The Jets added to their wide receiver room after selecting Garrett Wilson with the 10th pick in the 2022 NFL draft, signing Kent State’s Keshunn Abram as an undrafted free agent.
Abram was one of Kent State’s top wideouts in 2021 and helped the Golden Flashes to a 6-2 record in conference play. It won’t be easy for him to earn a spot on New York’s 53-man roster given its current personnel at wide receiver, but Abram has a chance to open eyes during the spring and summer with an intriguing skill set.

Abram established himself as a top option in Kent State’s passing attack last season after catching just two passes for 39 yards and a touchdown. Abram finished second on the Golden Flashes in receiving yards with 699 to go along with 47 receptions and three scores.

One of Abram’s best performances of 2021 came when Kent State traveled to Iowa to take on a ranked Hawkeyes team. He was on the receiving end of six passes for 138 yards and Kent State’s lone touchdown in a 30-7 loss.
Taking care of business on and off the field
Abram was a member of the National Honor Society at DeSoto Central High School in Mississippi. He was also part of the Ambassador’s Club and was nominated for the FCA Coach Bob Patterson Award. Abram remained a star in the classroom during his junior college career, earning a MACJC All-Academic Team selection and a NJCAA All-Academic second-team nod.
