Today the Buffalo Bills announced the uniform numbers that will be worn by the team’s rookies for at least the upcoming rookie training camp. For the team’s top draft choices at least, this will likely be their numbers for the entire season. Lower draft selections may switch numbers if and when they make the team, as Chris White did last season.

The list of numbers:

CB Stephon Gilmore – 27
OT Cordy Glenn - 77
WR T.J. Graham - 11
LB Nigel Bradham - 53
CB Ron Brooks - 33
OT Zebrie Sanders - 66
LB Tank Carder - 45
C/G Mark Asper - 63
K John Potter - 3

Glenn and Graham’s number choices jump out at me, with Glenn taking Demetress Bell’s old number and Graham with Roscoe Parrish’s #11.

The team’s undrafted rookies were also assigned numbers:

QB Aaron Corp - 7
RB Chris Douglas - 35
CB Cris Hill - 39
S Delano Howell - 36
OT Paul Madsen - 73
P Shawn Powell - 6
C David Snow - 61
S Nick Sukay - 41
S Ian Wild - 42
LB Garrick Williams - 40

The “tryout” players that will also be at this weekend’s mini-camp will likely just get handed a random number when they arrive.
