Tyler Higbee

School: Western Kentucky
Position: TE
Positive: All-Conference selection as a senior when he moved into the starting role than posted 38 receptions, 563 yards and 8 TDs. Missed 5 games last season with a knee sprain. Developing tight end with a complete game. Runs well, plays faster than his 40 time and displays the ability to get into the secondary and make plays. Uses his frame to shield away defenders, adjusts to the errant throw and makes the reception in stride. Catches the ball like a big possession receiver. Uses his hands to separate from defenders, slides into the open spot of the field and consistently makes himself an available target. Keeps the play in bounds running after the catch showing the ability to pick up positive yardage. Plays bigger than his listed size. Gives effort blocking showing explosion at the point of attack and working to finish the play. Plays with a nasty and aggressive attitude.
Negative: Had his terrific senior campaign interrupted by knee issues. Occasionally lets the pass get inside him. Not a dominant blocker. Arrested on April 10th and charged with second-degree assault, second-degree evading police and public intoxication.
Analysis: Higbee showed a lot of development in his game and offers size, growth potential as well as next level speed. He's worth considering in the late rounds and could see significant playing time on Sunday if properly coached and allowed to develop.
