49ers Select Lineman Mike Iupati with 17th Pick

The 49ers selected offensive guard Mike Iupati from Idaho with their 17th pick. A surprise pick as the 49ers selected a lineman six picks earlier but this improves the offensive line from last year.  Iupati is a good run blocker and with Frank Gore getting older the 49ers are showing that they still believe in his abilities but realize they need a solid offensive line to have success with the run.
