Rashard Higgins   #81 WR

Height: 6-1   Weight: 198   Age: 24

Born: 10/7/1994 Dallas , TX

College: Colorado State

Experience: 4th season

High School: Mesquite HS [TX]









Draft 2016

Pick No.172

Selected By: Cleveland Browns

Round: 5

Pick (Overall): 35 (172)

Pick Analysis: A bit overshadowed playing in Fort Collins, Higgins was simply one of the most productive players in college football the past two seasons. The school's all-time leader in receptions (239), receiving yards (3,649) and receiving touchdowns (31). He actually had his worst season in 2015 with a new offense and a new quarterback (75-1,062, 8 TD) but was still a first team All-Mountain West selection. His 2014 season was phenomenal, garnering consensus All-American and first team all-conference honors with 96 catches (10th in the FBS) for a nation-leading 1,750 yards and 17 touchdowns. The Biletnikoff Award finalist's 17 touchdowns averaged 35 yards each. The honorable mention all-Texas pick became an immediate starter for the Rams in 2013, leading the team with 68 catches for 837 yards and six touchdowns.
