(Photo by Kevin Terrell/Getty Images), per the Dallas Morning News, has reported that Idaho's Mike Iupati, an All-American guard, will visit the Dallas Cowboys among a slew of other teams leading up to next month's NFL Draft.

    A three-year starter and an Outland Trophy finalist in 2009, Iupati is described by as the premier interior lineman in the 2010 draft class, adding that he is versatile enough to play tackle or guard at the next level. Whether Iupati will make it to Dallas's selection, 27th overall, is a question unto itself.

    Iupati's stock has risen since playing his final game for the Vandals substantially, and he is now projected to go between the 16th and 23rd selection. As such, he has quite the busy month or so ahead of him. He has worked out (or will work out) for the Eagles, Jets, Texans, Packers, Lions, Browns and Bengals.

    Aside from Dallas, of course, it's been announced that he will visit with Tampa Bay, San Diego, Pittsburgh, Minnesota, Miami, Kansas City and Atlanta.

    According to, Iupati is the top-rated guard in the draft.
