Taking a look at the New York Giants rookie jersey numbers:

The New York Giants had 10 overall selections in the 2020 NFL draft, and while most suspected they would package some of their seventh-round picks together to move up, they stood pat and used every single one of them.

The Giants released their rookie jersey numbers on Thursday, as a first-round pick, Andrew Thomas, selected number 78. Most of the players selected numbers that didn’t match up with their college choices, likely because they were already taken. Even Thomas, who was #71 with Georgia, was unable to secure his number with the Giants, as he decided on 78.
