Jets eyeing Iupati in Round 1?2:35PM ET New York Jets Top Email
The Brandon Marshall rumors taught us many things, but perhaps most centrally: The New York Jets value their first-round pick (No. 29 overall) more highly than many of us realize. After all, the ongoing belief is that if the Jets offered that pick, the Denver Broncos would easily accept a trade that would give Mark Sanchez and crew a young, dominant asset.
So who are they so hellbent on taking that they wouldn't like to have Marshall instead? Maybe an offensive lineman, which would seem crazy given that they already had three Pro Bowlers on the O-line in 2009. According to a report from National Football Post, the Jets are among three teams that hosted Idaho guard Mike Iupati for a workout this week. Iupati played guard in college, but he has the potential to slide to RT as a pro. The strong might be getting even stronger.In case you guys did not know!!!!!
