Clemson Tigers star receiver Tee Higgins has been a popular name throughout the entire year, long being projected as a top pick in this year's NFL Draft. His name stayed in the news during the NFL Combine, when the receiver opted to sit out of testing, opting instead to only test at Clemson's pro day.

Still, his absence at the combine is not expected to affect his draft stock, with many teams targeting him as a top choice to produce immediately, and he's still expected to be selected within the first two rounds. These are of the most likely teams to draft Higgins.

Even if some of the top prospects like Jerry Jeudy and CeeDee Lamb are off the board once the Indianapolis Colts are on the clock, they may opt to stick with taking a receiver in order to make the offense less dependent on T.Y. Hilton's ability to stay healthy. Indianapolis is also a frontrunner to bring in Philip Rivers, and getting him a new, shiny toy could be the best way to start things off on the right foot. The colts also hold the 34th and 44th overall picks in the draft, so if missing the combine does hurt Higgins' draft stock, they could easily target him early on Day 2.

2. Green Bay Packers

It is no secret that the Green Bay Packers' wide receiver room essentially consists of Davante Adams and a bunch of practice squad players. They need to add receiving talent this offseason, and they may choose to do so with their first pick here. At 6-foot-4, Higgins is the kind big, smooth receiver that Matt LaFleur loves, and it would not be surprising to see the Packers go out and get him at No. 30.

3. Kansas City Chiefs

Sammy Watkins has a potential out in his contract and there have been rumors that he could sit out this season. So, while you may think the Kansas City Chiefs do not need more offense, Andy Reid is a glutton for many things, and offensive weapons is one of them. Watkins has never really panned out anyways, so Higgins could come in and lock down a role that is open on this offense — a big wide receiver that is capable of running the field.
