I'll admit that in 20+ years following the draft, I don't think that I have ever been so high on 4 players from one teams defense as I am Alabama's. Barron, Kirkpatrick, Hightower and Upshaw are players that I would want on the Patriots. I've only watched a few Bama games this year, maybe 4, but Hightower has always stood out to me in every game that I've watched. But yet Upshaw is rated higher than him in just about every draft rating. They have nearly size and speed. So, what is it I'm missing with Upshaw? For those of you who have watched games what has Upshaw done to be rated higher? Or is it that they both are almost the same but the raters think Upshaw will be a better pro? BTW, I know that one is an OLB and the other is an ILB. But I've seen them switch positions with Hightower playing the OLB and Upshaw playing inside.
