Inside Linebacker (4): Jerod Mayo, Brandon Spikes, Dane Fletcher, Tracy White
I can see a lot of versatility there and decent depth
Foe example 3-4 you could go Fanene-Wilfork-Carter/Jones then Ninko, Spikes, Mayo, Hightower. Plus you can use Love at NT and move Vince around
Or 4-3 you could you go Fanene, Wilfork, Love/Pryor, Jones then Hightower, Mayo, Spikes
Hopefully Fanene and Jones on the line and Hightower off the edge will be a significant addition.

Assuming a base 3-4, the Pats are missing a starting caliber DE unless Brace emerges...and even he doesn't have optimal height/reach. Warren could be brought back as a stop-gap or Love/Wilfork could play side-by-side, but in general that is a roster hole.
I don't buy Hightower as a pure OLB. I see him being the wildcard where he makes the QB/RB/OL have to think twice before making a decision. Being able to line up anywhere means mediocre QBs won't be able to drop back 3 steps and throw to their first read without consequence. If Belichick just puts Hightower at a position and gives him a single or vanilla role, I hate the pick.
