Devon Witherspoon, Jaxon Smith-Njigba Unveil Jersey Numbers

Seattle's first-round draft picks revealed their new jersey numbers at the Virginia Mason Athletic Center.


A little over 12 hours removed from the conclusion of the first round of the 2023 NFL Draft, Seattle's two picks, cornerback Devon Witherspoon and wide receiver Jaxon Smith-Njigba, had already arrived at the team's Renton-based facility, the Virginia Mason Athletic Center.

Flanked by head coach Pete Carroll and general manager John Schneider in their introductory press conference, the pair unveiled a first glimpse at the jerseys they'll wear on gamedays.

Witherspoon, whose number 31 at Illinois is already worn by running back DeeJay Dallas, will sport 21, the number he wore at Pine Forest High School in Pensacola, Florida.

Smith-Njigba keeps his familiar number 11, which was recently vacated by wide receiver Marquise Goodwin after he was signed by the Cleveland Browns in free agency. It's a number Smith-Njigba has worn his whole career, at both Rockwall High School in Rockwall, Texas and Ohio State University.

Both jerseys are available for preorder online.

Seahawks first round picks Devon Witherspoon and Jaxon Smith-Njigba met with local media at the Virginia Mason Athletic Center in Renton, Wash. on April 28, 2023.
