So you are a Hightower hater then?? The kid seems to do a good job of getting to his landmarks in zone pass coverage. Will he run with the Jimmy Graham and Gronkowski type TE's, no, but neither will hardly any other ILB in the NFL.
I think Hightower will be solid inside and could even play outside opposite Woodley if needed. Cordy Glenn is looking like a RT and I dont think we need to spend #24 at RT, but he would be a good one.
Mike Adams positive test for pot probably slips him off the list in the 1st and if anything, I would say it puts Bobbie Massie around there.
Honestly, I hope its any one of Hightower, Jon Martin, Mark Barron, Bobbie Massie, Kevin Zeitler.
