The Pittsburgh Steelers are showing some interest in one of the most unique stories this NFL Draft. Candian Football League Rookie of the Year Qwan’tez Stiggers is in the 2024 NFL Draft and, after a strong week at the Shrine Bowl, held his pro day two weeks ago. According to Steelers Depot’s Josh Carney, Steelers area scout Zack Crockett was one of the scouts there.

Stiggers has one of the best backstories in this draft, but he was impressive at the Shrine Bowl, too. He ran a 4.45 40-yard dash and has solid size to work with, though he is currently projected as an undrafted free agent as things stand. Regardless, Stiggers should be on the board for the Steelers with his profile.

He comes in with solid ball skills and explosiveness. The click and close to coming downhill was apparent in Frisco at the Shrine Bowl. Stiggers can work in man coverage and make plays on the ball. From what I remember in Frisco, Stiggers continued to make plays on the football, especially in seven-on-seven drills, but his man coverage in the one-on-one periods stood out.

For a team like the Steelers, who want to play that aggressive type of defense on one side at least with the length of a guy like Joey Porter Jr. brings to the table, Stiggers would make sense as a depth option and has proven to be a quality special teams player on top of that.
