Inside Linebacker prospect Dont'a Hightower was scheduled to meet with Steelers representatives at the Scouting Combine on Saturday night. According to a tweet from Ken Laird at the Pittsburgh Trib: Hightower: "Talked to a couple of [Steelers] scouts since I’ve been here, they’re interested in me, looking fwd to talking to coach Tomlin".
One of the potential first round picks the Steelers have available to them. Although one knock against him is what he said about players he looks up to in the NFL.
Hightower listed as the guys he looks up to in NFL "Ray Lewis, Terrell Suggs, James Harrison, LaMarr Woodley." In that order. Hmm.
Ok that's it, forget about him now...LOL j/k
It's not a surprise that he met with the Steelers, they do their homework on everyone but it's nice to hear that at least he feels they are interested in him.
