Tyler Linderbaum is off to the NFL after becoming a first-round pick by the Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens ultimately tabbed Linderbaum with the No. 25 pick in this year’s draft.

Now, the All-American and award-winning center from Iowa will try to do his part in helping to protect QB Lamar Jackson – and paving the way for former Ohio State RB J.K. Dobbins, among others. Linderbaum also received his jersey number on Tuesday.

Baltimore’s official Twitter account revealed the jersey numbers for every member of the rookie class with Linderbaum receiving No. 64 to begin his NFL career. Linderbaum sported No. 65 during his career with the Hawkeyes.

Linderbaum was a 2-time first-team All-B1G selection in back-to-back seasons to finish his career at Iowa. He was also a unanimous All-American, the B1G’s Offensive Lineman of the Year and the Rimington Trophy winner during the 2021 season.

Linderbaum also begins his NFL career as the highest-drafted offensive lineman out of Iowa since Tristan Wirfs in 2020.
