Neither am I, he didn't look to quick in the kick slide, but Bulaga was impressive.

Honestly I think the island nation guys get so much hype because of guys like Troy and Ngata. But iupati is not even close to as good!

I think Iupati is gonna be a real good guard in the NFL, but think he gets overhyped a lot by Mayock. Not that important for an interior lineman to have a good kick slide, but he will need a good bit of technical refinement before he becomes elite.

I still think he should go in the bottom 1/3 of the 1st round...but somebody might jump at him sooner. I think he doesnt get past the Cowboys in the 1st.

did anyone see his workout?

Makes the other guys look like Manut Bol by comparison.

Not suggesting that he's a tackle and yes he needs some work. Just looked like a really athletic guy at the combine.
