Jets Undrafted Free Agent Rumors Incoming

Recommended Posts

Joe Douglas

With the Jets draft wrapped up and graded, it’s time now of course to try to keep up with the madness of undrafted free agent signings.  We’ll see names roll in from various outlets.  Most will be real, some will be fake and other may be real but eventually fall through.  Here’s our best effort and putting them all in one spot to keep  you updated.

RB Zonovan Knight, NC State: Knight was a player we expected to see drafted on day 3 but that didn’t happen.  A shifty back with kick return ability who can also catch it out of the backfield, Knight should get a decent look for Gang Green.

WR Irvin Charles, Penn State: When we saw this name we thought we’d dropped the ball.  Having watched tons of Penn State football this draft season, this name didn’t sound familiar at all.  Turns out there’s a reason for that.  Per sports-reference, Charles didn’t catch a single pass for Penn State from 2015-2017 and was solely a special teams player.  The 6′ 4” New Jersey product was a part of Penn State’s 2015 recruiting class before being dismissed in 2017 and playing with Indiana University of Pennsylvania.  In 2021, Charles picked up 39 receptions for 792 yards and 12 touchdowns for IUP.

LB D.Q. Thomas, Middle Tennessee State: Thomas played five seasons at MTSU and put up a career high 88 tackles in the middle of their defense last season.  We’d expect more linebackers to be brought in before all is said and done but this is one spot where a player like Thomas has to like his chances given the Jets lack of depth.

CB Alan George, Vanderbilt: A fifth-year senior, the 6′ 1” George appeared in 45 collegiate contests (26 starts) and amassed 142 tackles, 19 passes defended and 2 interceptions.

DT Savion Williams, Florida A&M: Here’s how Emory Hunt of CBS sports describes Williams in his annual draft guide; “Showed he can rush over any OL: Guard, Center & Tackle and play all techniques up front. He’s a very versatile, scheme diverse player who gives you flexibility on defense.

The Jets can use a bit more help along the interior defensive line, so if they view Williams in that light, he may have a shot.

RB DeAndre Torrey, North Texas: There’s not much out there on Torrey having played for North Texas, but from what little we found, he looks to be an explosive player who hits top speed in a hurry.  He fits the physical profile the Jets are looking for as a smaller, quicker back with a thick lower half.

S Tony Adams, Illinois: Adams played cornerback early on in his career but moved to safety for Illinois and will be listed as one or the other depending on which outlet you use.  He certainly has cornerback speed (4.37) but spent a good portion of his time at safety for Illinois.  We’ll see in time how the Jets view Adams.

Disappointed to see a lot of guys who could have filled needs from bigger schools sign elsewhere but after the draft they just had I'm not gonna' worry about it all that much.
