Tampa Bay Buccaneers 2015 draft picks get their jersey numbers

Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers have announced the new jersey numbers for their 2015 NFL draft class. Jameis Winston had earlier been announced to be wearing #3, annoying all of the people who had purchased custom-made Winston #5 jerseys -- but pleasing everyone who didn't want to be reminded of Josh Freeman every time Winston took a snap.

No real notable jersey assignments among the other Bucs players. Kevin Kenny Bell gets Michael Clayton's old number, while Donovan Smith gets to wear Jeremy Zuttah's, but that's about it in terms of significant numbers. At least as far as I can see.

QB Jameis Winston: #3

T Donovan Smith: #76

G Ali Marpet: #74

LB Kwon Alexander: #58

WR Kevin Bell: #80

WR Kaelin Clay: #14

FB Joseph Iosepha: #33

This necessitated two other jersey number changes, for players no one really cares about. Tight end Taylor Sloat will switch from #80 to #49, while defensive end George Uko will switch from #58 to #95.
