If the top rb is still on the board at 20, you take him. Right?

I wouldn't have a problem with that. The real question is: Do you take Spiller over Kyle Wilson?

I don't know if Spiller is Kijana Carter or Curtis Martin with the wings of Mercury on his feet. And I don't know for sure if Iupati is The next coming of a twenty pound heavier Allen Faneca (Mike Mayock's words not mine ) or Robert Gallery. What I do know is you always build from the inside out, not the outside in. Anyone telling anything different than that is reaching. And teams that don't address the trenches first usually are always also rans. The reason why is simple. You are always having to re address the QB and RB positions for the wear and tear. Just look at the 'Natti. They haven't been worth warm Spit since Munoz retired. 'Course I believe in the Denver RB system. I believe we can train the lower guys up to work behind the o-line. I believe we're one player away from dominating our division. Can't sack Manning, keep him on the pine. We got seven up front on defense sooner or later will make him throw one bad. Iupati is my choice if he makes it to twenty. Got to get past San Fransico, Miami and the Steelers first. And that is far from a done deal. Be pretty funny if Frisco passes on Spiller and selects Iupati wouldn't it ?

Wouldn't be funny or odd at all since they have Frank Gore and just drafted Glenn Coffee.

I believe Frank is about done. What I can see is an interior with Bass-Heitman-Iupati.....which would pretty much give Frisco the division, every year for the next several years. They will be able to run the ball, no matter who the back is, with impunity.

CJ Spiller? Yes Please.

I'd be shocked if he dropped to us though.

I have to agree with you OMT. I think I would go with Wilson over Spiller. As for Iupati, I don't know if he fits in with what the Texans are looking for in an Olineman, although his size compares to that of Pitts (Iupati 6'5" 325 lbs, Pitts 6'4" 321 lbs). Right now, if the 3 were available during the Draft, I think I would go with Wilson, but that could change after the Combine.

You believe he's "done"? Based on what?

He's 26 and has rushed for 1102, 1036, and 1120 yards over the past three seasons.

He takes a lot of shots.
