, but known more for the fun-filled Tim Tebow years.
While the Broncos have yet to sign any of their drafted rookies, they will take part in rookie minicamp starting Friday at UCHealth Training Center.
