take a look at a guard like steve hutchinson. in his prime, he was absolutely dominant and one of the best lineman in the league, let alone just a guard. the vikings wanted him so badly they put a poison pill in their offer so the seahawks couldn't match.
an ok guard can be found just about anywhere, but a probowl guard like hutch and larry allen and guys like that are difficult to find and can change the game. i don't think iupati is on that level. i wouldn't be too bummed if he left but i would like to keep him at the right price.
still, if its iupati vs. crabtree there is no competition. you pay crabtree. i don't trust our team to draft a good WR anytime soon
