These are really just a few random ideas for 7 beat jazz drum comping patterns with jazz time, similar to the 5 beats ones posted previously.
There are some eight note patterns played between the snare drum and the bass drum with the aim of applying them to uptempo playing. In the PDF there are some more comping ideas that use space and some triplet variations too.
I've been experimenting with using 7 beat figures, like figure 3 in the PDF, as comping pattern with Bossa Nova.
Hopefully you'll a few interesting ideas to inspire your own playing and rhythmic explorations.
