I mark this year...The Hyphen Draft
 
For two reason, Dont'a Hightower and Alameda Ta'amu

If we draft these two guys we will continue the tradition of our ability to remain a Top 5 defense year in and year out.

Hightower would spell foote for half a year and I believe fully take over, not only did he run the top ranked bama defense basically what we play in the nfl but he is a dominate run stopping ILB.

Ta'amu we would have to take in round 2. I know he is to project round 3 but I don't think he would last till then. Sit be hide hampton and steve m. for a year and when Hampton good and done he will be ready to step in with stevey playing 3rd passing situations. In this video he in dominate on everyplay http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yWOOA2V1k1k. Hes a big strong man who can take on double teams and collapse the pocket.

So these two players will solve all problems and instantly make an impact? Despite being a 34 defense Alabamas defense was much more a 49ers style defense. We run a very intricate defense that really can't be replicated.

Hightower is the player I want badly. I agree with the op simply drafting Hightower will allow us to smoothly transtion into the next era of our defense. He would be a run stopper just like Farrior was and it allows Timmons to keep playing how Timmons plays without having to change his game with the lost of Farrior. Foote would start the year with Hightower spliting time but by the end of the year I believe he is starting full time.

Hard to go wrong with any of the picks as we have needs in many areas. A ILB and NT would be good for the team but really puts us in a bind trying to find a quality starter at G in the 3rd. If we could get your two picks plus say G Brandon Washington in the 3rd (Brooks will probably be gone) It certainly wouldn't be a bad thing.

I personally like Hightower, a quality Guard or OT in the 2nd, and in the 3rd the G or OT position we did not fill in the 2nd. I think i will be happy with almost any high picks this year at any position except TE, or QB.
