*** Official UDFA Thread *** Post all Jets UDFA Signings & Others of Interest

Recommended Posts

DATE OF BIRTH: 12/08/1998 AGE: 23.4
OVERALL RATING:    71.3 / 100

Average quickness and power and his bull rush will be stonewalled. Comes off the snap high, losing leverage.
Combines strength and footwork to fill holes inside, as well. Recovers from cut blocks or falling on his way to make a tackle.
Tall, solid frame with adequate length and has done a nice job losing the bad weight and firming his body.
Excellent hustle-and-chase tackler. Good closing speed with change of direction to corral mobile quarterbacks.
Rarely goes to the ground, showing good balance from his high school wrestling days.
Misses tackles, even when he gets his hands on the ballcarrier. Needs to improve hand placement and technique.
Lacks the speed to turn the corner consistently and is too often washed out by stronghanded blockers.
Average athletically with average straight line speed and tight hips. Not a natural bender. Lacks secondary pass-rush moves.
Only average lower-body strength and struggles to anchor at the point of attack. Bit of a defensive end/defensive tackle "tweener" who struggles in traffic with multiple blockers, not always using his limbs effectively to disengage.
Might be limited to one-gap systems. Agility isn't a question but misses tackles when he doesn't square and break down.

nice....looks like a Human Pinball...guy takes a beating and is bouncing off everyone - I especially like the play where he was running down sideline with his Guard and they went out of bound and he got tossed into a tumble.

Wow!! Watching this kid reminds me of Lance Mehl. Can’t ever remember Mehl missing a tackle. Have to bring this kid in just off this Nebraska game alone

So the guy I’ve been following Long Island’s Jack Coen who played for ND and Wisconsin wasn’t drafted but signed with Indy a smart move. They have 3 Qbs on roster, Matt Ryan, Ehlinger and James Morgan. They didn’t draft a Qb today and so far he’s the only UFA Qb they signed. He was a consistent productive Qb with two major programs. He has a chance to make their team at least to make PS.

The Rattlers!  That might be our first Florida A&M guy, even if it is participation only. Cool.

Roger Finnie.  Florida A&M.  Played 38 games for us from 1969 - 72.

Signings so far (not including minicamp tryouts/invites):


Zonovan Knight, RB, NC State

Nicknamed "Bam," Zonovan Knight was NC State's leading rusher in each of the last three seasons. Knight turned 21-years-old just a couple of weeks before the draft and prides himself on his explosiveness and agility.

Knight also has ample experience as a kick returner and was named first-team All-ACC in 2021 as a return man. At 5-foot-10, 209 pounds, Knight is a work in progress when it comes to his ball security, blocking, and receiving skills, but he has a chance to stick as a rotational back.

His age and ability to cut on a dime make this a high-upside addition.

Irvin Charles, WR, Indiana (PA)

The Jets add a big-bodied wide receiver to their roster in the form of former Penn State wideout Irvin Charles. At 6-foot-4, 228 pounds, Charles is a former four-star recruit who was dismissed from the program in 2017.

Charles is a local New Jersey product who checks every box from a size/athleticism standpoint. He'll look to make some noise in a suddenly crowded wide receiver depth chart.

DQ Thomas, LB, Middle Tennessee State

At 6-foot-1, 226 pounds, DQ Thomas fits the profile that the Jets look for in their linebackers. He's undersized, athletic, and was a team captain as a senior as well.

Thomas finished his college career as MTSU's all-time leader in tackles for loss and finished third in career sacks. He's a rangy, versatile linebacker who will look to provide depth at a position of need.

Savion Williams, DT, Florida A&M

A former four-star JUCO transfer at Tennessee, Savion Williams transferred to Florida A&M for his final season and became one of the best HBCU players in the country.

At 6-foot-3, 281 pounds, Williams is a bit of a tweener defensive tackle/end prospect who could help fill a similar role to John Franklin-Myers and Solomon Thomas.

Allan George, CB, Vanderbilt

The Jets add some cornerback depth in the form of the 5-foot-11, 191-pound Allan George. An experienced cornerback, George started 26 of 45 games at Vanderbilt and has been a staple of the team's defense for the better part of the last five years.

He finished his college career with 142 tackles, 19 passes defensed, 11 tackles for loss, two interceptions, and a forced fumble, and will look to compete for a roster spot this summer.

C.J. Brewer, DT, Coastal Carolina

The Jets sign another defensive tackle here in Coastal Carolina's C.J. Brewer. A four-year starter, Brewer stands at 6-foot-1, 288 pounds, and was named first-team All-Sun Belt in 2021.

Brewer is another team captain with ample collegiate experience who should compete for a roster spot in a crowded defensive line rotation this summer.

Keshunn Abram, WR, Kent State

A former JUCO transfer, Keshunn Abram spent one year as a starter at Kent State where he finished with 47 catches for 699 yards and three touchdowns.

At 6-foot-1, 194 pounds, Abram ran a 4.53 40-yard dash at his pro day and will look to carry over the momentum from a strong 2021 into training camp with the Jets.

DeAndre Torrey, RB, North Texas

The Jets sign their second undrafted running back in the 5-foot-7, 201-pound DeAndre Torrey. Torrey put together a monster senior season at North Texas finishing with 1,215 yards and 13 touchdowns in 12 games.

The Mississippi native is small in stature but built like a tank and is reminiscent of Michael Carter in some ways. He'll compete for a roster spot this summer alongside fellow undrafted running back Zonovan Knight.

Tony Adams, S, Illinois

The Jets add some much-needed safety depth in Illinois' Tony Adams. Adams started part of five years at Illinois and was initially recruited as a cornerback before making the switch to safety.

At 5-foot-11, 203 pounds, Adams ran an impressive 4.46 40-yard dash at his pro day and his versatility gives him a chance to stick in training camp. More secondary depth is never a bad thing.
