Getting Haden is very doable.
As for Iupati, he may be the highest rated OG but he's not worth a pick that high and I honestly wouldn't touch him til the 2nd round. I question the level of competition that he has faced in the WAC and have never known Idaho to be a hot bed of NFL talent. It's hard enough going from the SEC, Big 10, Pac 10, Big 12, ACC, etc... to the NFL but going from a minor university, football wise, is much harder. You usually don't see many small school guys ever go in the 1st round. Iupati would have to be the second coming of Bruce Mathews to be worth a 1st round consideration and I don't think he is.
Iupati would be worth a pick around 22. We would trade down, and garner more picks if possible.
Iupati is a safe pick, regardless of school. He has great size and strength, as well as a very high ceiling.
Who would you take?
