The New Orleans Saints 2020 rookie draft class from the 2020 NFL Draft have their new jerseys lined up for the upcoming season.
The Saints’ first round pick, Michigan’s Cesar Ruiz, will continue to wear jersey #51 as he wore in college, worn by the likes of Saints greats Jonathan Vilma and Sam Mills.
#51 STILL IN FULL EFFECT !— King Ruiz (@_OverCees) April 27, 2020
Tight end Adam Trautman out of Dayton drops two numbers to his jersey, going from #84 in college to #82 with the New Orleans Saints, last worn by former tight end Coby Fleener.
Mississippi State quarterback Tommy Stevens gives up his #7 jersey he wore in Starkville - as that one is currently reserved for Taysom Hill - and instead opts to go back to his Penn State jersey number: #2. Former Saints player to wear #2? That would include 2016 7th round pick running back Daniel Lasco and Saints Hall of Famer quarterback Aaron Brooks.
After a slight public relations flub, second round pick Zack Baun out of Wisconsin will be wearing jersey #53, as his #56 jersey from college is taken by one Demario Davis. Fortunately for Baun, #53 is now available after A.J. Klein left for the Buffalo Bills in free agency.

2020 rookie class.
Already a jersey number change.
On Monday in a hype video NOLA released, Baun was #40, now #53.
Others remain the same.
