Yeah the NFL hype machine is in full swing. The guy dominated in college but how can you evaluate him? The level of competition was horrible. But he'll be drafted way to high based on potential. I was hoping he'd be in consideration for our second round pick.

No they weren't. Iupati was never considered anything less than the best guard prospect in that draft!! He didn't start out as 2nd or 3rd round pick. Not to mention Midwestern State being a Division II school.

Iupati started out as a late 1 / early 2 projection with questions about competition level.

Iupati appeared more dominant against USC than Silatolu did against D2 competition, it's not even close. Iupati is hands down, far and away, the better prospect.

ever since the mock draft "season" really got going 2 months ago I've never seen him lower then pick 70 and no earlier then 45. So I'd buy it if he is being considered a top 40-45.

thats what you want, if the guy absolutely crushes D2 competition then he would probably be above average or still dominate most d1 competition as well. I dont even know what conference Iupati's college was and he went top 20. Silatolu is incredibly versatile and as you say dominated his competition so those are still more positive then negative. I'd be happy if he ended up being the pick at 30.

Agreed.

Nobody's saying Iupati wasn't the better prospect. He clearly was. The only comparison is that both faced questions about the level of competition and both rose in value as the draft got closer. That's all we are saying. It shouldn't surprise anyone that a guy facing competition questions would rise or fall as he goes through work outs.

Hope he hasn't and Harbaugh teaches him, otherwise he is gone.
Silatolu with the first rounder or we can forget it.
