This is why, in my very humble opinion (IMVHO), I thought we should have taken Hightower in the first round this year. I know DeCastro was a steal at that spot, but the more pressing need was ILB, which we have no replacement for a guy on the way down.
There's better ILB's in the later rounds of this draft than Hightower. For example, take his former teammate Nico Johnson. I'd take Nico over Dont'a any day of the week in terms of athleticism and ceiling. Hightower might have already peaked which is a scary thought.

Of course, if Ogletree decides to come out in this draft then we really don't have a choice if he's sitting there on the board. Ogletree is the only guy I'd take over Jordan and Montgomery because of how talented he is and the need he fills.

DeCastro was the best pick of the draft - no question.
