Notes:
Comes into this draft as one of the best players at the guard position...In his final season, the senior earned a spot on the All-American First Team...Was also an All-WAC First Team selection in 2009 and in 2008 he was selected for the Second Team...Did not surrender a sack in his final season and has a mixture of size and athleticism that makes him a rare breed...A physical player that can be very aggressive, but also possesses great rangeand mobility...Works just as hard off the field as he does on it and plays with an intensity and competitive nature that is matched by very few...Has played time at tackle as well making him a versatile option at the next level...A tremendous upside, but is still a bit unrefined and is still learning the game...Will likely need to fine tune his footwork and technique, but is regarded as the top interior lineman in this draft...The 49ers take another step to shore up their offensive line with the selection of the rugged Iupati.
