The Clemson standout is a lanky target at 6-foot-3, with room to get stronger. Higgins sports tremendous ball skills, can elevate to high-point the pigskin, and offers a big catch radius. The wideout could be a big red-zone target, compiling 27 TDs in three seasons at Clemson.
Higgins provides Burrow a big-play threat who can play on the outside or inside the formation.
With Green's future in Cincy in doubt, after he missed the entire 2019 campaign due to injury and was slapped with the franchise tag, the Higgins selection provides insurance with explosive upside. If Green leaves after this season, a pairing of Higgins and Boyd would still be a great duo for Burrow to grow with.
