Tee Higgins knows Cincinnati Bengals fans should obviously be excited about the upcoming NFL Draft. Slotted with the No. 1 overall pick, the Bengals will likely be picking Heisman winner Joe Burrow — one of the most exciting quarterback prospects in recent years.
And while they have some promising weapons on the offense such as Joe Mixon, John Ross and Tyler Boyd, a team can never have enough offensive weapons. Especially when you’re likely going to throw a rookie quarterback straight into the fire.
With A.J. Green’s future in Cincinnati uncertain, the Bengals should look to add another top receiver prospect to their mix. Clemson wideout Tee Higgins is currently projected by CBS Sports as the fourth-best receiver prospect in the 2020 class, giving him a late first-round, early second-round grade.
If Tee Higgins does end up on Cincinnati’s lap with pick No. 33, the team should no doubt pull the trigger. Assuming that the Bengals let longtime star A.J. Green go, there will be a serious lack of receiver production from the other pass-catchers not named Tyler Boyd.
