Clemson wide receiver Tee Higgins was the first pick in the Friday night portion of the NFL Draft as the Bengals added the player who’s tied for Clemson’s all-time receiving touchdown record with 27.

Higgins, who says he grew-up a Bengals fan in Tennessee, joins quarterback Joe Burrow, the number one overall pick in the Draft, as building blocks for the future Cincinnati offense.

In a selection that went against Draft projections, former Clemson safety Tanner Muse, who worked as a linebacker in the Tigers’ March 12th pro day, was a late third round selection of the Las Vegas Raiders with the 100th pick overall.

Muse joins former Clemson teammates Cle Ferrell, Trayvon Mullen, and Hunter Renfrow with Las Vegas.
