ANDY BEHRENS: But there's no question that rookies are going to have a huge impact in Cincinnati this year. The team used the first-overall pick on Joe Burrow, a quarterback coming off perhaps the greatest season in college-football history, but I don't want to talk about Burrow. I've already recorded, I don't know, two, three videos about him. He's great. He's set up for a great season.

I want to talk about another rookie, Tee Higgins, a wide receiver 6' 4", 215. He was a dynamic threat at Clemson, 2,100 receiving yards and 25 receiving touchdowns over the past two years. We've seen him against the toughest-possible competition at the absolute highest level of college football. We know what he can do, and he's great.

He's a highlight maker. Profiles basically a lot like AJ Green. That's an incredible pairing in Cincinnati.

I think Tee Higgins probably going to start right away. We're certainly going to see him in three-receiver sets. Has a chance to be the top-scoring fantasy rookie receiver in 2020. Don't forget about him in drafts.
