Doubt that happens.) We should go either THomas FS/CB or Wilson CB @ #20. A power back in 2nd and Walton or Johnson in 3rd really moves the O to another level. I am ok with Mike Johnson and see him as a Chester Pitts type. I used to think Pitts was gone but now am thinking he will return at 31 yoa. Brown, Pitts, Myers/Walton, Briesel/Caldwell with Rashad Butler and my 5th rounder Newhouse battling it out.
If we know about Marshall Newhouse, I think it would be pretty naive of us not to believe every mushroom club member out there knows about him also. He starts out being able to handle four out of five o-line positions. Which makes him absolute gold come the final cuts. He saves roster spots.
We'll have to agree to disagree on Iupati. i believe the grabbing can be coached out of him by camp. I also believe he could handle four out of five positions...eventually. Lance just put hm at 16. We'll be very fortunate to have a shot at him. The last time I checked..SF still employs the ZBS.
