NFL Draft: Colts host sleeper CB from CFL for top-30 visit

The Indianapolis Colts are bringing in a sleeper at the cornerback position for a top-30 visit ahead of the 2024 NFL Draft.

With just over a week to go until the draft officially arrives, the Colts are among the several teams hosting Toronto Argonauts cornerback Qwan’tez Stiggers for a top-30 visit, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

Adding depth to the cornerback position is a major need for the Colts during the draft so it’s not a surprise general manager Chris Ballard is turning over every rock to find potential gems.

Colts host sleeper CB from CFL for NFL draft visit

Stiggers didn’t go to the NFL Scouting Combine, but he did have a pro day where teams watched him work out. As the CFL’s most outstanding rookie in 2023, he has the profile of a sleeper prospect on Day 3 of the draft.

At 5-foot-11 and 204 pounds, Stiggers has 30.5-inch arms. He ran a 4.45 in the 40-yard dash while adding a 36-inch vertical jump and a 10-foot-8-inch broad jump. The arm length might be a concern for the Colts as that’s an area they typically are strict when it comes to certain positions.

The Colts would likely be using a late Day 3 pick to grab Stiggers if they are so inclined. He’s a project with little experience so it’s unlikely the Colts would get much playing time out of him right away.

With the Argonauts in 2023, Stiggers played in 16 games (15 starts), recording 12 passes defensed and five interceptions.
