Re: SI's Don Banks pre Combine Mock
If it fell this way I would rather take
27 LB Dont'a Hightower Alabama Jr. 6-4 269
Hightower is a versatile and instinctive player who seems ready-made to replace Ryan's in the Texan's defense. He could also factor in the rotation at OLB in pass rush situations.
31 DT Jerel Worthy Michigan State Jr. 6-3 310
Worthy could play in the Texan's D-line rotation initially and develop into Cody's successor sooner than people think. Some miss informed people here think he doesn't fit our 3/4 scheme. That couldn't be further from the truth. He is the best penetrating DT in this draft.
