    Quarterback Colin Kaepernick will wear No. 7 when he suits up for the San Francisco 49ers.

    The future of the San Francisco 49ers may not be in the building but he at least has a number.

    Quarterback Colin Kaepernick has chosen the number he will go by once the NFL lifts its lockout and players are allowed to join their teams.

    The former Nevada Wolfpack quarterback has chosen the No. 7.

    “What I did in college will not help me be great here,” Kaepernick wrote in a tweet on May 2. “It is time to start from scratch!”

    Kaepernick wore No. 10 when playing for Nevada. If the Turlock-native is able to fulfill head coach Jim Harbaugh's ambition for him, No. 7 could become a popular jersey for fans to wear.

    Hell if Alex Smith returns to San Francisco, Kaepernick's jersey may still be one of the hotter items with disgruntled fans looking for a release.

    The 49ers also announced that third-round pick Chris Culliver will wear No. 29; fourth-round pick Kendall Hunter will wear No. 32; fifth-round pick Daniel Kilgore will wear No. 67; sixth-round pick Ronald Johnson will wear No. 88; sixth-round pick Colin Jones will wear No. 43; seventh-round pick Bruce Miller will wear No. 49; seventh-round pick Michael Person will wear No. 78 and seventh-round pick Curtis Holcomb will wear No. 41.

    The jerseys are available for sale now with customization.
