Strengths

Tremendous size and strength. Huge hands. Very athletic with long arms and legs. Exceptional at high-pointing the ball. Excellent focus when playing above the rim. Catches passes away from his body. Extremely difficult to stop on back-shoulder balls. Plus long speed when he gets going. Smooth for his size. Sells his routes on the perimeter. Creates separation out of breaks. Size allows him to naturally shield off cornerbacks at the catch point. Provides a great target on intermediate routes. Comfortably catches over-the-shoulder passes. Very good overall balance and body control. Great getting his feet down on the boundary. Extends for passes off his frame. Has the quickness to beat press coverage. Glides with the ball in his hands in space. Physical runner that will initiate contact. Dangerous as a big slot.

 

Weaknesses

Takes time to get into top gear. Benefitted from cushion coverage on a loaded offense. Routes may need to be more crisp against NFL cornerbacks. Not a standout blocker in college.

Conclusion

Overall, Higgins is an elite downfield and red zone threat with the size, athleticism, and ball skills to be an impact receiver at the next level. Even with much of the league devaluing bigger wideouts, I think Higgins is worth a Day 1 selection in a deep, talented draft class.
