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.
Agree about Hightower. As for Worthy, I wouldn't label him the best penetrator but he is certainly up there. Most of the people who don't think he fits into our defense do so because they look at his weight and instantly presume he can't play NT because he doesn't weigh 340.
