49ers rookie jersey numbers for now, history of those numbers

New, comments

Some of these are going to change, but here's what we know thus far, as well as history behind those numbers.

The San Francisco 49ers hosted their rookie minicamp this past week, welcoming draft picks, undrafted free agent signings, and tryout candidates. The team handed out jersey numbers to all the players, and Matt Barrows jotted down 15 of the numbers. I have posted those below, along with the history of each number (via Pro Football Reference). 23 was assigned to two players as the team remains short of numbers due to 12 retired jerseys. We will see this in the preseason, with one offensive and one defensive player splitting some of the numbers. There are usually a few such players.

The list was not a complete list of rookies, but got the bulk of them. The 49ers posted some video from the rookie minicamp, and I spotted the following numbers: 15, 19, 20, 44, 49, 56, 69, 71. Barrows did not include them on his list, and it is likely some of them were tryout numbers, as opposed to players already under contract.

Fooch's update: We have a few more numbers from the 49ers.
