Jersey Numbers for Most of 2020 Draft Class; Still Waiting on CeeDee Lamb

Most of Dallas' 2020 draft class have decided on their new jersey numbers with the Cowboys. But the one we're most curious about, 1st-Round pick , is apparently still under discussion.

Here are the agreed-upon rookie jersey numbers according to The Athletic's Jon Machota:

Not included there is 7th-Round QB . He wore #6 at JMU, which is already taken by Cowboys' .

It's noteworthy that was given the #31 that was previously worn by . The Cowboys would certainly love for Diggs to quickly emerge into at least the talent that Jones was.

But perhaps the biggest news here is that we're still waiting on a decision regarding CeeDee Lamb.

The tradition around the #88 and Cowboys receivers is well known. After made the number iconic during his legendary run in Dallas, came along in the 90s and made it doubly special for the franchise.

Since Irvin, the Cowboys have given the number to rookie receivers with high expectations. It didn't turn out so great for Antonio Bryant in 2002, but certainly upheld the legacy with his Dallas career.

Now CeeDee Lamb is the next 1st-Round talent to enter the organization, and apparently wants to continue the tradition. We'll see if Jerry gets his way or if Lamb gets a chance to start a new legacy behind a new number.
