2012 NFL Mock Draft: Philadelphia Eagles Select Dont'a Hightower Of Alabama

Another SB Nation 2012 NFL Mock Draft was posted Tuesday, and Ryan Van Bibber has the Philadelphia Eagles selection Alabama inside linebacker Dont'a Hightower with the No. 15-overall selection.

"Where Hightower would play in Philly's defense remains to be seen," says Van Bibber. "His best fit might be on the strong side in their 4-3, but he might be able to play well in the middle. Wherever he plays, the Eagles defense lacked anyone with his instincts and power among their linebackers."

Now, just a few days ago another NFL mock draft had the Eagles selecting Boston College linebacker Luke Kuechly. So, it seems the consensus thinking is if there's a play-making linebacker available the Eagles are going to grab them up quickly.
