2024 NFL Scouting Combine: Steelers meet with LSU WR Brian Thomas Jr.

Wide receivers and quarterbacks addressed the media on Friday at the 2024 NFL Scouting Combine. One of the best guys in the wide receiver class of the 2024 NFL draft. His production was overshadowed by teammate Malik Nabers but he makes a strong case to be the fourth or fifth wide receiver off the board.

When Thomas talked to the media he noted that one of his formal meetings was with the Pittsburgh Steelers. Thomas is widely regarded as the best deep threat in the draft while not as polished and complete as the guys above him.

Scouting a first-round wide receiver is somewhat out of character for the Steelers who almost never draft a receiver this early. We can speculate all day about what this could mean from simply doing due diligence on players who might be on the board when they pick to preparing for a big trade of a guy like Diontae Johnson.
