New, comments

The San Francisco 49ers have handed out jersey numbers for their rookie class. We take an early look.

Bradley Leeb-US PRESSWIRE

The San Francisco 49ers added eleven new players to the team over the weekend at the 2013 NFL Draft, and will be adding several more when they officially sign undrafted free agents to contracts. For now, the team has announced jersey numbers for the drafted rookies, as well as some of their free agent additions.

Rookies

5 - QB B.J. Daniels
11 - WR Quinton Patton
33 - CB Marcus Cooper
35 - S Eric Reid
38 - RB Marcus Lattimore
54 - LB Nick Moody
71 - OT Carter Bykowski
71-- DL Quinton Dial
89 - TE Vance McDonald
95 - DL Cornellius "Tank" Carradine
96 - OLB Corey Lemonier

Veterans

9 - K Phil Dawson
19 - WR Marlon Moore
8984 - Cameron Morrah
24 - CB Nnamdi Asomugha
43 - S Craig Dahl
51 - LB Dan Skuta
90 - DT Glenn Dorsey

You'll notice some numbers appear twice, including No. 17 (Dial, Bykowski) and No. 24 (Nnamdi, Dixon).

Jim Harbaugh was hoping McDonald would go with No. 89, in an homage to former tight end and Jim Harbaugh head coach Mike Ditka. So that explains that one.

The most "interesting" number, if you will, has to be No. 11 going to WR Quinton Patton. That number had been claimed for a few years, but it's back on the market, and Patton grabs it. The 49ers are an interesting group in that a lot of their wide receivers sport numbers in the teens. Michael Crabtree wears No. 15, A.J. Jenkins sports No. 17 and Kyle Williams wears No. 10.

Marcus Lattimore gets Dashon Goldson's old number, 38, which Eric Branch indicated was the number worn by former South Carolina great, George Rogers.

Do you plan on purchasing a rookie jersey yet? If so, which number will get the call?
