2020 NFL Draft Scouting Report
Tee Higgins, WR, Clemson Tigers

Positives
Explosive game-changing receiver with terrific size and speed. Fluidly releases off the line of scrimmage, quickly gets to top speed, and displays himself as a solid vertical threat. Possesses terrific hand-eye coordination and focus, extends his hands and plucks the ball from midair. Uses his frame to shield away defenders, nicely adjusts to the errant throw and wins out in battles.

Turns upfield, keeps the play in bounds, and works to pick up positive yardage after the catch. High points the ball over defenders and makes the difficult reception with opponents draped on him. Tracks the ball in the air, correctly times his receptions and physically outmuscles opponents to come away with the catch. Gives effort as a downfield blocker.

Negatives
Lacks true deep speed and a second gear. Has a limited route tree.

Analysis
Higgins made an immediate impact at Clemson as a sophomore, and he elevated his game last season as both a game-controlling receiver and home-run-hitting threat. Though he lacks the true speed for a vertical offense, Higgins is fast enough to get downfield to make the reception and big enough to be used on underneath routes. Higgins must improve and expand his route running, but he comes with a large upside.
