    A uniform number can be as important as the man who wears it. Michael Jordan just looked wrong in 45. Could you imagine Tony Gwynn in anything but 19? So when a young athlete picks his or her first jersey digits it's a big deal.

    The eight players selected by the Chargers in the 2016 NFL Draft have chosen the numbers they will be wearing in San Diego. They are (in numerical order, of course):

    P Drew Kaser - 6
    RB Derek Watt - 34
    LB Joshua Perry - 53
    LB Jatavis Brown - 57
    C Max Tuerk - 62
    OL Donavon Clark - 63
    TE Hunter Henry - 86
    DE Joey Bosa - 99

    So Chargers fans can now go about the business of buying their brand new jerseys. As the first rounder Bosa will likely see the most immediate sales. That's a tradition among many fans of NFL teams. The Bolts will be adding uniform numbers for their 20 undrafted free agents soon.
