SALT LAKE CITY – Former University of Utah All-American linebacker Devin Lloyd is wearing No. 22 at the NFL Draft Combine in honor of his teammates.

At the NFL Draft Combine, players are able to pick a number and Devin Lloyd decided to go with No. 22 in honor of Ty Jordan and Aaron Lowe.

According to Lloyd’s Combine press conference, he confirmed having interviews with the Las Vegas Raiders, New York Giants, New York Jets, Pittsburgh Steelers, New England Patriots, among others.

Jordan was killed on Christmas night in 2020 in Denton, Texas, where he suffered an accidental gunshot wound. Lowe was best friends with Jordan as they both attended the same high school in Mesquite, Texas. The Utah defensive back was one of the main reasons that Jordan decided to attend the university after de-committing from Texas.

During this past offseason, Lowe switched his number from 2 to 22 to honor Jordan. He was also the first recipient of the Ty Jordan Memorial Scholarship.

Lowe was tragically shot and killed at a house party in Sugarhouse early in the morning of Sunday, September 26.
