    Iupati going to the Cowboys

    Makes sense. They love Free and will probably want to go one more year w/ Flo/Colombo.

    Iupati might just start day 1

    As much as I want a true OT, I would love Iupati. Just started scratching his potential and has very good size/strength/speed measurables. He might even be able to move over to OT.

    If they think Iupati can play RT I'd be all over it.

    Iupati is mean. He would fit in well with Colombo. If we draft Iupati we should expect several training camp fights over the next few years (not saying that's a bad thing).

    I would love to get Iupati. Besides Dez Bryant I think he's the best player in the draft. If we do get him I hope we keep him at guard though. He has a lot more value there.

    Start Free at RT and have Flo play another year at LT, with Colombo being the swing tackle.

    Colombo would get destroyed at LT.

    .aaaah NO way colombo could play LT. My gosh, he has enough trouble playing RT for god sakes. This Iupati kid is everyone's pick on here, which tells me we won't get him. Last year every mock said: "S- Patrick Chung" and we didn't get him either. .

    My concern with drafting an OG is that *I have read on this board that* Kosier helps Gurode w/ the line calls. If we're having trouble recognizing blitzes and blocking assignments now, then how bad will we be when Gurode doesn't have help w/ the calls anymore?

    If they're going to draft an OG, they had better get a starting-quality OC and I don't see that happening due to Gurode's Pro Bowl status.

    So, they can either draft an OT to pair w/ Free and an OC to allow Gurode to compete w/ Kosier, or they have to draft OT, OG and OC.....and hit on all of them. Doesn't seem too likely.
