At the LSU pro day he ran a 4.76 40, Ali ran a 4.74 by the way, he had I think 31 reps one the bench and was supposedly one of the strongest guys all around on the LSU team last year. Could he end up being a sleeper type pick at linebacker?
I didn't see Highsmith's 4.74 but I did see his 4.88. His forte is supposed to be speed, I don't think anyone will want to draft an undersized, slow linebacker in the 3rd round? It would be a reach IMO.
He lacks instincts. He is big, strong and fast. He sheds tackles and covers receivers well, but just doesn't have a nose for the ball. Maybe he'll land somewhere and get coached up, but I just don't see my fellow WMHS alum becoming a huge impact in the NFL.
