I was at the Sun Bowl today and specifically watched him all game. First he was playing center - not OT. Second, he seemed lathorgic and seems to have a weak motor. I never saw him finish a play or bust his a$$ to get a downfield block.

Saying this, I hope we pass on him because i have seen in a lot of mocks, they have us taking him
Yeah, I kind of feel you. I think there are better options. I'd prefer an OT with quicker feet. I'd be very weary of spending an early pick on him. He'll probaby go somewhere around #10, but I don't like the value there.

He looks like he'll struggle with speed rushers, especially in the pros.
and I have similar feelings regarding dude. iff; if and only if others are not available then perhaps.
Question for you.........how often do you see a center get to the second level on any run? It is rare for centers to be asked to pull or get downfield, unless it's a screen. As far as I'm concerned, I wouldn't mind if the guy could move into the center position if needed. Versatility is actually a plus for offensive linemen. One game that you saw is not enough for the Niners to dismiss a top prospect in a position of need.
After watching Iupati yesterday, it will be hard for ANY OL to impress me this bowl season. OTC and MD were right, Iupati is special.

wasnt the same things said about a teammate of his last year..........Phil Loadholt? Now if only if that guy had panned out to be a starter.......oh wait.....he is.
It Makes me laugh when people judge a player off of one game or a highlight video. Its sad really!
Iupati!

He has, you're right. Aren't they constantly talking about how Brett needs better pass protection?? ... oh wait, yeah, they are...

I would hella rather take Iupati. That guy is going to be a beast of a guard. I'd rather take Iupati and then re-sign Pashos or something. Williams seems to have slow feet to me.

and he is really struggling. He starts because they have nothing else. On NFC playbook they const. focus on him and how he struggles.
Are you guys really judging an OT that had to move to center for one game because of injuries. He actually played well on a really weak O-line. If anything he showed valuable versatility. Not sure if he'll be great at the next level but to judge him poorly based on the only game he's played center is ridiculous.
