After a successful season in 2019 for the Clemson Tigers, wide receiver Tee Higgins has decided to declare for the 2020 NFL Draft.
The electrifying playmaking receiver has elected to forgo his senior season and enter the 2020 NFL Draft as one of the best receivers in the class. Tee Higgins has decided he is ready for the next step of his career and will take his talents to the next level.
Tee Higgins has decided to enter his name into the 2020 NFL Draft as a junior and did so on his Twitter account just a few minutes ago. It wasn’t unexpected as he was thought to be projected as a high first round pick.
Higgins broke out as a sophomore in Clemson’s national title winning campaign in 2018 after he produced 59 receptions for 936 yards and 12 touchdowns. He somehow increased his production with the likely 2021 first overall selection, Trevor Lawrence, at the helm for a full season by posting 59 receptions for 1,167 yards and 13 touchdowns. He had a ridiculous 19.8 yards per reception as a junior.
He’s a very explosive athlete at a listed 6’4 215 and can blow the top off of any defense with his speed. Makes every catch look simple, even the difficult ones. NFL teams will love his ball skills and lateral quickness for a guy his size. Catch radius is simply massive.
He should likely be the first receiver off the board in late April if all goes well during the draft process. Higgins is tied for first overall in career touchdown receptions in program history with DeAndre Hopkins and Sammy Watkins. Can he join the recent trend of excellent former Clemson receivers making a name for themselves in the league?
