It’s the start of Eagles’ rookie camp and the team has announced their five draft picks’ numbers. Let’s take a look and quick analysis:

Jordan Davis – #90

#90 hasn’t had much luck lately for the Eagles:

  • Ryan Kerrigan – 2021
  • Bruce Hector – 2019
  • Treyvon Hester – 2018
  • Justin Hamilton – 2017
  • Marcus Smith – 2014-2016
  • Clifton Geathers – 2013
  • Antonio Dixon – 2010-2012

Davis will look to be the best #90 for the Eagles since Corey Simon (won’t be hard to do)

Cameron Jergens – #51

Another not so great history with #51:

  • Shareef Miller – 2019
  • Steven Means – 2016-2017
  • Emmanuel Acho – 2013-2014
  • Jamar Cheney – 2011-2012
  • Antwan Barnes – 2010

With Jergens projecting to be the center of the future, the Eagles hope he can wear #51 like Alex Mack has in his career.

Nakobe Dean – #17

Poor Reid Sinnett, he loses his number before wearing it on the field. But this is a power move for Dean, as he keeps his college number and will want to show his doubters that #17 will be just as productive in the NFL. Brief history:

  • KeeSean Johnson – 2021
  • Alshon Jeffery – 2017-2020
  • Nelson Agholor – 2015-2016
  • Arrelious Benn – 2013

Kyron Johnson – #58

#58 went from two of the best defensive players the Eagles have had in the 2000s to being given to two players who didn’t do much.

  • Genard Avery – 2019-2021
  • L.J. Fort – 2019
  • Jordan Hicks – 2015-2018
  • Trent Cole – 2005-2014

Grant Calcaterra – #47

FINALLY SOMEONE TO GIVE #47 LIFE. He HAS to be better than the last guy… right?

  • Nathan Gerry – 2017-2020
  • Trey Burton – 2014-2016
  • Gerard Lawson – 2010
