The Chicago Bears have announced the uniform numbers for their 2015 draft class. Check out who gets what, and we'll check some of the numbers history in Chicago.

Anyone surprised the Bears already issued Lance Briggs' #55?

It was announced last week that Chicago Bears' number one draft pick, Kevin White, who wore #11 at West Virginia, would be issued #13 for the 2015 season. Josh Bellamy currently wears #11, and since his roster spot if far from a lock, there's a chance White will want to go to his collegiate number. White himself has even expressed a desire to snag #11 this season, so hold off on the jersey purchase. The most well known #13 in Bears history was wide out Johnny Knox.

Second round draft pick Eddie Goldman of Florida State, was issued #76. Steve "Mongo" McMichael famously wore #76 during Chicago's heyday in the 80s.

Third round center Hroniss Grasu, formerly of the Oregon Ducks, was issued #55, which is a number that has adorned a few memorable Bears. Just last season it was found on Lance Briggs, but before him it was worn by SBXX OLB Otis Wilson. And before Wilson, the double nickel was on the legendary Doug Buffone.

Jeremy Langford, 4th round running back from Michigan State, was given #36, which let's face it, is a terrible running back number. Ahmad Dixon was the last Bear to wear the number and if you go back a couple more years, it was Josh Bullocks' number.

Safety 5th round draft pick Adrian Amos wore number 4 at Penn State, but he'll wear #38 in Chicago. The last solid defensive back to wear that number for the Bears was Danieal Manning, who actually had a similar CB/S skill set as does Amos. Hopefully there will be no DMS in Amos' future.

TCU offensive tackle, Tayo Fabuluje, their 6th round pick, was issued #73. T-Fab Nation anyone?
