Round One, Pick 22

Offensive fire power should be a priority to help Josh Allen grow in 2020, adding a receiver as talented as Tee Higgins is something the Bills desperately need. Tee Higgins is a 6’4′ receiver out of Clemson who can easily high point the ball and win one on one battles and his length is evident in situations where the ball isn’t accurately placed.

While Higgins 40-yard dash wasn’t great coming out of high school at 4.75 seconds, he plays faster on the field and the hope is he will improve on that number at the Combine and Clemson’s Pro Day. Tee Higgins ended 2019 with 1,167 yards, 13 touchdowns and a catch percentage of 73.8%. With the multitude of drops that plagued all the Bills offensive weapons that 73.8% will be a welcomed sight.

Higgins has also been known to be used in jet sweeps and in the 2019 Championship game he rushed for 36 yards and found the endzone. Brian Daboll will be able to scheme up a lot of plays for a top-tier player like Tee Higgins.

Tee Higgins is the perfect player to pair with Josh Allen, just like the Carolina Panthers did with Cam Newton, by adding a lengthy and tall receiver like Kelvin Benjamin to help cover up an accuracy issue will help move the ball down field. Pushing the offensive efficiency up with Tee Higgins will help push the Bills over the hump while creating a safety blanket for the young quarterback in Allen.
