Dont'a Hightower is used to winning, and he's used to contributing to one of the best defenses in college football.
That type of experience and familiarity with winning is one of the main reasons he was so valued in the NFL draft. It's also played a big role in the Patriots' decision to move up in the draft to take him.
He's now a Patriot, and New England is hoping he can bring those winning ways with him to Foxboro where Bill Belichick's bunch are already established winners.
See what Hightower had to say after being drafted on Thursday night in the video above.
