The Miami Dolphins released jersey numbers for their 2022 rookie class, as per the team’s official Twitter account:

They are as follows:
Round 3: Channing Tindall, LB, #51
Round 4: Erik Ezukanma, WR, #87
Round 7: Skylar Thompson, QB, #19 and Cameron Goode, OLB, #53
Some notable players who’ve worn these numbers in the past for Miami include Jakeem Grant and Scott Mitchell (#19), Mike Pouncey and Kamu Grugier-Hill (#51), Bob Matheson and Larry Izzo (#53), and finally Isaiah Ford, who wore #87 for the Dolphins just last year.
Here’s to hoping that these players enjoy the same success as a few of their predecessors who’ve donned the same number for the Miami Dolphins.
Oh, and just on a personal level, it’s nice to see a WR pick a jersey number in the 80s, as opposed to the 10s. You can try and change the old ways, but I won’t let you. So, from me personally, thank you Mr. Ezukanma!
