Second Round Pick: Tee Higgins, WR, Clemson

Recommended Posts

Not a fan of the Higgins pick

Not mad, just suboptimal IMO

I do understand the need with AJ probably gone after this year 

I just think the need to protect New Guy is bigger, higher priority

Higgins is a monster in his own right. I also won the damn picks contest at go-bengals with that pick...

This is stuck on my mind - look at the speed and power:

WR wasn't my first choice. I get it though, and I won't complain about any immediate effort to boost Burrow.

AJ insurance, we're still assuming AJ can play next season, and won't get hurt again.  Ross hasn't worked out, so, I get it.  I like Higgins quite a bit, it's fine, he's fun to watch and is probably the most developed WR (despite being only 21) left, that can at least contribute immediately hopefully.  whateva.

Hopefully LB in the 3rd.

I do like that he and Burrow have been working together maybe Burrow said get this guy, who knows but I’m happy with it

To answer my own question in the pre pick thread, I guess the Bengals didn’t drop Higgins stock. And I have zero concerns.

Also answered one of my earlier draft questions in whether or not the coaches were full of it when they said they liked the line as is.

I’m starting to think they like this O-Line as well, hoping a Guard is still there or trade for Gabe Jackson. I don’t see them addressing the o-line much.

I never had a problem with WR.  
 

What’s his 40 time look like?   Huge catch radius.

So you got a young accurate QB with WRs with big catch radius.   Hopefully Higgins has got some deep ability in case Ross and AJ get hurt.

Nobody really knows, what his timed speed is because he didn't workout at the combine

Estimated to be in the high 4.5s

That back shoulder throw that Burrow likes to toss? Higgins is PERFECT for that. His specialty.
