Favorite Targets for the Chiefs at Pick #221 (7th Round)

Qwan'tez Stiggers - CB - CFL - 5'11" - 203 pounds

Consensus Draft Board Ranking - 239

Qwan'tez Stiggers has one of the more amazing stories in this draft class. Stiggers didn't get much college attention out of high school and ended up going to work full-time after his father passed away. He eventually ended up playing in a semi-pro 7-on-7 league in Atlanta and his play there earned him a tryout in the Canadian Football League last season. Not only did he make the team, he earned the CFL's Rookie of the Year award when he racked up 56 tackles and 5 interceptions. He's obviously raw, but he has real athleticism (9.31 RAS) and good natural ball skills. Stiggers did have a visit with the Chiefs, and I would love for them to give him a chance to continue his amazing story in the NFL.

Jalen Coker - WR - Holy Cross - 6'1" - 208 pounds

Consensus Draft Board Ranking - 245

I couldn't resist the urge to squeeze one more wide receiver onto this list (this is #5 if you're keeping tabs). Jalen Coker is another small school prospect who showed some dominant traits against lesser competition. He's solidly built and while he's not a burner, he's got explosive leaping ability and really strong hands. His vertical jump was 99th percentile for wide receivers and his 3.3% drop rate and 52.2% contested catch rate were both in the top half of this draft class.

Coker's route running is fine, but he lacks the natural quickness to create separation at the NFL level. However, his physical style looks tailor-made for special teams units and I think he could be a fun red zone weapon in some packages with his leaping ability and strong hands. In the seventh round, you could do a lot worse than a guy with Coker's highlights and physical traits.

So there you have it Chiefs fans. Those are my favorite prospects that I scouted this year and where I would love to see the Chiefs target them when the draft kicks off on Thursday.
