Detroit Lions Rookies Get Their Uniform Numbers

The Detroit Lions’ 2014 draft class will step on the practice field for the first time on Friday when the team’s rookie minicamp begins. We now know what number each player will be wearing when he makes that important step.

It was previously announced that number ten overall pick Eric Ebron will wear number 85 as the team wasted no time getting jerseys up for sale.

Absent from this list is fourth-round pick Larry Webster, his number is still to be determined.

Some numbers may change prior to the start of the regular season. It wouldn’t be unusual for a rookie to change to a number that was previously occupied by someone who ultimately didn’t make the roster.
