Data Scout Notes: AP1st/WCamp1st/1stC/AFCA/OutlandFinalist/PLombardi/POutland/2nd team
Post-Draft Outlook:BEST PICK: Guard Mike Iupati -- The 49ers did not buy into the long-held belief that guards do not have value in the middle of the first round. The last guard who went this high in the draft was Steve Hutchinson in 2001, and he has been to seven Pro Bowls.
A closer look at the 49ers' picks: Round 1/17 -- Mike Iupati, OG, 6-5, 331, Idaho: The 49ers were prepared to take him with their first selection in the first round. They like his size and aggressive approach. But they'll have to harness his aggression. - by The Sports Xchange
