Dont’a Hightower, Alabama

-

Height: 6-2. Weight: 265. Scouting report: His size and strength make him effective against the run, and his overall athleticis­m allows him to handle coverage responsibi­lities. Some think he’s played too cautiously since tearing his left anterior cruciate ligament in 2009.

Bunting’s take: Looks like a potential impact-caliber 3-4 inside linebacker who has the skill set to win inside vs. the run and create pressure on third down as a savvy rush guy.
