Tee Higgins, a junior wide receiver at Clemson, looks like his senior year will not be needed.  Higgins is coming off a great 2019 season and is expected to be one of the top 5 receivers taken.  The Clemson standout was n’t even going to play football in high school, turns out it was a pretty good decision.  Let us take a look at his college career, strengths, weaknesses, and possible fits. 

College Career:  Tee Higgins followed up a solid sophomore season, with an even better junior year.  The wideout hauled in 59 receptions for 1,167 yards, and 13 touchdowns. Higgins has been a staple at Clemson over the last 3 seasons, totaling 135 receptions for 2,448 yards and 28 touchdowns receiving. The wideout has not had a season where he averaged less than 15.9 yards per reception.  Higgins is a lengthy receiver and should fit well with NFL organizations.

Strengths:  Higgins reminds me a little of Calvin Johnson, as both are lengthy wide outs and Higgins can go up and get a fifty fifty ball like Johnson.  He was essential for Clemson especially the last 2 seasons, as his ability to haul in passes led to success for the Tigers. His ability to haul in passes, showed his great hands consistently. 

Weaknesses:  Higgins ran the 40-yard dash at the combine and was in the middle of the pack.  The wideout registered a 4.53 in the 40-yard dash. Could be a solid receiver as he develops at the next level, but will need to work on excelling through contact. 

Possible Fits:  Higgins is not the best wide receiver in the draft, but should still be taken in the first round.  Higgins will more than likely see his name called towards the end of the 1st round, as there are a few teams bunch together towards the end of round 1 who need a receiver. 

The Green Bay Packers could use a receiver, as the Packers have Davante Adams, but after that, Allen Lazard was 2nd in receptions with 35.  The Packers do like to toss the ball to their running backs, but Higgins could help make Green Bay more dynamic, and who better to grow under than Aaron Rodgers? Seems like a good fit. The San Francisco 49ers would also be an option, as the 49ers have Deebo Samuel at wideout.  Emmanuel Sanders moved on from San Francisco, so the 49ers could use a receiver in the draft and Higgins should be available towards the end of round 1. Both teams could use a receiver and Higgins is a tall lengthy wide out that could help an organization.
