Six More Nittany Lions Receive First NFL Jersey Numbers

During this year’s NFL Draft season, 15 former Penn State football players headed off to the NFL. In the aftermath, some of those players, including Jahan Dotson and Jaquan Brisker, got their new jersey numbers.

Over the course of his tenure at Penn State, defensive lineman Arnold “AK” Ebiketie dominated in his No. 17 threads. Now, AK will wear the No. 47 jersey with the Atlanta Falcons.

In Atlanta, Ebiketie will have a familiar face with him on the defensive line in Derrick Tangelo. Tangelo signed as a free agent with the Falcons shortly after the NFL Draft and will wear No. 99.

After the 49ers took him in the sixth round, defensive back Tariq Castro-Fields will don No. 36 in San Francisco.

Athletic linebacker Brandon Smith will wear the No. 40 jersey for the Carolina Panthers after being selected in the fourth round of the 2022 NFL Draft.

Following the draft, Smith was joined in Carolina by running back John Lovett, who signed as an undrafted free agent. Lovett will don No. 37 as he vies for one of the team’s limited roster spots.

Former Penn State wide receiver Irvin Charles also signed as an undrafted free agent. With the New York Jets, Charles will sport the No. 82 jersey, which was last worn by Jamison Crowder.
