Mock Draft: Iupati and Alualu

Idaho offensive lineman Mike Iupati and Cal defensive lineman Tyson Alualu are mentioned in a mock NFL Draft.

27) Cincinnati: Mike Iupati (OG Idaho)
The big Samoan is rocketing up draft boards. Iupati is 6'6" and is listed at 330 lbs., but is probably more. Most importantly, the guard moves like he is around 200 lbs. and can get to the next level on sweeps and draws. Iupati could end up moving to right tackle and both positions could use an upgrade in Cincy.

If Iupati was drafted he would join fellow Samoans Jon Fanene, Rey Maualuga, and Domata Peko

55) Tampa Bay (from Chi.): Tyson Alualu (DT/DE California)

Playing DE in a 3-4, he hasn't put up tremendous numbers throughout college, but is a dominant lineman nonetheless. Alualu is a high character guy with a lot of upside. Tampa Bay needs as many guys like that as they can get.
