Former Clemson receiver Tee Higgins was selected No. 33 overall by the Cincinnati Bengals in the 2020 NFL Draft on Friday night.
Higgins will now be teammates with former LSU quarterback Joe Burrow as they try to grow together as youngsters in the NFL.
Check out some of the instant reactions on Twitter:
Tee Higgins was the best ladder climber in all of college football last year, if any WR should come off the board next it should be him. #throwitup— Tajh Boyd (@TajhB10) April 24, 2020

And the second round of tonight’s draft opens with the Bengals using the No. 33 overall pick on Clemson WR Tee Higgins.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) April 24, 2020
Talk about a weapon! ????— Clemson Football (@ClemsonFB) April 24, 2020
With the first pick of the second round, the #Bengals had trade options. But no, they pick at No. 33 #Clemson WR Tee Higgins. His ankle got flagged for stiffness, but it barely affected his draft stock. Joe Burrow gets a weapon.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) April 24, 2020
A few years ago, Tee Higgins was telling a few of us on the Clemson beat who he models his game after. Toward the top of the list? A.J. Green.— Grace Raynor (@gmraynor) April 24, 2020
Zac Taylor on drafting WR Tee Higgins: "We have to keep adding weapons as best we can." Felt like he was a guy they couldn't pass up on. #Bengals— Marisa Contipelli (@BengalsMarisa) April 24, 2020
Bengals select Clemson WR Tee Higgins at No. 33.— Paul Dehner Jr. (@pauldehnerjr) April 24, 2020
Two things the #Bengals have done pretty well in recent years/historically. Draft in the second round. Draft WRs in the second round.
They go back to the well in a huge spot to let him grow with Joe Burrow.
Ravens considered Clemson's Tee Higgins, who just went off board to Bengals with first pick in 2nd round, at 28. I think they understood there was no chance of him getting close to the 50's tonight.— Jeff Zrebiec (@jeffzrebiec) April 24, 2020
Joe Burrow + Tee Higgins = fun— Max Olson (@max_olson) April 24, 2020
Still have no idea how Tee Higgins falls to round 2. Yeah, sure, it's a super deep WR draft. But still!

Bengals coach Zac Taylor said he met with Dabo Swinney for an hour and Dabo raved about Tee Higgins.— Ben Baby (@Ben_Baby) April 24, 2020
Developed a prospect crush on Higgins at this camp before his profile really took off or #Clemson really entered the picture. So fluid for his size and great high-pointing ability. https://t.co/JxGgJU4upL— Paul Strelow (@PaulStrelowTI) April 24, 2020
A throwback clip of new @Bengals WR #NFLDraft pick Tee Higgins from the 2016 Charlotte Opening. Looks little different now having filled out but even back then was very impressive-Long & explosive w/ excellent body control.
