49ers assign jersey numbers to 2016 rookie class

May 9, 2016 at 2:42 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers announced jersey numbers for the team's 2016 rookie class. The team completed their rookie minicamp over the weekend, which allowed the 49ers' new coaching staff to evaluate the rookies as a unit for the first time.

As Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee stated over the weekend, numbers for many of these players may be temporary and subject to change once the roster is reduced to 53 spots. However, they will be worn for the remainder of the team's offseason.

As noted by 49ers.com, the one player who's number is safe is first-round selection DeForest Buckner. He will remain number 99, so it is safe for fans to order his jersey.

First, it's important to note that San Francisco 49ers rookie defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw doesn't typically provide lengthy answers to questions. It's just not his style. However, he did have a longer-than-usual response on Thursday when asked to identify a teammate who has been most helpful during his transition from the college game to the pros. That player is sixth-year defensive lineman Arik Armstead, who has taken on a mentorship role with the first-year defender. "I've been leaning on Arik a lot," Kinlaw said.

Until then, Hyder, and those who remain, will be entrusted to hold down the fort. Another player looking to do the same thing is rookie Javon Kinlaw, who has displayed flashes of his potential while adjusting to life in the NFL. Hyder, now in his seventh season, was asked about his first-year teammate this week, his development, and his future. "He's a hungry player,"
