Packers Draft Hightower in Twitter Mock Draft

In a Twitter mock draft Saturday, the Packers picked the Alabama linebacker at No. 28 overall.

Participating in a Twitter mock draft Saturday afternoon, Rotoworld draft analyst Josh Norris used the Packers' 28th overall pick on Alabama linebacker Dont'a Hightower.

The captain of an Alabama defense that allowed just 8.2 points per game last season, Hightower is likely the top pass-rushing interior linebacker in the 2012 NFL draft. Many scouts also think he can play outside linebacker in a 3-4.

You can view Brian Carriveau's draft feature on Hightower here.

He would be a good choice but they say his coverage skills may not be the best. I guess worse case move him inside and move Hawk to anyone willing to pay that horrible deal Thompson gave him.
