7. Zonovan Knight, RB, NY Jets

The Jets' most notable undrafted signing, Zonovan Knight showed some burst on Saturday night and finished as the team's most productive running back, sans Breece Hall (more on him later).

Knight strung together a few impressive runs on the second-team offense's scoring drive including a 10-yard run that set up an eventual Flacco touchdown pass. The rookie running back has made a strong first impression.

6. Will Parks, S, NY Jets

One player in the Jets' secondary who should not be overlooked is veteran safety Will Parks. Parks made a great read on an errant Mike White throw on the final play of scrimmage, capping off his second consecutive practice with an interception.

Parks played well in limited action for the Jets last season and is hardly an unproven commodity with 76 career games played. Don't be surprised if he pushes for one of the final roster spots.

5. Del'Shawn Phillips, LB, NY Jets

The Jets rotated their linebacker corps a bit on Saturday, and one player who received some looks with the starters was Del'Shawn Phillips. He made the most of his opportunities too, intercepting Zach Wilson on the second-year QB's final drive of the scrimmage.

Phillips appeared in all 17 games for the Jets last season and has clearly earned the trust of the coaching staff. More performances like this one will help him solidify a roster spot.
