Ready or not as 2020 NFL Draft Boards are already out.

Sporting News released their Top 50 NFL Draft 2020 Big Board and four Tigers were listed with Tee Higgins, Travis Etienne, Isaiah Simmons, and A.J. Terrell.

Higgins was ranked No. 13 overall and the second-best receiver on the draft board behind only Alabama's Jerry Jeudy (2).

"The 6-4, 200-pound receiver averages 16.9 yards per catch with 14 TDs the last two season," the Sporting News said. "He's an efficient big-play receiver who should see those numbers go up as a junior."

Etienne was next up at No. 14 overall and the top running back listed.

"Etienne has 37 rushing TDs on 311 rushing attempts the last three seasons," the Sporting News said. "He averages 7.8 yards per carry. Size might be a question, but game-breaking ability won't be."

Simmons was ranked No. 21 overall and the second-best linebacker behind Alabama's Dylan Moses (20).

"Simmons stayed in school after a breakout season that included 88 tackles and nine tackles for loss," the Sporting News said. "With a few more interceptions, Simmons could push up to the front half of the first round."

Cornerback A.J. Terrell made the list at No. 48 overall and ranked the fifth-best cornerback.
