If the 49ers wanted to take a guard AND a tackle, we could have easily taken Davis AND Bulaga, with the loser playing guard.

Even Jon Gruden stated on ESPN that he though Bulaga will end up being a pro-bowl guard.

So why did we pass and take Iupati instead.

My hunch is that the 49ers have Iupati rated higher as a run-blocker, which Singletary covets.

John Gruden was also asked what team did the best in round #1 and he said the 49ers. You forgot to mention that in your initial post.

I think this is more about you thinking Bulaga is a better OG then Iupati. To think anyone would actually agree with you is mind blowing. On what planet did you think this up? I mean really? Draft 2 OT's? Only Al Davis would do something that stupid. Al Davis is that you?

You can't be serious can you?

Dude seriously? is this guy for real?

Iupati is a f**kin BEAST! He is gonna maul dudes for us!

I don't think you understand. If you take Davis and Bulaga, you're pretty certain AT LEAST ONE of them will be able to be a quality starting RT...the other will be a stud OG

Its not hard to convert a T to a G.

The point is Iupati is going to be the better guard vs Bulaga. Davis is the better tackle

When the scouts eyes leave, your eyes enter.

Iupati dominated at the Senior Bowl practices against All-Stars. That's all the scouts care to watch.

ok im tired of this

for the last time iupati played RT at senior bowl when he was a LG he dominated in practice as an LG and he will be p[laying LG for us

This was a dumb idea the first thread you started on it. Pick a guy who plays the position to play that position.

cause they wanted a guard and tackle not a tackle and tackle



they got a top 5 tackle and the best pure G in the draft

He wouldn't be a better Guard than Iupati.

If you're really worried about Davis busting, remember that Iupati has just as much ability to move to RT as Bulaga would to LG. Drafting a guy only to move him from his natural spot is always risky. And the 9ers haven't have much success doing that either.

No -- easier to move from OT to OG than the other way.

People are ignoring facts. BOTH Davis AND Bulaga played guard in College. Davis was a FRESHMAN ALL-AMERICAN at guard and Bulaga played the position too.

So,

Davis/Bulaga would have been equivelant to drafting two OT/OGs!
