Tee Higgins declares for NFL Draft

2020 NFL Draft Prospect Profile Tee Higgins Clemson

Higgins said Wednesday he was foregoing his senior season and entering the 2020 draft.

He is considered a consensus first-rounder and is expected to be taken late on the first night of the draft. He announced his intentions via social media Wednesday. Because of Clemson I now have the opportunity to do that.

The 6-foot-4, 215-pound junior, a Tennessee native, is widely projected to be a first-round pick in April's draft.


Higgins finds himself toward the front of the line of a deep receiver class that also features Oklahoma's CeeDee Lamb, Alabama's Jerry Jeudy and others. He also scored on a touchdown run, finding the end zone from 36 yards out on a reverse during the national title game. A versatile talent who can fill up the box score, Delpit finished his three seasons with 199 tackles, 17.5 sacks, seven interceptions, 24 passes defended and two fumble recoveries. He did a lot of that in the last two seasons, catching 118 passes for the Tigers for over 2,000 yards and scoring 25 touchdowns. It was his first rushing attempt of the season.

During his three-year college career with the Tigers, Higgins flashed his potential as a No. 1 receiver. He finishes his career at Clemson with 27 career TD catches. The deadline for underclassmen to declare for the 2020 draft is January 20.
