MOSCOW -- University of Idaho offensive lineman Mike Iupati is expected to be one of the top picks in this week's National Football League Draft.

The first round is on the Thursday and that's when most experts predict Iupati will be selected.

One writer for CBSSports.com has "Big Mike" (he's 6'6" 330 lbs) going as high as 18th overall to the Pittsburgh Steelers, while another has Iupati falling as low as 31st overall to the Indianapolis Colts. He's listed as high as 11th overall to the Denver Broncos in the DraftSite.com mock draft, but he's most consistently pegged as the 23rd overall selection to the Green Bay Packers.

Iupati is listed as the 17th best prospect available in the draft by Scout.com.

All of the speculation will be over soon. The NFL Draft is scheduled to start at 4:30pm (PT) on Thursday in New York City. The second and third rounds will take place on Friday, while the fourth through seventh rounds will happen on Saturday. We'll have you covered from head-to-toe all three days on KREM 2 News and KREM.com.
