Not at all, 11-19 is a norm for wr's nowadays

Yes, there are WR's with 11-19 but the 80's are the "norm" just like the 50's are the "norm" for LB's but some go to the 40's or 90's.

Irregardless, his only options currently in the 50's were 53 and 58 - (Van Note retired at 57) and he would probably be setting a bad omen to pick Lofton's 58.

11-19 for WR's is norm because so many teams have run out of 80s. We have Keyshawn Johnson to think for that. Him getting #19 with the Jets and then the NFL eventually in 2004 made it part of the numbering system. Not too many linebackers sporting numbers in the 40s. Usually 50's and 90's. When the NFL came out with the numbering systems the 90's weren't a part of it.

It was broken down like this. This numbering system was established in 1973.

1-19 - QB's, K's, P's

20-40 - RB, DB

50-59 - LB's

60-79 - OL, DL

80's - WR's

Since then there have been 2 major changes. The use of numbers in the 90s for DL and LB's and the use of numbers in the teens for WR's.
