Would you rather have Haden and sit Clements....or Williams and sit Snyder?
I'd rather have the best cover corner in this draft to help with our secondary overall, take Iupati with our second 1st rounder, and draft a RT like Jason Fox in the 2nd.
You're speculating on 2 points:
1) That Iupati will still be available and can actually play RT, drafting Iupati that high for OG is a reach
2) That Fox is available in the 2nd
After watching Snyder get destroyed all day on Sunday I have come to the same conclusion as MD, we NEED a RT now!
Mike Iupati, G, Idaho. There is a lot of intrigue about him. He is no doubt an elite prospect who will be a first-round pick because of his size, strength, aggressiveness and athleticism. NFL personnel men want to see his athleticism in person to figure out if he can play tackle in the NFL. Nearly every scout who has evaluated Iupati on film says he has the footwork and athleticism to be an NFL left tackle. If he shines in the bowl game and during Senior Bowl drills, he could challenge Oklahoma State's Russell Okung and Oklahoma's Trent Williams to be the first offensive lineman drafted.
From a previous post I wrote in this thread: At this point Williams makes the best candidate for ROT. Iupati is in the group as well but I need to see him in the Senior Bowl and Combine before he leapfrogs Williams.
I never said Iupati couldn't be an option, I just need to see some things first. Just like Branden Albert who was an OG and was a sure thing at LT coming out....he's struggling at LT and will have to be moved to RT or back to OG. I do know what I'm talking about, at this point Williams makes the most sense...in a month or two my opinion could change.
