Default Re: If Hightower is available at 24, is he a no-brainer pick?

If it comes down to a choice between Hightower, Adams, and Martin, with all of the above off the board along with the corners, I think its Hightower. But ya never know.
I dont think Glenn is a no brainer at #24, he might turn out to be a RT only and if that is the case, there are lots of guys later on to take like Mitchell Schwartz, to play RT.

If Jon Martin slides, I think he is a no brainer. Athletic, long arms, prototypical LT that needs a year or 2 before moving over there. Adams is another question mark to me. Has all the tools, but doesnt play like an elite prospect.

Hightower might be the equivalent of a Ford F-150 pickup. Going to be solid, but not fast or flashy, rather more versatile. Not a sexy pick, but should be a 2 down ILB or a possible bookend OLB to Woodley in a couple years. I agree, he's not a no brainer, but just a good football player.
