Best fit as a 3-4 SOLB, but can play 3-4 ILB as well. thus killing two critical needs with top pick.
First, Hightower measured 6'2" at the combine with 32" arms. Not a good candidate for 3-4 OLB (though there are OLBs who fit that profile). Second, no NFL team will try to teach a rookie 2 different positions. There's just not enough reps to get him ready. So if Hightower is drafted by the Texans, it's likely to be an ILB. And I just don't see them taking an ILB in the 1st round.
