No. 25 New England Patriots: ILB Dont’a Hightower, Alabama –- Hightower, who made the calls and defensive adjustments for Alabama last season, was a finalist for four national awards last season and had career highs in tackles (85) and sacks (four).

Comment: The Patriots make another move to fortify their defensive front. Hightower is huge and likely will come off the field in passing situations.
