The Denver Broncos had a pre-draft visit with Coastal Carolina running back to Shermari Jones, according to 9news’ Mike Klis.
Jones was a freshman at Independent Community College in 2018, where he dashed 352 yards and hit the ground four times. Jones was featured on the Netflix series Last Chance U.
Jones would later move to Coastal Carolina. As a senior, Jones enjoyed a breakout season; he dashed 1,040 yards and made 13 touches in 11 games. He was selected to the First Team of the Sun Belt in 2021.
Jones will likely be a late Day 3 pick. Tony Pauline of Pro Football Network has Jones at 745th on his big board.

The Broncos are still in discussions with Melvin Gordon
The Broncos still don’t have a clear number two running back behind Javonte Williams. Draft might be the best option, but the team hasn’t ruled out bringing in veteran Melvin Gordon.
On March 14, Benjamin Allbright of KOA Colorado reported that a reunion between Gordon the Broncos was unlikely.
However, Gordon is still a freelance agent. During the annual League meeting, Broncos general manager George Paton said that discussions with Gordon were ongoing, according to The Denver Post’s Ryan O’Halloran.
Paton said the Broncos didn’t close its doors to freelance agents Kareem Jackson (safe) and Melvin Gordon (run back). “Talked to both of their agents,” said Paton. “It is happening. Really good players. ”
With many freelance agents turning their backs on the board, a reunion might be the best option for both Gordon and the Broncos.
Likely Broncos Meet TE Isaiah
In addition to Jones, the Broncos also met another potential customer in Coastal Carolina. According to Sports Illustrated’s Ryan Roberts, they had a Zoom call with the tight ending likely Isaiah, according to Sports Illustrated’s Ryan Roberts.
Possibly one of the tightest finishes in this draft class. Last season, he had a PFF score of 93.3, second among all FBS tight finishes.
NFL.com’s Lance Zierlien compared the High Probability to Delaine Walker’s three Pro Bowl finishes.
The prospect ends up tight with an invisible profile and location characteristics that make him predictable to the next level. Likely a winner in high school and played a key role in Coastal Carolina’s ascent over the past two seasons. He lacks an archetypal tight closing frame and is an inconsistent stopper, but he runs well and fills his career stat sheet with big plays. It may take a year or two for him to find his footing against stronger, faster coverage, but he has the tools to spot against NFL coverage as a tight finish. “F”.
After losing Noah Fant to a trade with Russell Wilson, it makes sense to target a tight finish on draft night. Albert Okwuegbunam jumped at the chance to take the team’s No. 1 spot, but the Broncos could use some depth behind Okwuegbunam.
Could be a great addition. Currently, he is predicted to be a third-round pick. He is currently 108th on the PFF grand board.
