Green Bay Packers reveal jersey number for former Buckeye Josh Myers
Just a few days after being selected in the 2021 NFL Draft, former Ohio State center Josh Myers has received his jersey number from the Green Bay Packers.
Monday, the Packers revealed that Myers will be wearing No. 71 with the organization. That’s the same number Myers wore while he was at Ohio State. It’s the same number his father wore.
Myers also wore No. 50 for one game with the Buckeyes to honor his grandfather.

Myers, a 6-foot-5, 310-pound offensive lineman, was selected in the second round by Green bay with the No. 62 overall pick. At Ohio State, he was a two-time All-B1G selection, receiving first-team honors in 2020 and was a second-team selection in 2019.
Over the weekend, Myers was one of 10 Buckeyes to be selected in the NFL Draft.
