Could the Colts be in play to jump over both the Ravens and Steelers for Hightower?

This would go along with Neal Coolong's thoughtful post about the Ravens jumping the Steelers for Hightower.

Neal's Post

I would not at all be surprised if Indy trades up to get Hightower. Think about it, their HC now was the Ravens DC last year, and he knows the value of having Ray Lewis as a teamer leader and running that D. Further, if Baltimore feels so highly about Hightower, you can beat your rear end Chuck Pagano does too. And if you are rebuilding your team, you get your signal callers on offense (Luck) and def (Hightower) in the same draft and set yourself up for 8-10 years of stability at those positions. It would be a brilliant move by the Colts. The only thing I am wondering, will they want to jump up those 10 spots and cost themselves some draft choices, or will they sit tight and hope Coby Fleener falls to them to give Luck his safety blanket.

It is hard to believe the Colts, in need of size on the def front 7 with their switch to the 34, and the impact Hightower could bring to that side of the ball, I can't see how this is not a scenario the Colts have been driving themselves crazy over.
