We're going to be going over you, which we already talking about Tea Higgins today, which are very excited because he is my favorite wide receiver number one wide receiver.
Now remember, two ranks wide receiver, but he's my feet wide receiver because of what he can bring to the table, and I just naturally haven't natural inclination towards wires there 64 and can go after ball and be dominant on the perimeter on the red zone and things that needed just my favorite wide receiver to watch.
I think most excited for going into the season, not Number one, that just just to be clear, we already owe him.

But before we get into all that.

When you get the chance, we're not gonna mince words were gonna dive right into it.
Take we got to Higgins and his career stats and what we're gonna be looking at really had a successful season there at the combine.
And for a guy who's six four, he runs really well, you really liked some of the things that we've seen out.
Of course, he has a natural inclination for the red zone and whatnot.
He was the number one wide receiver for a very good Clemson offense.
I mean, is the club's offense that has really aton of talent all over the field.
So something that we want to make sure that we keep our eyes on when we wake.
See, Higgins, Because a lot times, you know, we get these guys that are on these ready teams and sometimes a benefit from that.
But this was the lead guy.
This was the guy that they want to when he moved the chains.
But I need a big play when I need to go to the red zone.
This is who Trevor Wars who did well, hands down, going to be number one pick next year, wanted to go to with the ball.
And I love Tea Higgins and what he could bring.
We have his pros and cons list for you and what we're gonna talk about in today's film for him.
And look, we're at the back.
He has tremendous hands in traffic.
I should add in their traffic because there are times where I don't know if you just focus.
Takes his eyes off the ball occasionally.
Ah, man, he's looking channelled up.
Field is wide open.
Well, sometimes drop a ball here and there.
I This is something we've seen that a bigger type.
He's just kind of looking like the big play before it happens.
I would like to see him actually getting consistent habit of no matter what.
The situation is around him, to make sure he's watching ball go all the end to his hands before turning upfield.
He does fault that lapsed a little bit.
I noticed it, man like him when he's wide open or if he hasn't been getting fed the ball consistently throughout the game or to that point, goes through a dry spell.
We hasn't been target as much, he seems immediately lose focus here and there.
That's one of things when I look and I kind of put that on the cards as far as you know, working on.
Uh, I didn't put that on the conversation.
I should have put that in the car.
It's one of things that I've seen as far as his hands go when he's in traffic, when it's a jump ball, when it's a clutch situation, this guy, if you throw it within his radius, he's going come down with doesn't matter of the feathers on his back.
He has two defenders.
They're jumping up within the UN's own.
It does not matter.
He will come down with that ball.
So the other day, this guy has great hands.
It's just probably more of a one hunt.
Percent always be focused situation, which is something that can break out of.
We've seen players break out of it coming at the college round before he gets off the line.
Now, have you looked at Khan's? What I do have on there I need you need to work on his hand fighting.
He gives online really well, his body.
He's very good at sidestepping the defender, setting him up the go outside inside and being able to kind of get a clean break off the line of scrimmage when trying to B J.
The thing that he's not great at is when, and this very rarely happened in college corners usually aren't this size.
But what does happen sometimes time of the faces corner that has a more physical skill set about him, and he actually has to use his hands to get off the line of scrimmage.
That is where he definitely lacks a limpet.
So that's kind of that's one of the issue he needs to work on his hand, trying to get off.
He needs to make sure he keeps that defender's hands off of his chest off of his jersey when it's within that five yard area, something that a lot of rookie wide receivers typically do needlework on, especially the perimeter.
Now being any 64 to 15 has a long reach.
This is not something I think is going to be hard for him to learn on how to do a lot of times bigger wide receivers when it first come up out of college because they're, you know, they line up green tea.
Higgins situation a lot up in the slot.
They play inside outside.
They find ways to kind of get him off the line of scrimmage, a little bit of systematically scheme that when you get to the NFL, will actually teach you a hand fight a little bit better.
That's why I expect for wherever tea.
Higgins has one up that he's definitely Maurin strong enough because it is long reach.
It is his hands in the defender.
He's automatically going to create natural separation off the wine, discouraged if he's able to get two defenders chat.
So if this works on that hand fighting a little bit, I think he'll be fine.
Definitely something typical for a college wide receiver who's six forward Haller to maybe have issue with when they first in the NFL.
But it's not something they think is going to hinder him down the road like we talked about his jump ball machine.
He's fantastic, catching the ball in traffic, M bling inside out.
A lot of people want to kind of give him ah, little bit of a raw check.
Mark what? It comes to route running.
And as you can see there on the cons, I do say he does need to work on a shorter routes, just consenting them up more. So he has.
He's got great hips.
He's really fluid as faras.
Any intermediate option route, post route, deep route.
He's not that part all down.
Is Thea underneath part of the receivers free that he can't needs the work on? Ah, little bit says That's the only issue there.
Ah, but again, that's something that I feel like is gonna be very easily code for him.
I feel like his eight natural possession type wide receiver, and I don't think it's my take very long for him to get those shorter routes down.
Pat being able to use his hips kind of just matter really of them setting him up there.
You're gonna go inside, is gonna run a slant if he's going to run a drag on the inside constantly at the corner outside to get a little matter separation off break as vice versa.
When he tried to set up on a post it note, maybe a short post outside is mostly comes from when he lined up in the slot, which is one of his prose, because this is a guy who did a lot in college and in today's NFL, it doesn't matter if you're 64 wide receiver who's gonna live on the printer 24 7 They want you to be able to calm down.
Sounds like I'll be able to run those routes officially enough to be able to move you all around to make you a mismatch.
Tea Higgins Is that guy coming out of college? So is again something.
He needs the work going in the off season.
It's not something that is going to take very long for him to be ableto approve upon.
As you can see my player calm from him is the marries times.
He reminds me so much.
Are the married Thomas here? It's absolutely ridiculous.
How much reminds you to marry? Tom is just the way he catch the ball the way he runs his routes, the projection they see for his career and what type of why receiver he could be.
Hopefully he just doesn't want in a car accident and doesn't have these injury concerns that really kind of looted the Marius Thomas his career at the very end.
I think you know, big reason why he fell off a cliff all of a sudden from being one of top and wire Seaver's.
Hopefully, it does not happen to you, Higgins, but he could be that featured Y receiver in a top to your type of offense.
The reasons why I'm so excited about him.
Of course, he's always gonna be a guy who's gonna have double digit touchdowns be a possibility any given season.
Coming into the job, he's hands down the first round wide receiver.
Fancy standpoint, of course. Get.
I will always have a caveat.
No matter who we're talking about with the ties, it matters where you go.
But in tea Higgins case, I don't see too many teams out there where he would not become the number one wide receiver, if not in year one, probably at some point, close in his shorter term of his career, heading upon where he winds up, that if he has another top and number one receiver that he wants up up with in this Dr Class I I personally think it would be from a fantasy standpoint, would be absolutely fantastic if he were to somehow wind up with the Green Bay Packers and build a pair of with the bonsai Adam because you would have to big time.
Why receivers bigger to the wide receivers? Both whom to play inside and outside of each other with Aaron Rodgers.
From fancy standpoint, I probably the number one place that I would want to see him go.
Course we'll see what happens.
But this is a guy who is definitely going to have a lot of value, not just for dynasty purposes, but depending upon where he winds up at will have value in redraft leagues.
This year is one of the questions about him that I really don't agree with his people to talk about.
We don't really have a lead and speed, and I know he's probably gonna come in and wow you with his 40 although there's still one of actually running a previous and 40 at the end of the day, is not gonna be that type of situation with the Higgins when these guys are like 64 so these guys are long striders.
That's what's he Higgins is meaning.
He's not gonna run a great time in a track suit type of competition.
But put on the film, Put on the pads.
Higgins did not stretch out the defense, make big plays down the field with ease whenever he would, too, because that long stride sneaks up on the fenders.
They kill act cushion, entering them in the corner on a consistent rate.
And then what winds up happening is that tea Higgins couldn't take it defender down the field or post route on a date grounded because he's 64 of you throw it up there. You put in this area.
A lot of times he's gonna wanna being able to come down with the balls.
All sees one on one, so I didn't see any issues.
But see, he gets being able to pop off the field, being able to be a playmaker, being able to get down the field threat.
In fact, that's probably one of the strongest of his game.
So this idea of his elite speed maybe not being toe where people want it to be, and somehow it's going to be an issue, All you do is watch them.
You know that's not going to be a problem whatsoever.
So when it comes that when it comes to talking about that, get a little bit annoyed.
Because if you watched film here is one of those situations.
People too much put too much stock in the combine and are not watching film to see.
No, this guy's gonna be perfectly fine before we jump into the film.
We do have a sponsor.
I do want to talk you guys about fanatics, another new one.
Here they're the number one fans, boards, apparel and memorabilia store in the world.

I'll give you all access to whatever discount they are going to have available for you at the Thanh.
So now with that all said and done, we're going to have go ahead and get into the film off tea Higgins here.
And it's gonna be a nice little breakdown for you guys.
We have a number of things kind of go over.
Ah, lot of big time plays.
A lot of positives take out.
There wasn't a lot.
There was a lot of negatives in his film.
The guy can block, run, you can block, you can block for the run.
Being a beer type of receiver. You want to see that physical.
He definitely brings that he could do.
There's just so many different than he can be able to do that.
We're going to wash on this film.
So when we're going to hear, like we always do, we're gonna let you watch the first light all the way through.
And then on the second way out, we'll break it down on the on way back.
Okay, so it's a lot.
We're in a red zone.
Situation makes a nice play.
The cornet ends over.
There is a beautiful throw in one of Britain's Lord stuff.
But what he does is the thunder here.
He's defenders trying to jam him at the law.
If you watch it here and watch what he does here.
Bam tells him up inside, gets right to the outsides.
And all of a sudden, the corners leaning.
He'd off balance right away.
Now see Higgins and just turn on the Jets and go to the core of the end zone and beat to safety there.
And this is just one of his best traits.
What he can D'oh! Look, extends his arm a little bit.
Not all the way.
So they're the flag, gets a little bit of separation, tracking the ball right here.
Defender has absolutely no chance, makes a great over the shoulder catch and then gets two feet down with ease.
This is one of things he he was going to be so effective in in the NFL level.
He's going to be a red zone threatening matter who it is he goes to.
That's one of the big things about him going into the NFL level.
It really translates well on those that could play here.
We're we're gonna watch a big play on this one, so it's not the first time.
Only through will break out on the second.
Now you get to have this play.
I want to put this plate here to illustrate the point that I was making earlier of.
There's absolutely no reason to question Tea Higgins at least speed, because there's absolutely no reason to not think this guy cannot top off field whenever he wants to.
He's done this consistently throughout his career, especially last season, no matter who they're playing against.
I know South Carolina that the best competition, but he did it in the national championship game against L issues all what you're gonna have a little tape of in just a little bit.
The center comes out, runs a nice route, gets the outside and bamboo shoots up the privilege blowed by the entire defense, essentially down the field for her. Lawrence.
That's what makes his nice cut run a little bit of a semi wheel route and just just blows by everybody. That's it.
Blows by a bright when you have that long stride.
Don't need to run off for 34 In order have that.
Elites need to be able to be that everybody down the field that one of the great things about it now in this plate got some good, some fantastic right running girl in this play.
And this is one instance where I say look while he's short route running needs to be, you know, it's short curls ashore, drags short, slanting to be worked on a little bit, as Faras is setting up his his body position with the defender at the end of day.
I'm not worried about because this guy has a natural inclination for out has really good hips, especially for how tall he is.
That was watching on this one.
Look, we did a defender there.
I'm totally, completely burned him around.
Completely turned him around.
It's called a kind of, ah, corner, post route.
What? How fluid this cut is.
Look, how fluid is cut is.
It's one motion he doesn't have to.
He doesn't have a stutter step.
He doesn't have to come to a stop and they break out.
He's able to distinct his foot in the dirt and go right to Ginza and look how flat he is.
Look how flat he is off the stick.
He's not going down the field himself.
Back the coverage.
He is going straight to the silent.
Where is all the separation in the world? Fender has no chance.
Like very um, first down.
I'm gonna make this guy miss to the God has a fluidity about him, Especially when you're talking about outside route intermediate routes, deposed routes.
He has the flu ity about him to be able to make wide open lanes of separation for him's out with the other quarterback.
Now, on this place where we're gonna be watching here, he's got a lot of patients on routes for a rookie.
There's a lot of nuances that you see out of veteran wide receivers.
That teaching is already has a very good idea of in a case.
You can't see it right here, Cub, come play a little bit into it.
See Higgins down here, the bottom screen.
So watch them first play and we'll break it down for you on the second.
There's a national champs of game, in case you guys could not tell him.
He doesn't do anything crazy special here.
But what does he do? Hearing the wide receiver? He's not going full boat. He's not going fools.
Brent. He's letting the play develop.
He already has that reason station.
He knows as soon as this wide receiver come around, hook around him right away and all of a sudden he knows I am wide open in the zone, the linebackers.
So cutting the middle of the field.
I'm heading away from Middlefield.
Safety is going.
Do you kind of take away the post guy that he's coming here? And he has his back turned towards tea.
Higgins, once there's drag route, comes all the way through the border is gonna pick him up his nose like look at me wide open.
And instead of going full sprint and tried to being a fool, try to make a big play year.
He's like, Don't slow down.
I'm gonna make a wide open lane.
Make myself available.
Just throw me the ball and I'll do the rest.
I mean that that is good rap.
Morning. That's good field awareness.
That's how you patient.
It's how you wanna play develop, and it's also understanding when you go 100% in your routes and want to take something off.
It's kind of like it's kind of like being pitcher in baseball.
Sometimes you got a 100 mile per hour fastball.
Sometimes you gotta throw a changeup.
It's not always gonna be full go for goal from goal and a lot of time.
These rookie wide receivers, especially ones that are pressing in a big time situation of this in the national change game, which team has had a great game and by the way, a lot of times they will rush things. He's very patient.
He left the game come to him, one of things I really like about his taping myself.
I see consistently on his tape throughout, not just this past year, but really throughout his entire career.
Now, on this next plays a Nilis Trish in here on how he can play inside and outside, and why that medicines too dangerous.
I received the NFL level and gives him more prospect ability, not just from an NFL standpoint, but from a fancy standpoint.
Well, because he'll get extra targets.
Being able to play inside and outside was what we covet out of our receivers.
I was watching on the first play here will break it down on the *** now again, making a big play on the post.
So you haven't want up down here, Chris, you couldn't tell the defender is like, you know, 12 yards off ball.
So he has all room in the world here.
Comes out to set them up. Now watch.
Watch how you break breaks outside.
Just get the defender to open up a little bit just to bring him outside.
Just a hat and then one foot in the dirt out lose any speed.
That is what is impressive.
Me when you're 64 to be able to you but your turns without losing any speed, can really make you dangerous as going give you natural separation at the next level.
I know defender in this situation is not playing him very tight to begin with, but it's more about watching his McCann's on this route didn't lose a step on that cut and all of a sudden is wide open now to get a nice little catch there.
Because I know different wasn't playing him incredibly tight in that situation.
But it just you do that even defenders on you're going to create a national separation of able to make breaks like that.
They're that sharp on a post without having the brakes breed.
And that's another thing I really seen.
I liked about CNN's thus far.
Now, lack later, we're gonna talk about last victim to talk about.
He has dropped two times, and this this is what I was talking about.
Sometimes he fights the ball a little bit, and this catches that he should make its it's plays.
That should be easily now.
This wasn't easiest player in the world.
It was the travel.
Warren's kind of guns the ball a little bit on this one, more so than he should.
So is watching the 1st 1 We kind of break down what we see in the 2nd 1 See kind of bobs there, there.
Now it's about a It's hard to tell at this angle, but it looks like the ballot 10 yard out, eight yard out.
Or so Lorne's kind of guns and Adam and you don't really need to, because Higgins was naturally wide open on this play, but it still should be a simple pitching hatch, and he just gets both hands on it.
It just doesn't kind of bring it and just kind of fight the ball and kind of.
It's almost if you kind of swats at the ball rather than having the soft hands of getting his hands ready like his hand weren't ready in time for the ball to be out there right there.
And that's something I see throughout his tape. It's a little concerning.
He is somebody who do you think, kind, The mold of Dez Bryant.
We'll have some drops.
They're gonna drive you crazy at the same time, he's gonna have those big plays gonna have those moment where he's going to be able to give you what you're looking for, give you the productive productivity that you're looking for.
So you know, you have outweigh the good that there are gonna be dropped situations for him.
But I'm not overall concerned about tea Higgins at the end of the day by by any stretch of the means.
So that breaks down or tea Higgins tape Lego set with him.
He's my third ranked wide receiver, but he's probably my favorite wide receiver for fancy standpoint, because this is a guy who we know is going to be double digit touchdown threat every single year.
This is a guy that I do believe going to have free Dr Value in a rookie season.
This is a guy who's going to be, I believe, a number one wide receiver for every team he doesn't wind up.
Getting drafted on.
Not to. Judy won't be.
See, the Lamb won't be who we broke that last week in those player profile thought life's been checked out on YouTube, SportsCastr or Facebook.
Any point you want to.
But in TV case, I just love his physical natural gifts or what he's going to be able to bring to the table.
And he gets some of his raw aspects as far as a shorter routes down, which I believe he is.
If he's able to clean up some of those last days, gold drops he does sometimes have.
This is going to be a top wide receiver guy that we're going to be talking about a monster guy that ever a prototypical NFL type of receiver that everybody's going to want.
I mean, that's just who this guy is planning on being.
I just I see very little red flights in his game, Um, so I'm very glad to see where T hearings winds up that kind of breaks down, why he's going to be so valuable, what he's going to be able to do from a draft standpoint and how he translates to the NFL.
Be very curious to see where he winds up at, but that's gonna break down for our video here for tea.
We're going to be back even later, today or sometime tomorrow.
I'm not quite sure yet with, Ah, um, with Hunter with Harry Rugs is player profiles. Spotlight.
