Hightower is a beast. If he is available to us at 24 and they pass on him and he ends up in Baltimore we , as fans , will scream bloody murder. Hightower is a very high motor intelligent player (he called and ran Saban's defense) , who I beleive could come in and start very early in the season and quite possibly be the NFL defensive rookie of the year.

I want Hightower!! would love to have a great prospect at ILB. Plus, I need a new jersey soon to replace my Harrison jersey. Not sure who that player would be.

I highly doubt the Steelers will select a guy who tested positive for marijuana at the Combine two months ago...


Ohio State's Mike Adams might not slip in NFL draft

By Jason La Canfora
Published: April 19, 2012

Ohio State tackle Mike Adams tested positive for marijuana at the NFL Scouting Combine in February, according to league sources, but has been upfront with teams since learning of the result and might not slip that much because of it.

Interested teams have been in close contact with Adams, and have been impressed that he has already completed counseling.

The positive result will make him a moderate risk, and could result in him sliding to the second round, but other players with positive results in years past still have ended up in the first round. Adams has told people he was unaware of the positive result at the time of combine interviews, which is why he did not tell teams then.

Since then he has been forthright and league sources said he is viewed as a "good kid" who obviously made a mistake. The key for Adams will be learning from it.

Several teams said they were impressed with Adams during interviews with him.

Several teams picking late in the first round and early in the second round are in the market for offensive linemen in this draft.

Some teams that like Adams may be able to trade down and still get him. For players, falling into the second round could cost them about $300,000 a year, but, on the positive side, second-round contracts are for four years and not five, so players could get that second contract sooner.

Adams' representatives were not immediately available for comment.

i'm just wondering what the farrior haters will think of hightower when he's getting burned by rb's and te's, he's a good run stuffer but can't cover for crap (like farrior in his later career).

i'd love to compare him to levon kirkland, but kirk was a good cover LB despite his size

Hightower or Glenn. honestly its just a guessing game. I think Hightower has a bigger chance to be great but both will be solid players.

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.

Couldn't agree with you more.
Sure Hightower would be nice, but our O-line needs are much greater than ILB, Safety, NT.
If we want to see this team max out while we have Ben and these talented WR's, the O-line has got to be improved significantly.
Otherwise, same results as last year should be expected.
Make the playoffs and out you go.

What do you like so much about Cordy Glenn that you think we need to spend the #24 pick on him?? What if we could get Kelechi Osemele or Mitchell Schwartz in the 2nd round?? Or Brandon Brooks in the 2nd or 3rd round??

This is the issue in this years draft. Lots of good O linemen that will be around in the forst 3 rounds. Keuchly and Hightower are the only 2 real talents worth that 1st round pick at LB

Cordy Glenn might not be a good guard in the NFL anyways. He could be the equivalent of Gosder Cherilus, a RT.

The failures of the offensive line are also vastly exaggerated while ignoring the excessive amount of injuries that they suffered last year and the fact that much of the damage Roethlisberger takes is largely his own fault. You could have the best 5 linemen in the game that work in sync with one another and Ben will still take 3 times as many sacks as Peyton Manning. Health alone will improve upon what the line did last year with Pouncey, Colon, Legursky, and Gilbert all healthy. The Steelers do NOT need a first round offensive lineman in a deep class, and it's looking unlikely that the BPA at #24 will be one.
