A second-year option who had legal issues to address last year, Higbee is a former wide receiver who gained muscle without losing his fluid athletic ability. He's a playmaker in the middle of the field and after the catch who plays with the toughness of a tight end. The Rams staff selected rookie Gerald Everett as its future Jordan Reed, but are leaning towards Higbee at present.

Summary

Tyler Higbee played sparsely in his rookie season behind Lance Kendricks with just 11 receptions and a single touchdown. Kendricks moved on to Green Bay this offseason, paving the way for Higbee to see time as the starter in 2017. The Rams drafted move-tight end Gerald Everett in the second round, but rookie tight ends are notoriously slow starters for a large workload. Higbee profiled as a high-floor, low-ceiling prospect exiting Western Kentucky as a strong producer but limited physical palette. Everett will get every opportunity to emerge with a larger role later in the season, but expect Higbee to see a strong majority of the snaps to open the year. (May 21)

Rams | Tyler Higbee to avoid jail time (Sat Jul 15, 07:56 PM) - Los Angeles Rams TE Tyler Higbee pled guilty to an assault charge that stemmed from a 2016 fight in a parking lot in Kentucky. He will be required to pay the victim an undisclosed amount and must perform 250 hours of community service but will avoid jail time.

Our View: Higbee had some character concerns (mainly this transgression) coming out of Western Kentucky last year. With his legal problems behind him, we shall see if the league wants to step in and punish him. Higbee is an intriguing "F" tight end with upside as a receiver. He's competing with rookie Gerald Everett (second round, South Alabama) to be the starting tight end for the Rams in 2017.
