I was torn between Poe's potential vs Hightower's production but in the end the draft's depth at those positions and Hightower's ability to start from day 1 tilted the scales in Hightower's favor.
I stared at Hightower for quite awhile before I decided to go with the OT.
Though I wonder why you went that high for a what is probably going to be a Ted backer in the Steelers scheme. He doesn't strike me as being good enough in space to play the MAC role. I guess it's late enough for Poe at this point; that's where I'd have gone, especially with both Steelers NTs looking oooooold last season.
Things really didn't break well for you.
