My bad. I thought he said Bulaga, but he said Iupati. (Strange names)

It's a long way to the draft, but if the NFLDS estimate that he will run a sub-5 40, I think the earlier draft projections of him as a borderline top-10 pick will be correct.  The only thing that dropped him was some games he missed with a thyroid condition.

If we can't get McClain or Dan Williams or Bulaga, might be a good year to trade back in R1, and possibly move up in R2-3... 

Keep an eye on Brandon Ghee, CB, Wake, and Kyle Wilson, CB, Boise.  Those guys look like some good targets for us if we trade down in R1 (Ghee) or up in R2 (Wilson).

OK then.  My reply was re: Bulaga. 

Another report from Mobile:

Quote from: Matt McGuire
Idaho's Mike Iupati was very physical in 11v11's, but in 1v1's he was simply on the ground too much for my liking. He'll overextend and play top heavy, but the more I think about it, the more I'm convinced there's no way the Cowboys pass up on him in the first round. He's a prototypical guard for their system. Iupati manhandled Purdue defensive tackle Mike Neal a couple times and made it look easy - and Neal is an impressive specimen.

Some folks are projecting Iupati and Ducasse as OG/OT types, but I think they may be more suited inside.  There's a question of value at 1.18 then.

Isn't he more of a quarter-full wild back?

Yeah, he'd be a gizmo back, but he could eventually blossom into a McMahon type. Of course, he'd bring a lot of baggage with the homophobia thing.

Can't go wrong with either, IMO.  Both are locks to be studs, obv.
