Per reports, defensive end Zach Thompson has been signed by the New York Jets.

After four years as a Demon Deacon, Zach Thompson will be a Jet for at least the immediate future as he was picked up shortly after the NFL Draft concluded Saturday evening.

Thompson had a solid Pro Day in Winston-Salem and drew the attention of multiple NFL scouts.

Per NFLDraftScout:

Height: 6'4"
Weight: 271
40 Yrd Dash: 4.78
20 Yrd Dash: 2.74

225 Lb. Bench Reps: 21
Vertical Jump: 30 1/2

Thompson appeared in 43 games as a Demon Deacon and recorded 151 tackles, 22 for a loss, 12 sacks, forced two fumbles, recovered another, deflected four passes and had two interceptions. In his senior season, Thompson started on the outside of a 3-4 alongside Nikita Whitlock (signed by the Bengals today as a fullback) and Kris Redding. Last season alone Thompson recorded 40 tackles and 5.5 sacks. Good luck Zach and we are excited to cover your professional career!
