Re: BL Texans Mock Draft post FA
Hightower has very poor agility, no way he can play as 3-4 OLB. He avoided the agility drills at the combine, and there was a very good reason for that.
At his pro day, his 3-cone was 7.55, short shuttle was 4.68. Very poor agility numbers for a LB. Many OLs had better 3cone and SS at the combine. He will be exposed in man coverage in the NFL.
A LB who cannot play all 3 downs is not worth a first round pick, especially in this pass-happy league.
