I don't see where this matters but farrior played faster and ran a faster 40 than woodley and still had the ability to change direction which hightower does not and woodley is not as adept at. Woodley also runs his 40 faster than hightower. It almost seems to me like youre suggesting we draft him as a weakside linebacker... On top of that wood covers mostly in the flat. ILB's in this defense drop in coverage a lot. The 3-4 zone blitz is all about being unpredictable, not knowing what linebackers will do until its done. We would lose some of that ability with a player like hightower. The 40 time is irrelevant. Watch gametape and see his ingame speed before making a call on him
