[quote user="King Sully"][quote user="slipknottin"]Still not sure where Hightower fits for them[/quote]

i feel like he's kind of forced to play olb in there 3-4 and de when there in a 4-3, mayo and spikes are purely inside backers in my opinion.[/quote]

This is my guess.

Base 4-3 = Mayo at WLB, Spikes at MLB, Hightower at SLB

Nickel = Mayo at WLB, Spikes at MLB, Hightower at DE

3-4 Spikes and Mayo inside, Hightower at OLB.

I think the patriots play a lot of 50 front too, and Hightower as the up LB actually fits really well there
