Only last week Champion Data released its annual top 30 draft power rankings and to great surprise the small plucky forward Higgins came in at Number 1.
So when his name hadn't been called by Pick 17 on Draft night it was no surprise that the Tigers pounced and could hardly believe their luck. Having built a game style in 2017 on small forwards and inside 50 pressure, Higgins more than fits the bill. So much so that they are expecting him to be pushing for selection in Round 1, 2018.
So what does a player like Higgins do on Draft day? Wakes up at 5am and goes for a kick of course.
