And Garrett Bradbury isn’t the only one that made a bold choice

Not long after he was drafted, we let you know that new Minnesota Vikings’ center Garrett Bradbury had chosen to wear the #56 for Minnesota going forward. On Monday, the team released the numbers of the rest of their 2019 draft class, and Bradbury isn’t the only one that’s made a bit of a bold choice.

The man that the Vikings selected after Bradbury, Alabama tight end Irv Smith Jr., has decided that he’s going to wear the number of another Hall of Famer. . .Randy Moss.

Yes, Smith has chosen #84 for his jersey number. He’s not the first person to select the number since Moss was traded away. Several players, most notably Cordarrelle Patterson, have tried to live up to that number’s reputation and haven’t been able to do so. Perhaps Smith will be able to do it, but he’s got a long. . .loooooooooooooong. . .way to go yet, obviously.

Along with #56 and #84, here are the numbers that will be worn by the rest of the Vikings’ draft class of 2019.

  • Alexander Mattison - #25
  • Dru Samia - #73
  • Cameron Smith - #59
  • Armon Watts - #96
  • Marcus Epps - #39
  • Oli Udoh - #74
  • Kris Boyd - #38
  • Dillon Mitchell - #17
  • Olabisi Johnson - #81
  • Austin Cutting - #58
