Broncos sent their WR coach to Jha’Quan Jackson’s pro day

The Denver Broncos sent wide receivers coach Keary Colbert to Tulane’s pro day last month which featured wide receiver Jha’Quan Jackson, according to Jim Nagy.

Jackson (5-9, 188 pounds) ran a 40-yard dash in 4.42 seconds at and bench-pressed 225 pounds 12 times at the NFL combine earlier this offseason.

Jackson, 23, spent five years with the Green Wave, hauling in 109 receptions for 1,743 yards and 17 touchdowns in 56 games. He also returned 59 punts for 677 yards and one touchdown and returned 35 kickoffs for 772 yards.

Jackson is projected to be a late-round pick in the NFL draft later this month. If he’s picked by the Broncos (or signed as an undrafted free agent), Jackson would likely compete for the backup slot receiver position while also competing for reps as a returner. Marvin Mims is expected to play in the slot and handle return duties this season.

Denver is also taking a close look at Jackson’s teammate, quarterback Michael Pratt. The 2024 NFL draft will be held in Detroit from April 25-27.
