I think with the combination of Kuper and Iupati (who I consider to be one of the best G to come out of college in a long time) the Ol would be solid for the next 8-10 yrs. This would be the 1st time since this teams inception that it had good young talented players at all positions on the OL. You get this luxury by spending the 20th pick on Iupati.
It's a small price to pay. IHO
Hell if you've got Kuper and Iupati at the guard then shift Caldwell back to center...holy cow. It would matter a little less who we added to the RB rotation with the likely push we could get up front.
