2016 Guide: What Ourlads' NFL Scouting Services said about TYLER HIGBEE: Western Kentucky, 6056 249 4.80. Fifteen starts over career. From Clearwater, FL. Brandon Doughty’s check down and safety valve receiver. He led all FBS tight ends in yards and was tied for the most touchdowns with six when he injured his left knee versus North Texas. The big tight end played in nine games and averaged 14.8 yards on his 38 catches for the year. Moved from wide receiver to tight end in 2013. Big soft hands and long arms. Gets up the field North and South as soon as he makes the catch. Adjusts well to off-target passes. Catches the ball away from his body. A smooth route runner. Needs more core strength and bulk to be an inline NFL blocking tight end. At Western he was used as a move blocker who could get position and seal the edge in the running game. Was asked to position and wall off as a blocker. Collected 11 receptions versus Indiana as well as two touchdowns and 92 yards versus Marshall. Uses his long frame to his advantage when attacking the ball at the high point. Good timing. If healthy, he will provide depth to a team and will be drafted higher. 2015 stats: 38-563, 14.8 ypr, 8 TD. Medical exclusion at Combine. Sixth/seventh round. (A- 33 1/4, H-10 1/4, BP-DNP, VJ-DNP).
