Lions | Iupati catches Linehan's attention

Nicholas J. Cotsonika, of the Detroit Free Press, reports Idaho OG Mike Iupati has captured the attention of Detroit Lions offensive coordinator Scott Linehan. Linehan said, "I've heard a lot of good things about him, and it's holding true. You really notice him. He can do the double teams. He's powerful. But you see him pull." Linehan noted that Iupati is so athletic that he can see him playing at four spots on the offensive line. The team has tried him at both guard spots and at left tackle. Iupati said "right guard's just a little bit uncomfortable" and he has no experience at offensive tackle, but head coach Jim Schwartz said Iupati wasn't out of place.
