He also is experienced in a ZBS. Both should be long fixtures on the line but I do have a concern about Iupati going 16 games at his weight.
Iupati looks lean , he has a big lower body . He moves well and one thing about playing against smaller schools , sometimes you go against smaller , quicker DL , and he had no problems . It all depends on him being physical and and a little nasty in the trenches .
In the words of Jimmy Johnson , You can't be great if you don't take some risk in the draft . Iupati ... IMO ... has a much higher ceiling than most players . Of course he may never reach that ceiling but it's high .
Jimmy's quote was about this player .
