New, comments

A number more frequently worn by Packers running backs is the choice of their newest defensive back.

We're less than 12 hours out from the Green Bay Packers' selection with pick number 30 in the 2015 NFL Draft, but the newest Packer officially has his jersey number picked out. Damarious Randall announced his number on Twitter Friday morning:

Get those jerseys on order, Packers fans! Here's what Randall's jersey will look like, thanks to the NFL Shop custom jersey tool:

The number 23 was worn most recently in the regular season by running back Johnathan Franklin, one of the Packers' fourth-round picks in the 2013 draft. Franklin's career was unfortunately cut short by a neck injury.

Other notable Packers to wear number 23 include running back Travis Williams (1967-70) and safeties Maurice Harvey (1981-83) and Tiger Greene (1986-90). Other players in the last decade wearing 23 were running backs Dimitri Nance (2010-11) and Noah Herron (2005-06).
