I don't care if Iupati is the highest rated player on the board, we have other needs that outweigh the supposed value. The first three picks need to be some combo of defensive and offensive playmakers. End rant.
What position besides S do you think a rookie can come right in and take?
I think EVERY player we take this draft starts as a b/u this season. There is NOTHING wrong with drafting a guy who can back up every position on the oline this year, and eventually start in a year or two.... especially giving Faneca and Woody's age.... and contracts.
