just to be clear I dont think the Titans would give up on McCarthy. They could play Hightower at any of the 3 spots. McCarthy's injury history isn't great. Ayers also isn't exactly reliable production.
In general I think Hightower is being underrated. He could go before Upshaw and Barron. He could project to 3-4 OLB and ILB.
Heck he could even go before Kuechly. It's a long shot but it's possible. I see Kuechly as a Chad Greenway type of player, which is great, but he went about 18 in the first round if memory serves. Hightower has 20 pounds on him and runs a 4.6.
