Rookie QB Jacoby Brissett to wear No. 7 with Patriots

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. -- The New England Patriots have formalized their complete list of rookie jersey numbers, which helps fill out the picture after learning last week that top pick Cyrus Jones will wear No. 24.

Quarterback Jacoby Brissett wore No. 12 at NC State, but that is taken (and will never be worn by a Patriots player other than Tom Brady again). So he lands with No. 7 to lead off the list.

9 – CB V'Angelo Bentley (Illinois)

16 – WR Devin Lucien (Arizona State)

19 – WR Malcolm Mitchell (Georgia)

24 – CB Cyrus Jones (Alabama)

27 – RB D.J. Foster (Arizona State)

31 – CB Jonathan Jones (Auburn)

35 – CB Cre’Von LeBlanc (Florida Atlantic)

44 – TE Steven Scheu (Vanderbilt)

47 – LB C.J. Johnson (Mississippi)

48 – LB Kamu Grugier-Hill (Eastern Illinois)
