NFL Draft: The 29 players Tennessee Titans should consider in round one
By Will Lomas
21. Tee Higgins WR, Clemson
Higgins is the perfect test to see what the Tennessee Titans value in their second boundary wide receiver.
I think that Higgins is very comparable to the player that Corey Davis has become since being drafted by Tennessee. Both guys can win at the catch point and win after the catch, but neither are outrunning many people to the endzone or dazzling with their short-area quickness.
Likewise, both are very good blockers and are productive college players that feasted on bad competition and occasionally got the chance to go against better talent where they at least held their own.
Will the Titans have the offense to sustain a third receiver and would they be interested in drafting another version of Corey Davis with less upside? If that is a “role” they think they need filled then Higgins makes a lot of sense, but if they want someone to stretch the field or provide big plays then they are probably barking up the wrong tree here.
I should note that the Titans probably love some off the field/out of his control things about Higgins like the fact that he grew up in Tennessee or the fact that he was part of such a successful program in college.
