Not a big fan of Hightower. I won't be thrilled if he is Rd 1 pick. But if he is the highest rated player at 1.24 then i am ok with that pick. Also i would prefer someone like Lamar Holmes at OT in Rd 5 instead of Nate Potter. I like rest of the picks especially Rd 7.

I agree.
Bear in mind, I'm becoming more sold on Hightower. I've come to think that he will be a good, strong player at 23, 24, 25... with his young legs. But at 28, 29... with 6+ years of wear-and-tear on his body, how much of a liability will he have become.

With a guy like Mychal Kendricks, he can lose a half-step and still accomplish all he needs to in this league. When Hightower loses that half-step (which could come from wear-&-tear, injury, etc.), he has no where to go. Earl Holmes was something of a poorman's Hightower. As a younger player, he was good. As he got along in his career and he lost a little speed, he quickly became a liability out there.

I think I would take Kendricks over Hightower straight up.

If Cordy Glenn is still there at #24, I would take him over Hightower. I did this assuming that Glenn would be off the board.
