The 2022 NFL Draft is officially over and the NY Jets made a total of seven picks. They landed hopeful franchise cornerstones, important depth pieces, and players who they hope will have long futures with the organization.
But their work is far from over. The Jets may not have been on the clock since around 1 pm ET, but they've been working the phones and staying in contact with a number of players. Many of those players were not selected in this year's draft.
Every year, the NFL sees dozens of undrafted players not only make rosters, but make sizable impacts with their new teams. The Jets have an opportunity to find diamonds in the rough.
We will be keeping track of every undrafted signing the Jets make and providing a little background about the player. Make sure to keep checking back to stay up to date with every undrafted addition the Jets make.
What gems could general manager Joe Douglas possibly find? Let's take a look.
Former N.C. State RB Zonovan "Bam" Knight is signing with the #Jets, per source.
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.
The #Jets are signing IUP and former Penn State WR Irvin Charles, per source.
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 is a JET! They will love everything about this MAN! Congratulations my MAN! Let’s Go
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 has signed with the @nyjets!#FAMU | #Rattlers | #LeaveNoDoubt | #NFL pic.twitter.com/Y5v22cO0e7
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.
Excited for this next step! Thank you @nyjets for believing in me. This is only the beginning! Let’s get to work!! #TakeFlight pic.twitter.com/fmmFxCnRjl
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.
There we go!
CJ Brewer (@cjb52_) has landed with an NFL squad.
The former @CoastalFootball DT is signing with the #Jets as an UDFA.@wmbfnews #ChantsUp pic.twitter.com/ubq7Z5yLTZ
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 is heading to the Big ?!#BeTheAlpha | #TakeFlight pic.twitter.com/geeHNzAEYV
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.
?@TorreyBoy1 ➡️ @nyjets ?#GMG pic.twitter.com/moVF4FruuC
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.
*Torrey has NOT officially signed with the Jets, per source. He will be attending rookie minicamp, but he has not officially signed with the team*
Congrats to our guy Tony Adams @Iwill_suceed20 on being signed by the @nyjets
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.
J-E-T-S Jets Jets Jets! @fordDamion12 ?☠️ pic.twitter.com/DbFz4904sz
A former three-star recruit at North Carolina, D.J. Ford transferred to East Carolina after four years at Chapel Hill. He spent his final season at ECU where he finished with 32 tackles and 2.5 sacks in 11 games.
At 6-foot-3, 206 pounds, Ford ran a disappointing 40-yard dash of 4.82 and feels like a prime candidate to make the move to linebacker with the Jets.
?????? ?????? to the Big ?‼️ ✈️ @NCATFootball’s Ron Hunt has signed with the @nyjets!#BigSouthFB? x #BigSouthMade pic.twitter.com/dXULdiaRD1
Another HBCU alumni, Ron Hunt shined at the HBCU Combine this year after a successful career at North Carolina A&T. Hunt stands at 6-foot-1, 186 pounds, and reportedly ran a 4.34 40-yard dash in college.
The Greensboro native possesses an intriguing blend of size and speed and will look to carve out a role with the Jets this summer. This is the third reported wide receiver the Jets have signed post-draft along with Irvin Charles and Keshunn Abram.
