Josh Allen gets jersey No. 17 with Bills

Bills first-round picks Josh Allen and Tremaine Edmunds will get to keep their collegiate jersey numbers.

Allen will become the first Bills quarterback since Matt Flynn to wear No. 17. Edmunds will wear 49.

Neither number has been famously worn in Bills history.

Former Bills 17s include Jeremy Butler, Jarrett Boykin, Justin Hunter, Denarius Moore, Greg Salas, Matt Flynn, Paul Hubbard, Justin Jenkins, Shayne Graham, Willie Totten, Matt Robinson, Gary Marangi, Mike Taliaferro, Warren Rabb and Bob Brodhead.

Former Bills 49s are Bryson Albright, Pierre Woods, Tim Massaquoi, John Hagy, Bruce King, Ulysses Norris, Larry Walton, Booth Lusteg and Floyd Hudlow.

National media grades the Bills' draft picks: A+ from CBS, question marks elsewhere
