You can check off another to-do for the Arizona Cardinals 2022 NFL Draft class.
The team announced the the new harvest figures for the season Monday.
Second-round tight end Trey McBride will wear number 85, while Arizona’s pair of third-round pass rushers Cameron Thomas and Myjai Sanders are expected to wear numbers 97 and 41, respectively.
As for sixth-rounder Keaontay Ingram, the running back will wear No. 30. Fellow sixth-rounder and offensive lineman Lecitus Smith returns to his college days with No. 54.
Seventh-rounders Christian Matthew and Jesse Luketa also turned things around from their college days, opting for numbers 35 and 43 respectively.
And with No. 54 off the board, seventh-round lineman Marquis Hayes opted for No. 78.
The news of the rookie jersey numbers comes after the team announced that wide receiver Marquise Brown would wear No. 2 in her first year in the desert.
The Cardinals added Brown on Day 1 of the draft after trading the 23rd overall pick in exchange for the wide and 100th overall pick, which was used on Thomas.
The jersey changes won’t stop there either.
With McBride taking No. 85, wide receiver Antoine Wesley is now in the market for new numbers.
The same can be said for tight end David Wells, who was No. 41 last season.
