With the Pouncey twins entering Iupati may drop to the 2nd.

I don't think the Pouncey twins have declared for the draft yet. I think they'll wait until after the bowl game to do so, but I've heard that it's 90% likely that they will. Also, I'm not so sure that they would unseat Iupati as the #1 OG in the draft. Maurkice could come close, but I don't see Mike going before the late 2nd round. Regardless, it looks like there will be several very good OGs available in the 2nd and 3rd rounds this year.

I would like to see the O-Line addressed early in the draft, but I don't think that taking a guy like Iupati would be a smart pick. He is ranked as the best OG in the draft, even if the Pouncey's declare. One plays center and could potentially play that in the NFL. If the Lions were picking at 20ish then I'd say go for it, but unfortunately they're not.

They are from Florida. Mike Pouncey plays Guard and is 6-5 320 and his twin brother Maurkice Pouncey plays Center and is 6-5 318. They are Juniors and could be declaring. They are both pretty solid players, and could be moved around to any of the interior spots. Maurkice won the Rimington last night as the nations top center.

If the Lions didn't sign Raiola to a 4 year extension, I probably would have liked that idea. But, they did, so..... :(

I don't like the idea of drafting brothers, esp. in the same draft.

Millen liked the idea of signing the worse brother. :lol:

You could also argue Boss Bailey v Champ Bailey...

I don't think the other Raiola is in the league so we got the better one that time. Also Holt can be brought into this

Let's not forget Bullocks....Josh has been better than Daniel, if nothing more than simply by the fact Josh isn't a walking injury.

Does anyone know how to pronounce "Iupati"?

Just like it sounds. :D

Hell, I don't know, but I'd imagine that the announcers will say his name during Idaho's bowl game.
